Welcome to week 4 of 7 in our Progressive Dinner Blog Hop. During week 1 I sent out a Progressive Dinner invitation. If you didn’t get a chance to see it you can check it out in my Progressive Dinner Invitation post where you can see the beautiful full color magazine our hostess Glenda from Busy at Home created to announce the big event. It will also give you a sneak peek into what you can expect for the upcoming weeks of our Progressive Dinner.

What is a Progressive Dinner?

So what is a Progressive Dinner you might be asking? Well for 7 weeks myself and four other bloggers will each be sharing one course of a holiday dinner menu from appetizers to dessert in a round up style post. 

By the end of the seven weeks each of us will have shared a Main course, 2 side dish recipes, an appetizer, a  dessert recipe and a pot luck or gift from the kitchen recipe.

Below you will find the schedule of the recipes I will be sharing for each week and what giveaway will be available that week. You will find my fellow Blog Hop Bloggers Roundup of Progressive Dinner recipes,  Ziplist  recipe and Rafflecopter giveaway form below at the bottom of each weekly post. 

Be sure to sign up for updates from Flour On My Face so you will know when a new Progressive Dinner post is live and follow Flour On My Face  on Pinterest to see what I’ve been pinning.

Progressive Dinner Vegetable Medley with a homemade cream sauce

Old Family Vegetable Recipe for Thanksgiving

My side dish recipe for this weeks Progressive Dinner Blog Hop is an old family recipe from when I was a child. My mother would make a cream sauce for our vegetable side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner every year. We would use it for homemade creamed corn, creamed green beans, homemade creamed spinach, and over brussels sprouts or on a mixed vegetable dish like this cauliflower, broccoli and carrot vegetable medley I am using this week for my Progressive Dinner side dish recipe

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
Instructions
  1. In a bowl cook vegetables per directions in the microwave.
  2. Drain in a colander while making cream sauce.
  3. Melt butter in a heavy bottomed sauce pan on medium heat.
  4. Add salt, pepper and flour.
  5. Make a rue by whisking until a thick paste forms, about 3-5 minutes.

Giveaway has ended.

Our giveaway is for a two piece Oval Baker Set from Rachael Rays Oven to Table Stoneware baking dish set. I love these baking dishes. You can bake in them and serve in them. They are safe from freezer to oven and are also microwave and dishwasher safe.

They are easy to handle with the built in handles. The set comes with a 1-1/4-Quart and 2-1/4-Quart stoneware bake dishes. They are the perfect size to make a large casserole and a side dish. Last week for my Progressive Dinner main dish I baked a 3 1/2 pound turkey breast in the 2 1/4 quart baker dish . You can easily bake a large chicken or a small turkey in it.

turkey breast, roasting, easy thanksgiving
