It's true, I, D Dennison will be on stage presenting a cooking demo at the Front Range Food Show. When I was first asked, I was instantly nervous, I hadn't even said yes yet, so I hope that you come out and support me.
The standard veggies are fine for Thanksgiving, but it's fun to throw a curve ball in there once in a while. And remember to add the new recipes, don't omit old ones for the new creations, your family will revolt and head for the seas.
I'm not asking you to change your tradition, actually the best way to introduce new items to your menu is to keep the tried and true favorites and just add a new item, but no more than 2 at a time or the pilgrims will get restless. How about Roasted Asparagus?
Before you know it the house will smell of turkey and there will be a sweet potato casserole food fight at a table near you. What do you make for Thanksgiving, all the tried and true recipes? Do you do appetizers?
Mac and Cheese is a great vessel for all of your favorite ingredients. You'd be amazed what you can put in there. And the good news is that you can use your favorite pre-made or boxed mac and cheese to make it a quick full meal.
When I was first told about the Front Range Food Show, I said "What"!!!??? Heck ya, and now it's almost time to dive in and enjoy the best of the best of Northern Colorado and beyond. Come with me for a personal guide through the schedule of events.
