Let’s Talk Turkey & Swap Our Favorite Thanksgiving Day Recipes

Thanksgiving recipe swap with monogrammed apron drawing

Well time to find just the right envelope with the backside completely empty so I can start on my Thanksgiving menu since we will be home this year. Have you noticed it’s harder to find just the right envelope since snail mail is less plentiful than it used to be? Perhaps this year I’ll use the keyboard and printer instead of licking the end of my pencil pensively prior to writing each item on my list. Regardless of how the menu is compiled I could use some great recipes.

So add your favorite Thanksgiving recipe animal, vegetable or dessert; it doesn’t matter as long as it is wonderful and you don’t leave out any ingredients. Your reward for sharing? Your recipe will be your entry for a personalized/monogrammed apron….just in time for holiday baking!

One recipe will enter you for 2 drawings one for an adult apron and one for a child’s apron. So dig out your cranberry secrets or your clandestine L-tryptophan hints and comment* on this posting to enter. Be sure to check back through out the month and pick up recipes for your Turkey Day Dinner. Mark December 1, 2009 on your calendar as the winners will be posted and it may be you! Contest only open to mailing addresses in the US and Canada.
