Scrappy Giveaway Time

Wednesday, November 10, 2010
{Giveaway now closed 1:20pm EST 11/15}

I decided to jump on the giveaway bandwagon that is so contagious :)

One of the first blogs I started to follow was Jodi's blog (before it was Pleasant Home.) Well she had a brilliant idea to host a scrappy quilt along... Yeah, like I need another UFO but hey, life's too short to not have UFO's! So head on over to Jodi's if you want to join in the Scrap Along goodness:





Leave me a comment on this post. Make it interesting for my benefit :) Tell me what your favorite Thanksgiving dish is. Is it the deep fried turkey? The pecan pie? The stuffing? Do tell and you will be entered to win an a large envelope or box (depends on which I have at home!) stuffed with scraps from my scrappy stash! Sorry but this one is for Continental US residents only. I'll pick a winner 11/15 sometime noon-ish

oooh what do you see?

I keep my scraps in 8 different canvas bins ($2 on clearance at Walmart) sorted by "like colors." Just earlier today I ran off to Target to buy one of these cube organizers. I asked Mr. PD to build me one of these and he thought the cost would be about the same soooo... since I wanted it NOW! I ran off to Target with his blessing! :)

...and since you're here make sure you go and check out my other blog:

One of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes is from Southern Living....5 onion bake- leeks, shallots, green onions, pearl onions, white sweet onions, cream (I know, groan, but it is sooooo good!) and a ritz cracker topping.....My mom made this for us, and now my daughter and I make it! thanks for this chance for more scraps LOL (like my sewing room doesn't have enough!) fondly, Sandy

Jeane said...

Sorry you don't like Canadians! I bet if I went to your Etsy Shop you would ship to Canada.

Gene Black said...

Mmmm.... My favorite is sweet potato casserole. To be "right" it must have pecans in it and marshmallow goo on top. I really really like to have some pineapple in it too. Mmmmmmm....now I am hungry. Lucky for me that tonight we are going to Mexico Lindo.
I also make a killer onion bread that is very moist. It is my "dressing" since I don't like traditional dressing/stuffing.

Carol in E TN said...

I would just love to win your scraps. Scraps quilts are the best!

Colleen said...

Yeah more scraps! The turkey! I could eat plate after plate-dark meat!

Tracy said...

I need to start organizing my scraps. I'm fairly new to quilting, and most everything looks the same.

I love homemade stuffing(dressing) and pumpkin pie!

Anita said...

When I was a kid it was the mashed potatoes and gravy. Now it is the stuffing but I still love mashed potatoes and gravy - all the low-fat dishes!

dorthac said...

I love the hash brown casserole and the broccoli apple salad. Together with the turkey make a great meal. Thanks for the opportunity to win some scraps.

Amy said...

Hello,I just found your blog,I will be stopping by often to see what is new.My favorite Thanksgiving dish is sweet potato casserole.Thanks for the chance to win.Amy

Patches said...

Getting this opportunity to win some scraps for my collection is a special treat. Thanks for sharing.

Kasey said...

My favorite dish is one i made for the first time last year... sausage cranberry stuffing! I had never had stuffing before, so I blame this new tradition on my husband. I also love homemade mashed potatoes (the slightly lumpy, skin-on kind), and FUDGE. It's a good thing our family is either walking or running together in a 5K thanksgiving morning this year, because I'm hungry just thinking about it!

cvdnurse said...

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is definitely the sweet potato casserole. This year I'm using the Pioneer Woman's recipe and I can't wait! Love scraps, too and thanks for a great giveaway.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh stuffing, we only have it once a year and I cannot wait!!! Thank you for the chance.

Carol said...

My favorite thing about our Thanksgiving is having at my mother -in-law's home. She lives in the country in a 100 year old home. It feels like going back in time to go there. I love the wonderful dressing that she makes too!

Netta said...

Thanks for the giveaway. Thanksgiving fav would be the 'Heart Stop Potatoes' whipped with sour cream and cream cheese....need i say more. nanasew at gmail dot com

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is onion casserole! It has sweet onions, rice and swiss cheese and it's yummy!

I think my favorite Thanksgiving dish is the orange salad, it's one of those sweet cool whip mixes with mandarin oranges amoung other things. So good!

chris said...

