I think I’m in denial. What you say that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK!?!?!? Seriously, where has the year gone. I can’t believe that next week around this time we will all be sitting down around our Thanksgiving table.

Walmart’s Meal Solution: Thanksgiving Sides
prices may vary where you live
When it comes to our Thanksgiving table we usually stick with the classics. It is usually the same menu every year with the exception of one or two new dishes that we just have to try. I don’t mind having the same menu every year. I like knowing what to expect. Since we usually only make these dishes once a year, I like knowing what I should be looking forward to. On the topic of only making these dishes once a year. What is up with that? Green bean casserole is incredibly easy to make yet we only enjoy it once a year? I think green bean casserole should be made more often. I’m going to try to remember to add it into our monthly menu’s more often. For those that are wondering, I like to stick to Campbell’s version of the classic Green Bean Casserole. I love the flavor and the splash of soy sauce added in.
Again with the sweet potato casserole and that ooey gooey marshmallow topping. Why do we make this only once a year? When sweet potatoes are in season I should definitely be adding this to our meal plan. It would be nice to have a sweet potato casserole every once in a while. Paired with a roast chicken dish, perhaps? Speaking of sweet potatoes, do you prefer sweet potatoes or yams? Personally I love those frozen round yam patties but often have a hard time finding them. How about you? Sweet Potatoes or Yams? How do you like them cooked?
My family won’t let me touch the Cranberry sauce. They like it just the way it is, with the can lines and everything ^_^ .
I remembered seeing the Betty Crocker Pumpkin Cookies in my store the other day but when I went back to pick up a pack there were no more in stock. Maybe it is a popular item, but nonetheless they sounded absolutely mouthwatering. So since the pumpkin cookies weren’t available I decided to whip up another dessert for this week. Below you will find the recipe which is super simple to make:
Butter Pecan Ice Box Cake with Pumpkin Cheesecake Topping
for some reason I’m on a Butter Pecan kick as of late, maybe it’s just that time of year with the holidays and everything. In case you missed, I recently posted a recipe for Holiday Butter Pecan Cookies that would make great homemade gifts!!!
- 1 Betty Crocker Butter Pecan Cake mix
- 2 cups Whipped Topping
- 1 cup Philadelphia Ready to Eat Cheesecake Filling, Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Make Butter Pecan Cake according to package directions and place in greased 13×9 baking dish. Bake according to directions on package.
- Once your cake is baked and cooled, now it’s time to make the Pumpkin Cheesecake Topping. In a bowl fold together 1 cup of the Philadelphia Ready to Eat Cheesecake Filling in the Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice flavor with 2 cups of whipped topping. If you can’t find the Ready to Eat Cheesecake Filling in the Pumpkin Spice flavor you could also use the regular cheesecake filling and add a dash of pumpkin spice mix to taste.
- After the two topping ingredients are well blended spread on top of cooled cake. Cover and place in refrigerator. This cake is supposed to be served cold.
What sides does your family typically have at Thanksgiving?
