Just a week away and another Holiday of the year has come - Thanksgiving. To me and many others, this day should be one remembered throughout the year. Two words - thanks and giving. In the last ten months, how many said a prayer to almighty God thanking Him for family, food, friends, etc.? Even if it wasn't the best year for the weather we had, it could have been much worse. Do say a prayer of thanks before you eat your meal this Thanksgiving Day. Recipes today will be two that will be quick and easy to make for your Holiday meal; a vegetable salad and a fruit one. Vegetable Salad 2 cucumbers-peeled and sliced thin I bell green pepper, seeded, cut into thin pieces 1 medium onion, sliced thin Pieces of cauliflower, optional Salt and pepper to taste, Ranch Dressing, Bacon Bits Combine all vegetables together. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Gradually add the Ranch Dressing, mixing it into the vegetables making sure you do not get it soupy. Sprinkle the Bacon Bits on tip. Refrigerate a few minutes before serving. Fruit Salad 1 can orange pop 1 box (3 oz) orange jello Water" Fruit Dissolve jello in I cup hot water, when completely dissolved add 1 can of the orange pop. (A whole can is too much) Stir in fruit - green or red grapes, pieces of apple, bananas or whatever you like. **I have used Kool-Aid in place of the pop which is good too. Have a great and Blessed Thanksgiving.
