Post Turkey Day Wrap-Up

Pumpkin and Pecan Pies

Pumpkin and Pecan Pies

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it.  I took some time off so I would not lose my mind. 

The two days prior to Turkey Day I spent making all my make aheadable side dishes.  I marinated and wrapped the green beans in bacon, I made the sweet potatoes, baked the cheesecake, made croissant dough, baked Pecan and Pumpkin pies, and whipped cream cheese with herbs. 

The day of I woke at 6am.  After letting the dogs out to do their doggy business I set to work.  I made cheddar cheese gougeres, potato pancakes for smoked salmon, I baked rolls and croissants, and baked off the apple tart.  I managed to get to my mom’s house at 11:30 … a testament to my time management skills!

Dinner was delish and I have pics of the desserts to add to the gallery soon.  Maybe as early as tonight.

Tonight, it is left-over turkey chili.  Mmmmm.

So, now we get ready for Christmas.  I have the house all decorated and I will begin my cookie bake-a-thon this week.

Oh, and Nigella has updated her website.  Check it out!!  It rocks my evil socks!!
