Happy thoughts of FOOD
Are you ready to eat???
2 days until Thanksgiving. Where has the rest of the year gone? I won't ask the trite question
"What are you thankful for in the past year"'. Seems everyone asks that. **rolls eyes**
I'm going to ask something a little different. [[ that's good, yes?]]
What are your absolutely favorite desserts and food to eat on Thanksgiving (notice dessert was listed first??? ) AND, if you are asked to bring something to the celebration, what would your food item be???
I'll go first.
I LOVE bread stuffing
, the dark meat of turkey,
butternut squash flavored with butter, brown sugar and a hint of nutmeg, and
baked sweet potatoes.
For desserts, I LOVE the pumpkin rolls that have creme cheese filling, apple pies with vanilla ice cream and chocolate cream pie.
For what to bring, this year, I'm bringing mashed white potatoes (for some reason, they didn't want the purple!!! ) ...and I was asked to bring my favorite easy thing to make, chocolate rice krispy treats...NOT made with messy marshmallow BTW - it is made in the microwave..and from start to finish, it takes 10 minutes total. What a great, quick chocolate fix! And they insisted I bring that this year. The question is, how much will be eaten before it even gets brought to where the celebration is to be held?
Only me and my tummy will know.. *grin*
So what about you?
What ever you do, eat, or go for this American Holiday,
I will be Thankful that you arrive safely, eat heartily , celebrate joyously and return home hale and happy.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!!!!
