Serenity Sunday

This Thursday, millions of families will gather around beautifully decorated tables to give thanks for all that they have. In honor of this day of gratitude, here's my Homemade Cranberry Relish recipe. I have nothing but fond memories of my grandmother each time that I make it for a celebratory dinner.

Cranberry Relish

*1 bag whole cranberries
*1 orange (chunked)
*1 apple (chunked)
*1 large box strawberry jello
* 1 cup of sugar

Grind cranberries, orange and apple until finely chopped (I use a food processor but a blender or food chopper will work too.) Pour into large mixing bowl and add in box of strawberry jello. Add sugar to taste... until not too tart, not too sweet. Let set in the refrigerator over night and  voilà relish!

My List:

1.) My children

2.) Family traditions

3.) Brown and crispy turkey skin (yummy!)

4.) The smell of fresh baked rolls

5.) Happy memories

6.) Grandmothers

7.) Brown, red and gold tablecloths

8.) Mulled wine

9.) Silly turkey napkin rings

10.) Full tummies

*  Framed turkey hand print made by my son Conor in first grade.
