Happy Monday, y’all!
I’m joining some friends for a fun blog hop today and I’m so excited to see what the other gals are blogging about today! We all had fun thinking of simple ways to dress up a store-bought food item so that it would look beautiful and homemade.
If you’re coming over from Kelley Nan’s blog– welcome! I put a little twist on store-bought cranberry sauce. It’s something my mom did when I was younger, and I hope you’ll get a kick out of it, too!
All you do is start with a couple of cans of whole berry cranberry sauce. I got mine from Publix.
It will come out of the can congealed, so dump it in a bowl and break it up a bit with a fork…
Last but not least, halve a few oranges (depending on the number of guests you’ll be serving) and use a paring knife and spoon to carve them out to create little bowls.
My mom usually made juice with the oranges themselves so they didn’t go to waste, and there really isn’t anything like fresh squeezed so I highly recommend it! 🙂
Top with mint leaves for an extra little flourish of color and voilà!
We’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving with Kevin’s side of the family this year, but Steevenson turns six on the 23rd, so we’ll definitely be breaking bread (and maybe berries- ha!) to celebrate his life first! 😀
