We are up. We are ready. Oven on. Aprons on. Food to cook!
Today we are making the following. I will post recipes later of all things not already on here.
- Deviled Eggs - I have a secret ingredient even kids love
- Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake with chocolate crust - Xander's first attempt at making a cheesecake. I am excited!
- Corn Casserole - it is not Thanksgiving without this on the table!
- Homemade Whipped Cream - this year Christian gets involved and takes over this responsibility! Makes my heart go pitter patter. I remember when Xander was his age and it was his job. Traditions are the best and my family is full of traditionalists!
A funny.... on Monday when I was deciding what pies to make. I thought I would try a "new" pumpkin pie recipe I had seen somewhere and was telling Mac and Moose about it. Before I could finish explaining it, the Moose looked at me and said, "mom, can you just make the 'traditional' pumpkin pie?". I asked him why and he said that it was because it was his favorite and if I wanted to, I could make BOTH pies but he needed the traditional one, lololol. I had to laugh. He's only 6 and he's a boy who knows what he wants!
So into the kitchen I go. I'll be back later to post the recipes and if all goes well, photos too!
