To all my American friends and family, Happy Thanksgiving (Feliz Día de Gracias)!
This little Pilgrim-inspired creation was a make-n-take I got to create at the A Muse store when I visited Seattle 3 weeks ago. Wouldn't this design make a cute place setting card?
This week, I've already done some prep work for the Thanksgiving meal. Yesterday I picked up my already-cooked turkey from Boston Market. I hate handling raw meat, especially a large turkey. This is the second year where I've left the job of baking the turkey to the professionals.
I love the pumpkin pies from Costco, so I didn't bake my own. I thought I was smart by showing up right after they opened the store on Tuesday. Everyone one else had the same idea. Yikes, it was extremely busy! I had to park far away. I was glad to get out of there. I hate shopping, especially for food. I wish I had an assistant who could do all my shopping.
Last night, I made Pioneer Woman's mashed potato recipe. So good! Did you see Ree on Bobby Flay's Throwdown show last week? She beat him and these mashed potatoes are a big reason why. They have butter, cream cheese, and half & half. Awesome!
I also made a cranberry orange walnut relish from this recipe. I was going to make my mom's recipe, but I decided to try this new one. I like it when I sampled it.
Thanks for stopping by!
