Are you in charge of the veggie tray this Thanksgiving…. how about making it SUPER fun and turning it into a turkey.  All you need to do is cut the end off your bell pepper to make the turkey head.  Cut some olive slices for the eyes and a carrot for the beak, and you have  your turkey head. Line all the other veggies up to look like feathers and your done.  It does not have to be perfect… lets face it we are not all “pinterest divas” my 10 year old made the one above and I think she did a great job!

Stuffed Pork Chop Loaf, easy dinner ideas for your family, pork recipes for dinner, Bacon stuffing and pork chops

Stuffed Pork Chop Loaf ~ Only 3 ingredients

I have shared with you before one of our favorite family recipes stuffed pork tenderloin, but as you can see in the photo below getting the loin cut flat in a nice filet, then getting all the stuffing inside can be a bit of a challenge if you are not skilled with a kitchen knife.  So I decided I would try something new.  Same basic recipe but much easier to put together…. and that is how I came up with the Stuffed Pork Chop Loaf.

stuffed pork tenderloin

All you need to make this recipe is:

  • 10 strips of bacon
  • Box of Stove Top Stuffing prepared according to package directions
  • 8 thin cut pork chops
  • Meat Loaf Pan

Start by lining the bottom of the pan with your strips of bacon. Leave a long enough “tail” to loop over the top and cover the top. Next put a scoop of stuffing in the middle of a pork chop and start to stack it in the loaf pan. Sandwich the stuffing between the chops. Once you get  them all stuffed, wrap the bacon over the top and tuck it into the side. It is important to use thin cut pork chops so the meat can cook evenly.  Oven temp will vary and so will cooking time, I thought mine would take about 45 minutes to cook but ended up taking about 60 minutes to make sure the middle was done all the way. I also use a meat thermometer  to make sure my meat is cooked. Pork should have an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit before you eat it.

Turkey Bites, Fun DIY crafts for kids. Thanksgiving recipes for kids, perfect for school parties

 Turkey Bites ~ Fun DIY Thanksgiving Treats For Kids

My girls made these last year with their Granny, as a special treat for Thanksgiving. After all, not all kids get excited about pumpkin pie, but these silly little turkey’s sure made them smile.  They are easy to make and you can make them a few days before the party if you need to, which is nice for busy schedules.

To make these you will need:

Bag of pretzels (not the mini and not the large…just the standard size)

Bag of candy corn (if you have a hard time finding them, look for them in the bulk food at WinCo)

Wilton Eyes (found online or at most craft stores)

Bag of M&M’s

Bag of Hershey’s Kisses (unwrapped)

Lay the pretzels on a baking sheet, place one chocolate kiss on each pretzel. Put into the oven at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes… just until they get shiny. They will not look like they are melted, but if you touch them they are soft. Take out of the oven and quickly begin to assemble your turkeys.  Start by putting three candy corn on the top to look like feathers. Next place two eyes in the middle and right below that  place an M&M on its side for a mouth.  Allow to fully cool (about an hour) before you move them. Store in an airtight container, enjoy!

DIY Homemade Oreo Recipe from a cake mix, quick and easy recipe that your family will love #Oreos, #Recipe, #CakeMixHomemade Oreos, Made With a Cake Mix

This is a family favorite recipe that I had forgotten about!  So easy and quick, they are perfect when you want to bake something but don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen all day, (unlike sugar cookies!)  These are super moist and the perfect texture!

Recipe:

2 boxes devils food cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup shortening

homemade oreos, #snacks, #oreos, #knockoffrecipes, #easysnacks,#cakemix, #cookies, #easyrecipes, #easycookies
Mix together and put on an ungreased cookie sheet in walnut sized balls. Batter is very thick, you can pick it up and roll it into balls.

 Once cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting and put 2 cookies together.

Store in an airtight container.  I usually get 3 1/2 pans with 24 cookies on them.  But remember, each cookie will need 2 of those.
