So this year I am taking the Cinnamon Butter Bundt Cake to my sister’s for breakfast. They’ll probably have donuts and such. Before THM I sometimes made Bubble Bread on Thanksgiving morning but this is definitely not THM.
I am considering a sausage breakfast dish too because I don’t do sweets only, very well. I like savory much better with a dash of sweet. Something like this Sausage Veggie Breakfast Burrito or this Sausage Rice Dish but with caulirice instead.
For dinner Mom and Dad will provide the ham, turkey, and side dishes. In times past, I’ve brought a variety of THM foods but this time I think I’m just going to bring some spelt rolls and enjoy the food available with a healthy dose of pleasure or vitamin P, as Pearl and Serene call it. I’ll probably ask if we can bake a few sweet potatoes plain because that is how Sean and Tiffany prefer them.
It’s dessert where I usually bring the most. I used to bring a couple pies and a couple cakes and ask for some pudding. But now I have learned the joys of pecan pie and love it. I make the one Kristie Sullivan created; it’s on youtube here.
I’ll make a standard sugar laden apple crumble pie for the other family members. I haven’t decided if I will make these pumpkin bars for Thanksgiving or the day after, when I make our turkey dinner here, because I love leftovers and turkeys are cheap meat this time of year.
I have yet to decide if I’m going to make a pudding. I usually prefer a light dessert on Thanksgiving because I used to eat so much mashed potatoes and ham noodles. But between the pie and the cake I think there will be enough dessert. Of course, there’ll be some ham and turkey leftover to snack on too.
Well, I’m looking forward to a fun day with family. I hope you will be able to spend the day with people you love too.
Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving,
