Tri-Moms: Kids Friendly Thanksgiving Crafts and Recipes

I have to admit, my favorite part of our Thanksgiving meal is not the turkey, not the mashed potatoes, and not even the pumpkin pie.

It's the carrot souffle! Seriously this is amazing. 

Of course, I may be somewhat bias since this is a Thanksgiving tradition in my family and it brings back lots of wonderful memories. 

But my kids love it, too (although they eat pretty much everything, so I'm not really sure that counts). 

I can also say that my husband will not object to a portion of this souffle, and he hates cooked carrots, so I think that's a pretty good sign that this recipe is tasty.

This souffle really shouldn't be served with the meal, because it is practically a dessert. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, but my mom (and I) always take it down to 1/3 cup. (If you're serving to cooked carrot skeptics you may want to keep a little more sugar.)

This recipe is also super easy and the kids (older ones at least) can even help mash the carrots.

Carrot Souffle
1 pound carrots (about 4 med-large) peeled, and cut into chunks
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup milk
2 heaping tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs slightly beaten
1 tsp baking powder

1. Cook carrots in boiling water, drain, and mash with fork.
2. Return mashed carrots to the pot and add the remaining ingredients. Beat for a few minutes
3. Pour into a buttered, medium-sized casserole dish (souffle dish or glass dish).
4. Bake at 350 degrees for about one hour. Souffle is finished when the middle is firm.

Enjoy! (Here are a few more carrot souffle recipes: Picadilly Carrot Souffle, Gingered Carrot Souffle, Savory Carrot Souffle, Mini Carrot Souffles.

I'm also super excited to get to do some Thanksgiving crafts with the kids this year. I think this will be the first year when at least some of them are old enough to actual do part of a craft on their own.

Since this is my first time attending the Thanksgiving craft rodeo I'm going to share some adorable ideas I've found around the web. Hopefully, they will inspire you to craft with your little ones this Thanksgiving, unless of course they include glitter, then I would suggest deleting them from your memory as quickly as possible (well, unless you want sparkly carpet). Check out all the other Thanksgiving Crafts and Ideas I've pinned.

That carrot souffle sounds similar to my sweet potato casserole recipe. I don't like sweet potatoes, but I love my casserole! Who can go wrong with butter and sugar?!
