ACP North Texas Members,

This week we celebrate an American tradition by giving thanks for the blessings we have. This Thanksgiving takes place during a difficult time for many, as we are limited in our ability to spend time with loved ones and challenged by the hardships of a strained economy. Nevertheless, I give thanks to my family at home and my professional family. This includes all of our North Texas members, as you have contributed to the success achieved in my career. I appreciate the great presentations, post-meeting conversations, and sharing of lessons learned.

I’d like to share a few of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I’d like to say these were passed down from Tapia to Tapia over time, but I have no idea where they came from. All I know is that these are our go-to recipes, probably found online years ago when AOL 2.0 was a thing.

Command Center Cranberry Sauce

  • 6 ounces of cranberries in a saucepan
    1 cup sugar
    Orange or lemon zest
    2 tablespoons of water

Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes
Add 6 more ounces of cranberries to the saucepan and increase heat to medium
When cranberries burst 10 minutes later, reduce heat to low
Season to taste with sugar, salt, and pepper
Cool to room temperature

Secondary Scenario Sweet Potatoes

  • Peel and chop sweet potatoes
    Add to a sheet pan
    Add honey and cinnamon on top of sweet potatoes
    Add cinnamon, salt, and pepper
    Add extra virgin olive oil
    Roast at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until tender