Favorite Thanksgiving dish - I usually look forward to the homemade stuffing and pumpkin pie. Just started organizing my scraps and bought some canvas bins at Big Lots. Would love to fill some of my bins with your scraps. Thanks for the chance. What's your favorite thanksgiving dish?

Kelly O. said...

I love it!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Deborah said...

Yeah-huh, I love scraps. And my favorite for Thanksgiving? Cranberry Cake. Try it - you're gonna love it. I know you didn't ask for the recipe, but you're gonna love it. (Heat oven to 350 degrees. 2 cps raw cranberries, 3/4 c chopped walnuts, 1/3 c sugar. Put into well greased 10" pie pan. Mix 1 c flour, 3/4 c sugar, 3/4 c melted butter, 2 eggs, 2 tsp almond extract. Pour over cranberries, nuts and sugar. Bake for 35-40 minutes). YUMMY!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I'm all about the turkey and pumpkin pie :)

I've just started to organize my scraps in canvas bins. I'm hoping to eventually sort by color but I haven't made it there yet.

Margaret T. Zenk said...

loving me some cranberries. The sauce made with whole cranberries is my fave. Once a year. Nobody else likes it. What is wrong with people?
I love me some scraps too

Pumpkin cake rolls with cream cheese frosting. Yummy. Thanks for the chance.

Jenny said...

i just love my mom's homemade noodles...thick and wide, just like i like them! she is the best cook! thanks for a chance.

sandandstarfish said...

My favorite dish is always the sweet potatoes covered in marshmallows. My husband grew up in an Italian household so instead of turkey and potatoes and whatnot, they had meatballs and lasagna and whatnot. Needless to say we have more than enough leftovers to last a lifetime! Thanks for sharing your scraps with us! I bought one of those cube hinge from target and wish i had bought one for every room! I LOVE them!

beanie g said...

My favorite is a toss up between sweet potato casserole and stuffing (both just great for the waistline, not!)

spencers said...

Green bean casserole! Don't know why but it's a favorite in my book. Thanks!

Phyllis said...

Besides turkey and dressing, I love sweet potato crunch. It is so good!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

My daughter makes the most awesome Pumpkin Pie Cake! Moist and delicious and usually gone :-)

Janet said...

I love the pretzel stuffing in the turkey. Pretzels, onion, celery, peppers and poultry seasoning and a little broth to moisten it. Yummy!

Lynn said...

Weird as it may sound: the brussel sprouts, roasted with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper, yum.

Patty said...

My favorite is pumpkin pie! yummy. Thanks for the great giveaway.

luckymom said...

Wow, what an awesome bunch of scraps. My favorite dish to make and to eat is my potato casserole. Can't forget the Turkey though. Thanks for the chance for this awesome giveaway.

Brenda said...

Max's Mommy said...

Great scraps!!

I'm a new sewer, so I need to build up my stash!

One favorite?! Too hard! But I guess I would pick my grandma's homemade noodles.

Renea said...

My favorite Thanksgiving food is the cinnamon rolls my husband makes every year for Parade morning breakfast. He has to make dozens and dozens as we give to family and friends also. Thanks for the giveaway.

razberiswrl said...

Oh, Thanksgiving, how I love thee ... Let me count the ways:

Turkey cooked in the style of Puerto Rican pernil
Candied sweet potatoes
Mashed potatoes with caramelized onion
Whole berry cranberry sauce right out of the can!!!

I'm so excited. LOL!

Thanks for hosting a scrappy giveaway!

Di~ said...

MMMmmm love the double chocolate pie for dessert. thanks for the chance to win your scraps AND I'm glad I found your blog!

Sweet Potato Pie was the first pie I ever learned to cook when I was about 12 years old.

Connie said...

My favorite is pumpkin bread. Love your bins and I have been wanting to get a couple of the cubes with 9 spaces. I've seen them at Menards but haven't looked at Target. Love your scrap giveaway!

Victoria Paige said...

I love this sew scraps along thing! I am finding so many great bloggers that I wouldn't have found myself.

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the stuffing. This year is my first Thanksgiving in my own home as a wife and soon to be mother. I hope I do our dinner justice!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Lori said...

