I run a little side pie business during Thanksgiving, so the month of November slips away very quickly. As usual, it’s almost Christmas and I just realized I never posted my Thanksgiving photos…
Here’s my veggie plate.
Our family felt the need to use every Crockpot in the house this year…I’m still not sure why? I think we had almost every decade represented.
Dessert- pumpkin buttermilk, pecan, and Grandma wanted Banana Cream pie, so of course she got it.
And there was the annual 2 gal talent show, which Lynley probably already blogged about. It was the best pie I experienced all Thanksgiving and my first pie in the face ever. Thanks for being such a great sis, sis.
halloween is my favorite holiday so i got super excited about making a fall meal. on sunday the whether was wonderful and fallish and i got to do one my favorite things….cook all day. i once again busted out my crockpot, which i swear i’m on the verge of writing a love haiku poem too. this meal is an excellent fall dish. in the crock you got chicken, cream of mushroom soup, and a box of cornbread stuffing, topped with peas. its sort of creates a meal that starts off feeling like leftovers, how everything begins all mushed up together.
oh how i love you so
to go along with it i made up some rosemary biscuits. biscuits are one of the easiest things to bake and you can transform them into such a variety of flavors by just adding a teaspoon of your favorite herbs. i like rosemary but oregano, parsley, thyme, and many others work just as well too.
give me them biscuits!
when making a batch of leftovers in a pot you got to have mashed potatoes. do you know the difference between dirty tators and mashed potatoes? there is a big one and i personal prefer dirty tators. dirty tators are when you leave the skins on the potatoes, leaving them extra chunky and colorful when they get mashed. and since it is october i celebrated with an o’fallon pumpkin beer in a frosted mug.
i got so excited for a real fall meal, i ate WAY too much
to make this even more perfect i watched my favorite halloween movie of all time, arsenic and old lace. cary grant discovers that his 2 elderly aunts have been poisoning old lonely men they lure into their home with a room for rent advertisement, they think they are providing charity by putting them out of their misery. the family is all batty including a serial killer brother and another brother that thinks he is teddy roosevelt. minus the killing of elderly men i could see steph and i becoming just like the brewster sisters.
