Morning folks! I hope those of you that celebrated had an amazing Thanksgiving! We celebrated ours as a trio, and I had forgotten how wonderful it was to cook alongside my partner in crime after not seeing him for months. Onions taste better when he chops them and pie crust transforms into flaky perfection when he manhandles it – fact! Our sous chef really stepped up his A game this year and was promptly paid in kisses and fed stuffing like a king.
File this one under “how to get a pony for Christmas“
That stuffing by the way? Life changing! I slacked on blogging the recipe but if you guys are interested I’ll try to post it before the next round of holiday shenanigans takes over. Pinterest is already absolutely inundated with gingerbread and peppermint but I’m still over here thinking about my mom’s veggie stuffing. Sah-woon.
Oh, duh! WIAW! I almost forgot!
Last week’s eats featured cookie cake for breakfast. This week? Apple pie a la mode! My explanation is simple: when you bake a hugh jass deep dish pie for 2.5 people you’re going to have leftovers. And of course when you have leftover dessert, you eat it for breakfast. It’s a thing.
I’d really like it to be a weekly thing, but I also really want to be able to button my jeans, which by some Thanksgiving miracle still seem to fit! #thankyouspandex
What I Ate Wednesday
apple pie [*ahem* fruit] with vanilla ice cream [it’s practically milk!]
3 cutie clementines
taco cups with enough toppings to qualify it as a salad… almost
turkey noodle soup [one of my favorite ways to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!] with a slice of jalapeno cheddar cornbread [recipe coming soon!]