I most remember parsnips being served at Thanksgiving. NO ONE liked them, but we always had them. I mean who eats these? Or knows what they are!!

Kathy said...

Love the sorting idea, thanks. Off to check on the other blog now - it looks interesting too!

Angela D. said...

My favorite would have to be stuffing. My mom makes the best bread and herb stuffing - nothing beats it.

Thanks for the giveaway!

J-me said...

My Nana's Homemade ravioli is my absolute favorite. She makes the dough, and the cheese insides, and puts it all together....it is the best. We have it for thanksgiving and christmas. mmmm My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

oh yeah, I would love to win some scraps too!

lindagerig said...

I love pumpkin pie. just like my mom used to make. At least I can try to make it. lindagerig@sbcglobal.net

Linda said...

My son says no to "yard bird" for Thanksgiving dinner this year so guess we will have Prime Rib...delicious. So many good things to add to it! I know there will be a favorite lemon cheesecake, too. Just wanting to get going with quilting...so scraps would be great!

Debra said...

My favorite dish is squash cassarole. It's more like a crustless quiche. Love the scraps!

ange said...

Scraps scraps and more scraps..we'd love to create with them here!
My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the turkey! My dad cooks it in a brown paper bag stuffed..and it comes out juicy everytime. Turkey day can't get here soon enough!

maeve315@msn.com said...

I love the very simple cranberry relish that is mixed with fresh squeezed oranges and a tad bit of sweetener. It goes with everything and it is just as good as dessert. Yum! And I love scraps, they are so interesting and prompt me to improvise usually spontaneously just to create something. Pick me please! Thanks!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

OK let's admit it - it isn't the main meal at all - it is raiding the fridge a few hours later and making that jaw-breaker turkey sandwich. Turkey, lather with mashed potatoes, some cranberry relish, the pickles, oh go for it - add that spoonful of dressing. Oh I love the sandwich afterward.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

Hands down Brined Turkey, (I'm posting the "how to" on Monday). It's absolutely amazing and hurray for the pumpkin pie too! I'm loving your blog, and am sure I would be stoked to nab your scraps...only Jodi could get all of us to beg all over blogland! ;D Thanks for the chance.

Alia said...

I live in the Middle East but can I still join as my family is in the US? If so, I love my turkey with my stuffing and homemade pumkin pie and a great green bean casserole and sparkling grape juice and, and, well, Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday.

Mama24Monkeys said...

My favorite thanksgiving dish is the upside down apple pie. Think of an apple pie with caramel and peacans oozing over it. Yummy!

Judy said...

My favorite is dish is Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Pie. It is decadent and I make only twice a year. But the favorite thing about Thanksgiving is the gathering of family and my extended family. 20 of them I think this year. Thanks for the wonderful blog!!

Amber. said...

Wait, I'm supposed to have a FAVORITE Thanksgiving dish? Since Thanksgiving is my fav holiday, this is tough. I would have to say this year, I'm especially looking forward to making thankful rolls. You have each guest write down something that he/she is thankful for on a piece of light brown paper and then you put the paper in the crescent rolls! When they bake up, and people open them, they discover what everyone else is thankful for! <3 Thanks for the consideration!

KristyLou said...

Hmmmm, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love all of the food on my mom's table. This year we will not be attending that Thanksgiving (too far away) so I am going to attempt to make smaller versions of some of the food.... :)

Lynn said...

I'd love some scraps!

We don't do traditional Thanksgiving food. We usually try some sort of seafood/butter/mega calorie dinner.

My favorite was crayfish etouffe.

If I had to go traditional..it would be sausage and bacon stuffing.
Lynn

Katie said...

My favorite dish at Thanksgiving is the turkey leftovers! I have some special meals that I make with the leftover turkey, and my family looks forward to them every year.

Miss White Wall said...

It has to be Pumpkin pie and I can't wait for turkey dinner! Thanks for hosting!

Marie said...

I love the stuffing covered with turkey gravy. Then day 2, 3, etc I make stuffing sandwiches with mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce along with the stuffing.

Thank you for your generousity.

Melissa said...

