It's all about the Relish

Happy Thanksgiving to all...

Went in another direction with the sides this year and boy am I glad I did. It's always nice to try new recipes for group get together's. This year we spent Thanksgiving with some fellow RVers at Village Creek State Park in Lumberton TX. Our good friends Judy and Dick Mott, Janice and Dave Evans and April and Mike Mott. The Mott's are from Louisiana and they are awesome Cajun cooks with fabulous recipes. Mike made this scrumptious Cajun dressing that had shrimp in it... WOW was it good. Sorry kids this recipe is highly guarded by their family so I can't share it. We will be meeting up with them for New Years and I sure hope he makes that again, it went very well with my Ninja baked Turkey. Yep I'm starting to get hungry... LOL
This year I tried a new recipe called Raspberry Pomegranate Relish.... It was a great hit and I will be making it again for Christmas and New Years. In fact I'm making it today. Can't wait to taste it again.
The day after Thanksgiving we had to take our little Chi, who broke her leg a few weeks ago jumping off the couch, back to Conroe to have her cast redone because it slipped down. Then 2 days later we had to take her back again because the cast came completely off . ugh! Everyone else was meeting up for lunch the next day so I sent the relish for them to enjoy, hoping we would be back in time to eat with them. But no it took all day to make the 186 mile round trip... Since we only got a wee bit of this luscious concoction, that's the reason I'm making it today. Yep,that's just how good this stuff is. Hope you like it as much as we did....
