All week the WCCO Morning Show is sharing its favorite family recipes in time for your Thanksgiving. Today we’re talking stuffing. Jason DeRusha’s mom does it one way, but his mother-in-law has a pretty big twist.
You’ve slept off the turkey, you’re not interested in battling crowds on Black Friday, but you have free time and possibly family and friends to entertain. What is there to do this weekend? Plenty. Here is just a sampling of events taking place around the state in the days after Thanksgiving.
Here are recipes for a few family favorites for Thanksgiving from the WCCO Morning Show’s Jamie Yuccas.
For the first time in a long time, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day – Thursday, Nov. 28. The new holiday is being called “Thanksgivukkah.” Like most big holidays, this new one means lots of time will be spent in the kitchen. Tracy Truesdell is Jewish, but her husband isn’t. So, their family is used to getting creative when celebrating with their boys.
After the turkey and stuffing have been gobbled up, take the kids to burn some energy over the long Thanksgiving weekend. Entertain them (and tire them out) at one of these Minnesota favorites.
The season of giving is upon us, and some Lakeville schools recently got a lesson in giving back. On Monday, schools across the district received an anonymous gift in the mail: a $100 Cub Foods gift card. The only instruction was to forward it to a family in need.

Next week, some lucky Minnesota turkeys will be heading to the White House. John Burkel of Badger in Northern Minnesota raised the birds. He’s going to pick two of them to send to President Obama, to be pardoned the day before Thanksgiving.
