Looking for a quick way to make your guests smile this Thanksgiving? Turkey tinfoil to-go bags will do the trick! They are really easy to make and will turn leftovers into a fun present to take home.
Here’s how to make the turkey tinfoil to-go bags: Place your leftovers in the middle of a piece of tinfoil and fold over the top on both sides. Pinch one end of the tinfoil and shape up to form the beak – then pinch in the other end and fan the tinfoil out and make a few cuts down to mimic turkey feathers. Stick pretty feathers in the bottom and present to your guests with a smile.
Although offering leftovers is a great way to ensure guests don’t over eat during the Thanksgiving feast. another way is by offering lightened-up version of your favorite rich foods. I am glad to be partnering with Truvia® Baking Blend today to share this recipe for lightened-up pumpkin pie. It’s a favorite around our house and it’ll save your guests some calories without sacrificing the indulgence of the day.
To make the pumpkin pie:
- Preheat oven to 400° F.
- Prepare your desired pastry crust.
