Our early household Thanksgiving was yesterday. Nico and I baked all day. She made a rather clever cornucopia out of just canned breadsticks and foil. I made lemon-cranberry sauce from scratch (did you know cranberries have about a zillion teensy seeds in them???) that was very tasty. Together we made little cornish hens. Very cute. And not nearly cooked all the way when cut into. Doh! We had so many delicious dishes that we hardly noticed it was a vegetarian Thanksgiving though. Besides my all time favorite green bean casserole with cheddar fried onions, we had my new favorite as well- a side dish from the Honeybaked Ham Co. called Sweet Potato Souffle. It is truly to die for- and I hate sweet potatoes!!!
As soon as Darrell arrives home from work we are heading out to his parents’ house for a nice 6 day vacation. I can’t wait! I was promised a Gingerbread Frappuccino from Starbucks to help keep me awake! Woo Hoo!