I love the idea of cube storage for your scraps. Thanks, I am moving in a few months and really want to do a little remodel for the sewing room. I love the pumpkin pie. Can't get enough of it. Seriously, we make like 9 pies for Thanksgiving :)

pinsandneedles said...

My favorite for Thanksgiving has got to be the pumpkin pie!

Love scraps! I've joined Jodi's Sew Scrap Along! Thanks for a chance!

snippetsandyarns said...

I have never made a scrappy project, but the one I'm working on almost could've been. I just didn't have the right scraps for it before I started.

My favorite Thanksgiving (any holiday, really) dish is actually my great-grandmother's cookies. My grandmother makes them for us now. They are no-bake peanut butter cookies, and they are the only requirement for me to eat at our family gatherings.

Barbara M. said...

I love anything with cranberries - even that horrible stuff that comes in a can!

Betty Crocker wannabe said...

I love dressing or sweet potato casserole!

Katie said...

I love the cranberry salad with ginger. SO tasty!!

Francis said...

It is a toss up for me... before I was married, I loved my mom's strawberry-pretzel-jello-salad. But now that I'm married I'd have to go with my husbands strawberry-rhubarb-pie! Oh my.

Jane said...

I love your blog. I like the way you have your scraps separated in the canvas bins. I love turkey and cornbread dressing and giblet gravy. I am for the south and actually love everything about Thanksgiving. Family, friends and the great food!

Doodlebug + Friends said...

My fave turkey day dish would have to be my famous "Drunken Turkey". Yes, drunken. I brine the poor unsuspecting bird for 24+ hours in a modified Emril brine recipe. Then on roasting day, I inject the poor fellow with sherry, brandy, whisky, or whatever I happen to have open on my shelf. Multiple times. Till the poor fellow is so full of booze that he absolutely reeks. Then roast according to Betty Crocker's timetable in the cookbook. I've NEVER had complaints about a dry (or flavorless) turkey in the 12 years I've been married. It's a close call between this and my father-in-law's smoked turkey.

I would love your scraps!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Turkey and stuffing, yum. Pumpkin cheesecake is my favorite recipe. Double yum! Love the scraps, would be great to add to my collection.

Diane said...

I found your blog through Pleasant Home. My favorite Thanksgiving food is brussel sprouts with bacon bits. I would love to win an envelope or box whatever. . . Love scrappy quilts.

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

I LOVE Pumpkin Pie. I eat on Thanksgiving and if there is any left, over I have it for breakfast the next day.

Quilt n Queen said...

I love everything there is about Thanksgiving dinner except the clean up. The stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, hot buttered beets but best of all is the pumpkin cheesecake!!!!! yummy. Usually my eyes are bigger than my tummy and I have the cheesecake the next day.

Absolutely love your quilting!!!!

Have a wonderful thanksgiving

Marilyn S said...

Love, love, love scraps. My favorite Thanksgiving item is the Sweet Potatoes. I make them with an orange glaze that is so wonderful. Can't wait to eat them. Thanks for the give away.

em's scrapbag said...

This is a hard one. I love Thanksgiving but if I have to pick I'd have to say pie. I have two favorites there, hot and cold. hee hee!

sandrinha said...

My favorite dish for Thanksgiving is Pumpkin pie with wipe cream on the top and Ice cream :D
my email meglitle@hotmail.com
my blog www.brasilhawaii.com
Thank you for the opportunity.

Happy thanks giving!!!

Cassey said...

My favorite dish is the pumpkin pie...but last year at my in-laws no one made a pumpkin pie because apparently none of them like pumpkin pie! What kind of craziness have I married into!

Alex said...

Yay scraps! For me the stuffing is the highlight of any turkey meal.

EmileeHope said...

It would be the rolls for sure! They are homemade yeast rolls from a recipe I learned to make from my aunt and grandmother when I was growing up. Now I am the one in charge of making them every year for the big holidays. They are full of butter and I am sure horrible for you, but so delish!!!

Remembrances said...

