Oh my gosh! Almost forgot to blog!

Because I was too busy packing and cooking for Thanksgiving!!

My kid watched about 11 hours of TV today (which is why I took no pictures-- no need to memorialize that. Oh, wait.) while I made a chocolate cherry cheesecake, a spiced pumpkin cake, a million pumpkin muffins, and a green bean casserole. Last year, I made a green bean casserole entirely from scratch (no cans! made my own cream of mushroom even!) , and the only thing that was at all remarkable about it was that it tasted exactly like the canned version. This year, I bought all the ingredients for a semi-fresh/semi-canned casserole on a Trader Joe's end cap, so we'll see. Maybe next year, it'll be Green Giant and Campbell's all the way.

In the bathtub tonight, Ben asked Harry what he was thankful for, and Harry said, "My family." Total parenting WIN (so maybe it makes up for the TV FAIL?)

Happy Thanksgiving-- I hope you have safe travels and eat yourself silly.


  1. Consider my heart officially melted. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. Your house must smell amazing!! We're doing all our baking tomorrow. Love Harry's thankfulness. What a sweetheart!

  3. the amount of tv my kids have watched while I've been working on this book is embarrassing.

    Happy thanksgiving!
