1 more day!
After quite the adventure, Melissa, her husband and their 2 friends, finally arrived last night. The heavy rain and holiday traffic caused their bus to show up 2 hours late, leaving them to wait outside in the freezing rain with hundreds of people. We hope your holiday guests aren’t having similar issues!
We finally made the Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Pie! Additionally we made 2 batches of our Pecan Tassies, but of course as soon as the kids came home, they ate about 10 of them!
Today we’ll be making the floral centerpiece. Since we made the crusts for the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pie and a Lemon Meringue Pie, we will be baking them as well.
Dave’s sister Carol has been staying over the past couple of days and has been a big help. She’ll be making her traditional Sugar-Free Trifle today, for those with diabetes and the diet conscious. Perhaps, we’ll have to have her give up the recipe and share it with you!
Finally, we’ll be making our smoky salmon ball tonight.
Believe it or not, this year we will be having the least amount of guests for Thanksgiving in years. Typically we have around 20 guests. But this year we’ll only have 12. We had to downsize this year because we have been building an addition to our outside porch. So, with all of the construction, we just couldn’t have that many guests over this year.
Tomorrow’s main cooking event begins at 6:00 AM to start smoking the bird! What time will you be starting?
All the best,
-The Dads: Harris & Dave
Our Pecan Tassies that we made last night!
