Happy Thanksgiving From The Salem Green Staff!
Saturday, November 16th, 2013
Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness. It is time for the warm and loving company of family and friends, and enjoying turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pies, and maybe some football. It is also a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things you have been blessed with. How are you celebrating this holiday?
These are some of the favorite Thanksgiving traditions for Salem Green staff
Julie: Spending time with my family and decorating.
Janelle: Watching holiday movies. My favorite is â€œItâ€™s a Wonderful Lifeâ€.
Brittney: Watching football with family and eating stuffing.
Steve: Hunting season has arrived!
Matt: Spending time with family and putting up the tree.
Val: The food, especially Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
- 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup honey
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
- Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9×13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Stir together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon and butter. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 squares.