Wow, great scraps and difficult question! My favorite Thanksgiving dish, hmmmm.... is it the turkey I smoke in the Japanese Komado, or maybe the Carrot Soup - no, it's the Cheesy Potatoes ... I think ... well, I don't know, I really like them all. Oh pooh! I can't choose! Happy Thanksgiving!

midnight hysteria said...

love the turkey -- basically, the way I make it ... LOL -- stuffing, the way I make it, and the apple and pumpkin pies ... you got it, the way I MAKE EM .... would love the giveaway scraps, scraps are always welcome ..... thanks for the chance ....

Sarah Craig said...

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the fresh cranberry relish, made with a bag of fresh cranberries (duh!), a whole orange (peel and all!), and a cup of sugar - whiz it through the food processor, chill for a few hours, and YUM! Makes a great spread on turkey sandwiches, too!

And by the way, I use those Target cubicles to store my fabric - they work great, and if you fold your fabric around a 5" ruler, you can fit two stacks side by side in each cubby!

Gretchen said...

I'm new at quilting. Slowly teaching myself. This is fun! It's hard to pick a favorite dish since I love all food on Thanksgiving. I always pig out and don't care. It's my cheat day. My all time favorite is homemade mac and chees and mashed potatoes from my Dad's family. You just can't beat it. It's wonderful with turkey. Thanks for inspiring.lol

tellad said...

My favorite dish is the dressing! I love, love, love the stuff!!!! and I love the stash holders you have! I got to get some of those! Teri Dingler -tdingler@bellsouth.net

pedblom said...

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is made with turkey-day leftovers and is called "turkey bake." Hmmmm, so good! Hope I win your give-away!

Pam E. - Las Vegas

MoRia said...

I would love to win your scraps. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the unexpected surprise side dish that someone brings to the meal. Most recently, my sister-in-law made a great broccoli salad that is delicious.

natalie christensen said...

I love rice pudding on Thanksgiving it has become a tradition. Love your scrap bins!

epban said...

Pumpkin Pie for me!

Trisha said...

Hi Norma, thanks for the chance to win some fun scraps. I love the stuffing my sister makes every year. I can't get enough of it! And I was delighted to come over from Pleasant Home and see my daughter on your blog header. How fun!! I called her over and we both got a kick out of it.

Coloradolady said...

Oh, I could use these scraps!! My favorite is dressing and cranberry sauce! Thanks for the chance.

stitching under oaks said...

I'm not sure I can pick a favorite dish for Thanksgiving. I love the entire meal....it's a favorite holiday of mine for sure. I just found your blog and I'm loving all the wonderful inspiration.

Nicole said...

Pumpkin things are my favorite. My aunt's recipe for fake pumpkin pie (pumpkin pie with a yellow cake mix) is always one of my favorites. Oh and home made cranberry sauce with orange in it. Now I'm hungry! Thanks for the giveaway!

JanetK said...

I have to make two pumpkin pies every year for Thanksgiving. It's my favorite. Why 2? So I can have it for breakfast all weekend (silly!). Thanks for the giveaway!

momofsixgirls said...

You are so inspiring! My favorite dish for Thanksgiving would have to be Corn Pudding-- sort-of a sweet corn bread with a banana-bread texture! Love it! Thanks for offering some of your scraps!

Brenda said...

I would love to win some scraps. Thanks for sharing.

Carlie said...

My favorite dish is sweet potato casserole with pecans and brown sugar on top...unfortunately I am the only one in my family that likes it!!! I love your scrap keeper system. thanks for the chance to take some of your scraps off your hands!

VickiT said...

I am probably in the minority but my favorite part of Thanksgiving is all the cooking in my kitchen for everyone. I LOVE cooking and if we did deep fried turkey that would be my favorite. I had one of those once before and OMG THE BEST but I'm not going to do that. I am partial to the leftovers made into a casserole woth the stuffing, gravy, and turkey. That's probably my favorite.

OOOOH those boxes of scraps look like fun to dig into, especially the one box that I see beautiful purple fabric in.

Obsession said...

My favorite food is the green bean casserole with the onion crisps...but my favorite part of Thanksgiving is family sitting down and enjoying some food and bonding.....I love watching my kids eating and laughing......

Awesome work that you do and I hope that I can be that good some day.

Lina said...

Thanksgiving, hmmmmm... gotta be the mashed potatoes with turkey gravy! Lots of butter and cream in those mashed potatoes, too. They just seem more special at Thanksgiving than at any other time. Thank you for the giveaway.
snuginmyden@yahoo.com

Cheryl said...

