Ready to get your gobble on?


We're gearing up for turkey day here. As we all know, Aidan helped make placecards already, and yesterday I finished up sewing my cloth napkins, they're lovely if I do say so myself. And I do! :) quite proud of them, I am. What cloth napkins could be complete withough napkin rings, so last night Aidan helped make turkey napkin rings. They're pretty cute (pictures to come of the ringed napkins tomorrow, but for now I'll include on of me sewing the napkins) and the table will look fabu. Today we made 4 pies, 2 pumpkin (I love the smell of pumpkin pie baking in the oven, totally a comfort smell) and 2 oreo cream pies. The recipe for that is on this blog, go back in the archives to NOV '05. I had to make a change though, because we don't use cool whip anymore. We've cut out partially hydrogenated oils from out diet, and so that rules it out. I made whip cream myself instead. We're thrilled to be able to have these again, we haven't made them for over a year because the oreos had that kind of oil in it, but Oreo has seen the light and gotten rid of it, and we now can partake of the yummy oreo goodness again. On that same note, making the pumpkin pies took longer as well, for the same reason, every store bought crust I could find had it, so we made our own, that was interesting, lol. We'll see how they taste tomorrow.

This was just a quick update. Have a rocking turkey day everyone!
