Happy Thanksgiving

Have a nice Thanksgiving, party people!

In the Foulard household today, we're baking pies and preparing. My mom may or may not be able to join us because it's been snowing like crazy this week, and it was snowing again this morning.

I'm making pumpkin pie, pecan pie, stuffing, and mashed rutabagas. Guy is making brined chicken breast. He was going to make turkey breast, but they were all out.

Edited to add: I forgot to mention, I made Parker House rolls last night too! They turned out really good. It's easy to make bread with a Kitchen-Aid dough hook, then you just need a lot of time to sit around and let it rise. Fast acting yeast is essential too, as it really cuts down on rising time.

  1. Hope you two had a great meal - can't imagine otherwise ;-D

    Had lemon coconut cake but no pies yesterday. Sigh. Not enough room for all.

    BTW, the turkey in your photo looks strikingly colorful. Nothing like the "meat" I had, LOL.