I love to have sweet potatoes (or yams) cooked the way my Mom always made them. Lots of butter and brown sugar. She passed away a few years ago and I have never been able to make them quite like hers. Thanks for the chance to win your scraps.

CrochetnQuilt said...

Sweet potato pie is the best! Thanks for sharing your scraps.

LindaW said...

My favorite dish is the dressing. Once a year treat! Thanks for a chance to win.

Mary said...

My favorite dish at Thanksgiving is pumpkin bars. They are like a pumpkin sheet cake with cream cheese icing. Yum!
Thanks for a fun giveaway!
This is my first time to your blog, thanks to Pleasant Home, and I can see I will be spending a lot of time looking around. Fun!

JuneBug said...

I am in love with fabrics lately, bitten by the sewing bug again and again.

I don't love thanksgiving food, really. In theory yes but in reality... I don't like leftovers!

But my favorite is the stuffing, with celery, onion, and apples!

Cecilia said...

I would love to win your scraps. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the Lemon pie that I make with my Mom's recipe. I remember srapping the pot when I was a child and I still like to do it now. :) Thanks for the giveaway.

lorene said...

oh soooo many choices for Thanksgiving. hmmmm, homemade pumpkin pie. I use the cinderella pumpking. it's shaped like the cinderella pumpkin from the disney movie. it's a silvery bluish color. the pumpkin inside is bright orange! I just follow the recipe on the libby's can. there is such a difference in taste! yum yum! new to your blog, so fun!!! thanks for putting my name in the hat!

Lorene

banjo795 said...

Let's see, my Thanksgiving dish, hmmmm. It is sooooo hard to choose, because well, Thanksgiving is about making all the traditional favorites! I think I'll have to choose the fresh rolls that are made with sweet potatoes. They are just slightly orange, and taste fantastic with some honey butter! Makes me hungry just thinking about them!

crickets said...

Well, this may sound strange, but my aunt's Brussel sprouts with vinegar and bacon are the BEST dish EVER at Thanksgiving. And she never makes it any other time of the year...they literally melt in your mouth!

Thx for the fun giveaway - your scrap look so fun!

Sue said...

Thanks for the chance to win some "scraps" I love scrap quilts to this is great.
My very favorite Thanksgiving dish is home made cranberry relish, yum, that could be my whole meal, well with pumpkin pie of course.

pamela said...

I too thank you for the chance to win.

One of our favorite dishes is red chili sauce. It is made with red chili powder (from New Mexico) sausage, cumin, flour, tomato sauce, water and other spices. We pour this all over our dressing, turkey and other food. It is soooo good and have converted many people to our tradition.

Marcia said...

My favorite Thanksgiving Day dish is my mother's pecan pie. My brother loves it too so sometimes she makes one and hides it "just for her boy". Thank you for this giveaway. I am attempting to win some scraps because as a new quilter do not have my own. I want to make some of Pleasant Home's quilt examples.

Mary said...

My favorite for Thanksgiving is my mom's coconut cream pie which I've learned to make since she is gone.
Thanks for the give-away.

CarlaSue said...

Gotta say it`s Spoonbread! We only do it at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

SPOONBREAD

2 eggs
14 oz can creamed corn
14 oz can reg. corn (drained)
1 cup sour cream
1 8 oz box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup shredded cheese + some for top
(I`ve used everything from cheddar to swiss, it`s all good)

Beat eggs slightly
Add sour cream, butter, corn.
Fold in Jiffy mix
Fold in cheese
Pour into 9x7 dish
Sprinkle more cheese on top
Bake at 350° 45-60 minutes (toothpick in center will come out clean)

So good it`ll make ya wanna slap yo mamma.

I know the recipe says to use a 9x7 pan but I use my great aunt`s old handpainted oval ceramic dish. I got it when she died and it`s the Official Spoonbread Recepticle.

Laurie said...

what's not to love at thanksgiving? I don't have a favorite dish - they're all good; but I do have a great tradition (well, my sister does) All of our kids are now young adults (there are six!) and she has a contest for who can bring the best appetizer, side or dessert. She cooks to main dish and provides a sizeable gift card to the winner...and dinner is served! Such fun to see what everyone brings. And the guys are the best cooks! Enjoy your holiday :)

Joy said...

