Had a nice time with the grandson last night. Helped him with his wish list and had dinner at Cracker Barrel.
Today I have turkey #2 in the oven roasting to perfection or as near as I can get it. Turkey #1 was done yesterday. The husband and daughter pitch a royal fit if they don't get enough left-overs aka at least 3 days worth each so I usually cook 2 big birds. Guest it's a good thing I don't mind cooking. Anyway it saves on the drama! Every little bit counts with my family.
My pies came out okay. Pumpkin and Apple Pecan. I made 2 of each. One set for the daughter's house and 1 set for the husband. Aside from one slice of the pumpkin and a small taste test piece of the Apple Pecan they are all his. And he is more than welcome to the calories.
I must admit though I had a little trouble with the crumble topping as you can see on the Apple Pecan. They didn't turn out as pretty as I had hoped but they are yummy so I will consider it a success for my first attempt at that kind of pie.
I will be leaving shortly with full body armor attached
to head over to the daughter's place to celebrate Thanksgiving with her, the grandson, and her boyfriend Dan. Her best friend will join us after dinner to go see the Disney On Ice show. Praying for a peaceful drama-free day but most of all that my grandson has FUN! I love that little peanut!!
