I should be coming up with some delightful Thanksgiving Day recipes for everyone to use, If I can think of any that might help I will post if I get a moment.
This year for Thanksgiving we are spending it with my husbands family. It is one of the consequences of being married, there is never enough of you to go around, and you can never see everyone on holidays. Subsequently one of us is left feeling a little empty by the end of the day. But we make the most of it and enjoy the time we do share with each other. If I had a large enough house it would be an easy fix, I'd cook the meal here and bring everyone together.
I am bringing the dessert coarse to the Thanksgiving day meal this year. On my list of things to make:
2-3 Pumpkin Pies
1 Pumpkin Cheesecake
1 Pecan Tart
1 batch Chocolate Tartlets
1 Cranberry-Apple Pie
1 batch Oatmeal Pumpkin cookies
1 loaf Cranberry Bread
I am beginning my baking marathon tomorrow with the cranberry bread and cookies. They are the easiest to prepare and can be made a day or two in advance. Wish me luck, not only will I have my own 3 kids in the house on Wednesday during my baking marathon, but I will have an additional 8 year old and 3 year old as well. However, I have hopes that they will actually all entertain each other to make my day easier.