Oh man, do I have to pick only one dish?? For me, it's not a Thanksgiving dinner without sweet potatoes (with the works: butter, brown sugar, marshmallows), mashed potatoes, the weird green lime jello "salad" grandma makes that has the cream cheese chunks in it, and, of course, enough pies (pecan, pumpkin, apple) to feed the entire neighborhood. So...yeah...I like Thanksgiving food. :)

Thanks for the chance to win your fun scraps!!

M'Lou Designs said...

To pick just one thing from Thanksgiving dinner ... I just can't do it! So a short list of my favorite things:
Fresh Cranberry sauce - no cans involved
Dressing - I made some one year with sausage crumbles that was AWESOME!
Pumpkin Cheesecake!! My all time favorite!

Susan said...

I love sweet potato with pineapple; it's just so delicious! Have you tried it before?

Texana said...

Thanksgiving dinner has ALWAYS been my favorite meal...sometimes my birthday falls on Thanksgiving and that is just the BEST! I can eat the leftovers for days and not get tired of it! But it just isn't Thanksgiving without my mother's home-made rolls, which thankfully she insisted I learn to make. But I think of her every time I make them.

I would adore winning your scraps!

Melissa said...

For years Thanksgiving was not my favorite Holiday up until the last several years when I have been able to cook the meal myself. I love dry brining the turkey and then cooking it with a buttered-cheese cloth. Makes the juicest turkey!! Yukon Gold mashed potatoes. So loooking forward to it.

I just got back into quilting and would love to put your scrapes to good use.

Happy Thanksgiving

Vesuviusmama said...

The pumpkin pie with the homemade whipped cream is definitely my favorite, although I also love all the veggies. I also love scraps, so my fingers are crossed!

WvHmmngbrd said...

Pumpkin pie is my favorite!!! Can't have Thanksgiving dinner without that!, and the turkey of course!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Chelley said...

The stuffing is my favorite part! Yummy cornbread stuffing with gravy. Everything else is a sidedish!

Pat S. said...

Hi Norma! have been hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the past 26 years, so what's my favorite Thanksgiving dish? The one that's made by someone else, of course! Thanks so much for the chance to win your giveaway!!!

peggy w said...

Well, well I REALLY like Pumpkin pie and I make it quite interesting - maybe cause I like pumpkin.
You better stick with pecan pie!

My two favorites at Thanksgiving time are the stuffing I make (that goes inside the turkey) and also, homemade sweet potatoes--bake the potatoes the night before until almost done. Cool, slice, add butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, a little maple syrup, and bake in the oven until bubbly goodness. To me, it's just like dessert!

Also, thanks for the opportunity to find a new blog and a chance to win your scraps.

I have a scrap quilt going now- dark blues and tans with orange accents. We have celebrated Thanksgiving in mountains about 4.5 hours from my home for the past couple of years. I usually contribute baked goods and in search of things that travel well have become known as bringing "The Festival of Pies". We have had pumpkin with a streusel topping, chocolate silk, pecan, and derby at least. It is about time to start on this year's list. Thanks for sharing your scaps.

I like your canvas bins for storing scraps, great idea! For Thanksgiving dinner, I love all the food, but what tops it off is the homemade rolls. Yummy, can't wait! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Your scraps look as delicious as a piece of pie! And I like your organizational bins which make your scraps easy to use.
Favorite thanksgiving dish? Pumpkin pie, for sure.
Thanks very much for sharing your fabrics with one of us.

I make a mean Sausage Rice Casserole that is sooooo good!! Only make it once a year either Thanksgiving OR Christmas!

Pam said...

I love the dressing made from my ex's grandmothers recipe. It tastes pretty good when I make it, but nowhere near as good as Nonie's. Thanks for the chance to win your scraps.

