NOBODY - I hope!
If you're a Disney obsessed, crazy, maniacal weirdo like I admit I am, you won't anyway.
Well, regardless... what does this have to do with food? Oh lots! For the past month you've been hearing me talk about my pumpkin, "Princess Aleesa". She's a fairytale pumpkin. She tried to straighten up Clyde, she hung out with a recluse for a while.. and now she's perched atop a table in my house, looking beautiful as ever. But I know that someday Aleesa will rot.. so I wanted to do something FABULOUS with her, and what, praytel, is more fabulous than a pumpkin pie?? (Especially for Thanksgiving dinner)
--NOTHING! -- unless you want to talk about the 'bluebirds of love -bird seed' rolls I'm making too. But we'll get to that.
It's going to hurt my heart a bit to cut into Aleesa, but I have had experience with Clyde and I do believe I know what I'm doing. I'm planning to make a pie-crust from scratch, and mom bought me a beautiful new glass pie plate to place this pie in. I'm about certain that I'll have plenty of pumpkin left over.. of which I may make another pie with and freeze it. OR - maybe I'll see how she tastes in pumpkin muffins? Either way.. my thought is set. I have everything I need waiting for me; I plan to work on Aleesa tomorrow afternoon (yes, while I'm doing work/work, watching The Bold and The Beautiful, AND doing laundry) I'm so talented. I also have to do a sport specific kundalini at some point tomorrow. My sister and I will be doing the Thanksgiving Day Race - which takes place downtown. It's a 10k. We'll need to be on the ball.
So, to add on to the fairy tale theme... what will I be doing while Aleesa is baking into a gorgeous pie? Making Blue Birds of love - birdseed rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner. (Yeah you're all - wtheck?)
|oh we'll make a lovely dress for Cinderelly!|
Remember those lovebirds from Cinderella? How can you forget? They perched on her hand, sung with her.. heck, they helped Gus and Jack make a dress for her to wear to the ball (Of which Anastasia and Drizella promptly ripped off of her later). Regardless, I knew mom would make some sort of white based roll with egg and butter in it for Thanksgiving.. so instead - I'm going to charm the socks off of everyone with my bird-seed rolls. Millet, sunflower, a few other seedly grains.. will make my rolls sure-fire hits. I'm certainly excited.

Ok then.. I don't have a whole lot of time to get this show on the road.. so let's sing a little song shall we, while we get this ready? About dreams and wishes coming true?! I sure have a couple I'd like to have come true soon.
