We stayed in Edmonton for Thanksgiving this year, because Brad was on call, but luckily, he never got called out, and we just got to share a nice long weekend together as a family.
First off, Brad did Gracie's hair this morning... you can't really see it, but it was quite the ponytail. Anyway, Gracie and I made buns while Emma was napping.
When she woke up we had a feast! The smallest turkey I could find was 6.7 kgs, so we had a great supper, and now we have a freezer full of leftovers.
I took the turkey out of the roaster and Gracie said, "that's the biggest bird I've ever seen. It kind of looks like a monster."
It may have looked like a monster, but both kids ate like monsters so it was worth all the time spent in the kitchen.
Especially when Emma squealed, "Yay mom!" every time I brought something new to the table or gave her another helping of cranberries.
Like my Tupperware gravy boat?? Remind me to upgrade that one of these days...
The dessert? Sky-High Pumpkin Pie.
So good. Gingersnap crumb crust, pumpkin pie, meringue, and candied pecans.
I basically ate a 10" pie all by myself this week. I can't decide whether to put this recipe behind glass or burn it.
Hope you all got to enjoy the weekend.
