Keeping the “thanks” in Thanksgiving
Happy thanksgiving from staff at Delco Alarm Systems. As you gather around the table this year to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving feast, take time to remember all of that for which you are thankful.
Perhaps there is a new baby in the family. Someone earned a big promotion. Or perhaps that your extended family is able to gather together after two years apart. Don’t forget to celebrate the little things as well. The first snowflakes, a beautiful sunrise or a cup of hot cocoa by the fire are also reasons to be grateful. The folks at Delco Alarm Systems have told us some of what they are thankful for this year. Topping the list, as usual, are the winning Philadelphia Eagles…not to mention the success of the Philadelphia Union and Phillies. Our families and friends also are at the top of the list, along with watching our children and grandchildren as they grow
Every family has their own Thanksgiving traditions. While the food and activities may differ, sharing the day with friends and loved ones is a great reason to be thankful. We would be remiss if we didn’t admit that good food is something to look forward to. Delco Alarm Systems would like to share links to some of the time-tested Thanksgiving recipes our families have enjoyed. Be assured, you won’t be disappointed.
Emeril’s pecan pie is, in our opinion, the best! Top with whipped cream and you’re good to go.
We also learned a turkey hack from Martha Stewart, who cooks a whole turkey in a fraction of the time of a roasted bird, keeping it from drying out. How to spatchcock a turkey:
Cranberry sauce is one of our easiest Thanksgiving favorites. It’s actually a relish, sweet and tangy. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it.
1 16 ounce package of cranberries
1 cup of sugar
Wash the fruit, pick through the cranberries. Cut the orange in several pieces then Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until chopped. Pour into a bowl, Cover then refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Enjoy!
