So, I'm sitting here - injured. I need to stop doing these races. It seems something happens to me each time. This time, my foot is messed up. I sit here alternating cold and hot.. it HURTS.. I hobble to get myself food or just to get up because I hate sitting here doing nothing. I wish I had someone to take care of me. Oh sigh. Or- maybe some really heavy drugs.
Aside from that, let's discuss what I brought for the family Thanksgiving day dinner. This one was a bit different.. kinda quiet. But we did have two visitors that we've never had before.. who I think both tried my green bean casserole from Sunday. ;)
As far as what I made this time.. the pumpkin pie and rolls.. it was mom, myself and my sister.. my mom even told me that my pie rivaled my grandma's. That's a HUGE compliment. :)
Lets' start with the pie. Remember Aleesa? Well there's one last look at her before she
She was alot easier to cut open than Clyde was. It could be because I pulled Clyde out from the stair step outside, so he was cold. Aleesa has been in a warm house for a month so that might be what made her a bit easier.. but I cut into her.. and she smelled so lovely. I split her in two and started baking her skin up so that it would be just the right softness to scoop her her out..
I'd decided pretty much at the last minute that I was going to make this pie, crustless.. so that made it a little more challenging, but I think I did pretty good. It was yummy, custardy and spicy all at the same time. The best thing? I've never been able to make a pumpkin pie w/o tofu before and make it creamy like this.. but this one - COMPLETELY soy free. (Pats myself on the back). This was an awesome pie. Maybe it's because Aleesa was loved, and her pie was made with love. You should be jealous if you didn't get any. MmmMm.
So, on the waiting side, I was also making bread to make into rolls.
Ok, well right now I'm feeling pretty boring so this blog post isn't funny or interesting. I'm tired, I'm achy, I'm a lil sad.. and I just feel like laying down now. Hopefully I'll get my spark back for the next post. Because what I've got coming up next is just about one of the most fun recipes I think I'll ever plan on trying! :)
I'm off to watch this blockhead on TV.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I would post a picture of my sister and I at the run yesterday but all I have is a pic of the neiceage's math teacher, a pic of my moms face and a pic of Miranda's face... and since that's about as talented as my neice got with the camera yesterday - I'll spare you.
Til next week all.
Enjoy your weekend!
