Annyeong (-^O^-) haseyo!
Are you still feeling the aftershocks of turkey coma? What did you have to bring? Do you jump houses? How many members filled up the place?
I’m drinking peppermint tea while working on this post to help with my digestion. I have that full feeling from the oink fest of the past two days.
My paternal grandmother’s apartment hosted our modest kajok of seven adults, two kids, and one baby. There were a total of eight dishes and four desserts. My assignments were these:
Like my cheese platter? This is the first time I dolled it up with extras like the grapes, baguette, and other cheeses. I added in salami for my daddy.
I made Martha Stewart’s Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing. It was hella good! This recipe requires premade cornbread. Heck no techno did I buy it. I made it from scratch, baby! It’s something you’ve seen already – Barefoot Contessa’s Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. The first time I had made the cornbread, I only used two jalapenos with no seeds or ribs. There wasn’t any kick. So for Thanksgiving, I used three jalapenos, one and a half of them with seeds and ribs. I made sure too I put in two big handfuls of sharp, shredded cheddar. This cornbread made the stuffing.
And then the pumpkin pie. Kathy H. was so sweet to share her beloved family recipe. It was more traditional than the streusel one I had tried two weeks ago by using evaporated milk. I didn’t use a deep dish pie crust but I wasn’t feeling confident about the pie because I had poured a bit too much to the top which puffed up in the oven. I kept adding time as I was worried it wasn’t cooked all the way through. As you can see from the slice, it was pretty good, huh? I used the pumpkin pie spice mix rather than separate measurements of three spices so I wonder if the flavor was changed a bit?
I had to throw this pic in:
My niece and I were on the same wavelength and were twinsies! M is such a good, mellow baby. I loved how she let me carry her.
And now onto the fiber biz…
Saturday the hubb and I took the girls to Sutro Heights Park for Over the Chambray’s photo shoot:
Sadly, this was the first time I’ve ever been here. Our daughters had fun running amok and climbing anything they could.
It was a bit foggy by the ocean but the Spud & Chloe Outer kept me warm.
I’m not sure what will be the next project. I’m thinking an infinity scarf or fringed scarf since my neck pretty much needs to be kept cozy every day. My other option is Pink from Wendy Bernard’s Custom Knits.
Kamsa hamnida for stopping by today. The princesses and I are having some girl time at a joint playdate across the park. Hope your Sunday is lovely as mine.
Until our next chat, annyeong kaseyo!
