Happy Turkey Day, lovelies! I hope everyone is spending it with the people that they love the most. I’m thankful for each and every one of you, keeping my blog going even though I’ve been so distant this month. Thanks for the continuous support through my training! This is my first Thanksgiving being away from home so I’m spending it cooking and cleaning. Since I’ve been MIA the past couple of weeks, I had four loads of laundry to do. Eight dollars in quarters. Eeeep!
I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast and will be cooking turkey stuffed with apples and cranberries, mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing, cornbread, and green beans for tonight. Cooking is truly a labor of love (my DB’s lucky I love him so much. Hah). Thank goodness I have Rihanna’s new CD “Talk That Talk” to keep me company in the kitchen. I’ve been waiting for this CD to come out for weeks.
For dessert, pumpkin is a must! Unfortunately my DB is not a fan of pumpkin, so I did all my pumpkin baking earlier and gave them out at coworkers/law school kids. Instead of making the usual pumpkin pie tonight, try out this cake! I baked it in a 9×13 pan instead of the two 8″ round pans, as recommended in the recipe from allrecipes. They’re fudgy, dense, and came out more like bars instead of cake. Have a delicious dinner tonight!