My favorite Thanksgiving dish is also my favorite Thanksgiving memory. Every year my Mom would start out early in the morning sauteing onions for the dressing. With 9 of us and at least as many guests, she'd put her 22 lb. turkey in the oven about 9. Then it was a rush to the finish as she and the "girls" made the rest of the dishes. Luckily, she had a 2 oven Wolf stove, so there was always room for her 2 pumpkin pies. By the time we all sat down to dinner, she was exhausted. So one of us was put in charge of whipping the cream for the pies. Here's my favorite part, pumpkin pie with runny whipped cream. None of us ever learned how to whip cream!

I love my apple cranberry pie. And scraps, of course.

Patti said...

I love my homemade cranberry relish. In fact, once Thanksgiving arrives, seems I'm making a batch every week. Love, love, love it. I would also love to give your scraps a new home. THANKS!

Lisa said...

Your scrap bins look delicious, that's my favorite dish -- scraps! Truly, my favorite Thanksgiving dish is pumpkin pie ~ it just captures all the goodness of autumn for me and I don't have it any other time of year. My hubby's is mashed potatoes. Then following the meal it's custom to walk around the neighborhood and reflect on the year. I love this time of year. ~~Lisa

Our favorite in the stuffing....our parents were from Europe and this is the stuffing they always made...they make the bread and then they break it into little pieces and cut up celery and onions and the liver from the turkey and they then pour the juice from the turkey into the pan that has the stuffing and it is slowly absorbed by the bread...the bird is not stuffed..we love this...it is delicious...thank you for the giveaway...

I would love to win your scraps! My favorite thanksgiving food is ... um, ALL of it! The broccoli rice casserole, the stuffing, the deep fried turkey my hubby makes, pecan pie (yum, yum). The food doesn't really matter - it's the fact that we're all together that matters. And I'm right with you, I love reading everyone's blog!

Looking forward to those scraps! My favorite dish is the pumpkin pie...shhh don't tell but I'm the one that always takes the piece of pie before dinner :)

Thank you for the blog and the giveaway. My favorite dish is the mashed potatoes of course

I love cranberries and fortunately we live near cranberry bogs so we by a tons fresh each year. I eat a ton of fresh cranberry sauce and my mother's amazing cranberry fudge. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

Being celiac, I've found the holidays to be a challenge in the past, until (dumda dahhh insert fanfare) sites such as epicurious.com came on the scene. You can type in "glutenfree" and then the dish, and it gives you several really good recipes. My 2 favs on turkey day have some from there. Pumpkin creme brule (super super easy) and kumquat cranberry sauce. The cranberry sauce is a bit more labor intensive with the prep on the kumquats, but THE best cranberry sauce recipe! Great question to ask for giveaway. I'll be reading all the comments too :)

I have to admit my very favorite Thanksgiving dish is dressing/stuffing. The real kind, not out of a box. It's about the only time I make it, but it sure is yummy! Thanks for the chance.

Yummy....fabric. Who thinks about food when fabric could be sneaking into your house? I would love scraps! I also love homemade peach jam on fresh from the oven rolls, but seriously fabric is much better!

dawnthompson said...

I love the pumpkin pie artfully decorated with whipped cream! And a hot cup of coffee, too. Thanks for the chance to win your scraps.

My favorite is an odd family tradition: scalloped oysters. It's a tradition my Grandma started, and has been a favorite with friends & family for 30+ years. Since she died, I have made it every year, and I always think of her.

Thanks for the giveaway! I was so happy to discover your blog.

Becky said...

I love scraps especially scraps from other quilters. Thanks for participating in this fun giveaway!

Deb said...

Sweet potato casserole that my daughter makes is to die for! We all LOVE it! This is my first visit to your blog and I've enjoyed looking around so much! I'm headed over to Quilty Giveaways now! Thanks for the chance.

Jessica said...

The home made rolls with lots of butter!

Pamela said...

Best thing to eat @ Thanksgiving? Cranberry-orange relish! I get out the old hand crank and it takes about an hour, but worth every second! Best about 2 days after you make it, so if made a day or so b/f the Thanksgiving meal, it's melt-in-your-mouth wonderful!

Thanks for the chance~

My favorite is Sweet potato casserole with lots of nuts on top.
Thanks for including me in your giveaway.

Isn't every Thanksgiving food delicious? How do you choose just one? Guess I would have to say it is the sausage and sage stuffing.
