Thanksgiving is around the corner!

What are you going to do for Thanksgiving? Are you planning on helping your family make dinner? If not, why aren’t you? Are you afraid that what you make won’t taste good? There are tons of things you can make that are no fail and your family with thank you (especially those who do the cooking) for helping out.

Here are two NO FAIL recipes to try out!

COLE SLAW (all the words in parentheses are mine)
1/2 head green cabbage
1/2 head red cabbage
1 sm. red onion
2 carrots
1 bottle cole slaw dressing (or a couple of spoonfuls of mayonnaise)

1. Chop or shred cabbage into large bowl. Chop onion finely and grate carrots. (or even easier pick up a bag of coleslaw mix and a bag of shredded carrots at the store) Mix together in bowl.
2. Add dressing and mix to coat well. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
3. Stir before serving. Serves 6-8 people.

(In the past, I’ve also added things like: raisins, craisins, apples, grapes or walnuts. All yummy!)

Here are more easy Cole Slaw recipes from


2 cans pineapple chunks, drained
2 cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 jars maraschino, drained
1 can coconut flakes
1/2 bag mini marshmallows
4 oz. sour cream
16 oz. Cool Whip

Easey Peasey lemon squeezey! Make your family happy and be proud of a job well done!
