And just like that Thanksgiving 2012 has come and gone. We kept it pretty low key, and I didn’t cook nearly as much as I did last year. It was still more than we needed but oh well. One of the best parts of the holiday weekend was that I was lazy as a lima bean. I took up residence on my corner of the couch with my blankie, phone, laptop and nook and chilled, big time. This was one of the few times in my life where I did that and didn’t feel one ounce of guilt. Yay me!!!
We don’t stray too far from our traditional Thanksgiving Turkey and Dressing with all the trimmings and of course there was dessert. This is where I had to have the most restraint. The newcomers to the sweet line up this year were the Frosted Tiered Chocolate Cake and Mini Sweet Potato Cupcakes. Along with those I made Apple Cobbler, Sweet Potato Pie, Sweet Potato Pone, which is basically Sweet Potato Pie without the crust. Charisse doesn’t like the crust so baby girl must have her Pone. I also made Mini Buttermilk Pound Cakes that were baked in my jumbo muffin pan. So check out the pics and I’ll post the Chocolate Cake, Apple Cobbler and Mini Sweet Potato Cupcakes in a few days.
