A few months ago, I made my first real cheesecake, and it came out great! However, a whole cheesecake is a lot for just Matt and I. I still have a few pieces in the freezer. So I was anxious … Continue reading
Who went out shopping this morning for Black Friday? I have gone out the past few years really early but didn’t this year. I did go to Kohl’s this afternoon for a toy and walked right out. The line was wrapped all the way around the store. At 1:00 pm! I would rather spend the extra money and not spend over an hour in line.
Anyway, let’s recap Thanksgiving! This is the third year that we hosted and it was a success. Matt primarily does the cooking for the main meal, especially when it comes to the turkey. And although I may not cook the main meal, I search for the recipes that we will use. However, I do take care of the appetizer and desserts. My two favorite things to make.
For one of the vegetables, we had green beans. I saw a recipe for cheese sauce on an episode of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen on Food Network. Any vegetable tastes better with cheese!
And then of course, there is the dessert. I made Joy the Baker’s Pumpkin Cream Pie. Yum!!!
After we finished at our house, we headed to my aunt and uncle’s for more dessert. I made Averie Cooks’ loaded M&M oreo cookie bars to bring. My version has peanut butter oreos and peanut butter m&ms.
Choosing recipes for Thanksgiving, I looked for ones that are simple. There is no time for complicated or involved recipes on Thanksgiving because there is so much going on.
From the food to the company, it was a great day! Bring on Christmas now!!!
