Show Us Your Life---Thanksgiving Traditions and Recipes...

I must say that the biggest HIT at our Thanksgiving Dinner is not the's the dessert, specifically, Watergate Salad.

Here is the recipe:

1 (3.5-ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix

1 (8-ounce) can pineapple , drained

2/3 cup chopped pecans

1 1/3 cups miniature marshmallows

1 (8-ounce) container non-dairy whipped topping

Mix all together and pour into a decorative serving dish.
Chill well and serve cold.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

One of our biggest traditions is an oldie, but still a goodie. My sister and I always pull apart the turkey wishbone. Who ever gets the largest piece has good luck for the entire year!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Mmmmmmmm...this is one of my favorites and has been a tradition in our family too! When it comes to leftovers, I usually go for this salad before the pumpkin pie.
