  • s the weather turns cooler and we set our dining room table for a Thanksgiving feast, we are given the opportunity to pause and reflect on all we can be grateful for. The tradition of Thanksgiving, of course, is not a new idea, nor one that truly began at Plymouth with the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. Cultures around the world have celebrated their harvest annually when the fields were full and ripe for picking. The word harvest is actually from the Old English word hrfest, meaning autumn and the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon. At harvest festivals, ancient cultures took respite from the labor of the fields and gave thanks for their bountiful harvest by preparing large feasts to share and enjoy. Then, it was time to prepare for the long winter ahead when the fields lay barren for many long months. Todays Thanksgiving shares common threads with the harvest rituals of yore. We still enjoy taking a break from work to celebrate our good fortune and give thanks for all we have by gathering to feast with family and friends. And we can thank President Abraham Lincoln for making the day official, as he declared the final Thursday in November a national

    day of Thanksgiving. Congress made it an official day off from work in 1941 when turkey day became a true national holiday. An interesting side note: Congress also moved Thanksgiving back a week, in hopes of giving more oomph to the holiday shopping season. And would you believe shopping and our day of thanks are still inexplicably tied together? Modern-day Thanksgiving is linked with Black Friday, the day after feast day, and the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. This year, some stores are even staying open on Thanksgiving. Though most of us no longer work in the fields, we do live in a hectic, fast-paced digital world. Perhaps its now even more important to take the time to pause and remember to give thanks for our good fortune. This year, why not instill some new traditions at your Thanksgiving table? Perhaps ask each family member to tell what he or she is most grateful for before feasting on turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Or volunteer to work at a food bank on Thanksgiving to help others in need. After all, Thanksgiving should be centered on gratitude and giving rather than on football and bargain shopping.

    INGREDIENTSGRAHAM CRACKER CAKE2 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs1/2 c cake flour2 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp salt1 c unsalted butter, softened1 c packed light brown sugar3 egg yolks, room temperature2 tsp vanilla extracts1 c milk, lukewarm3 egg whites, room temperature

    SPICED PUMPKIN MOUSSE1 envelope gelatin 2 tbsp cold water15 oz can pumpkin puree (not pie filling)1 can condensed milk1/4 tsp salt1 tsp ground cinnamon1/2 tsp ground ginger1/4 tsp nutmeg and cloves1 2/3 c whipping cream

    GANACHE1 c heavy whipping cream1/3 c light corn syrup18 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped1 tbsp butter

    GRAHAM CRACKER CAKE DIRECTIONSPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9 inch round pans. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, cream the butter and the light brown sugar until fluffy. Slowly beat in the egg yolks, one at a time.

    Stir in the vanilla. Alternately add the milk and the crumb mixture while beating on low. Beat the egg whites in a bowl until foamy. Add the sugar slowly, and beat to soft peaks. Fold into the crumb batter, and pour into the pans. Bake for 25 minutes, then cool.

    SPICED PUMKIN MOUSE DIRECTIONSIn a small bowl sprinkle gelatin over cold water, stir and allow to soften. In a saucepan heat condensed milk, salt and pumpkin puree together until warmed through. Add softened gelatin and stir to combine until gelatin melts, stir in spices. Allow to cool to room temperature. Beat whipping cream in a mixer until soft peaks form. Add 1/3 of the whipped cream to your pumpkin mixture, stirring until combined. Gently fold in the remaining 2/3 of cream taking care not to stir or fold too, which will cause deflation.
