What did you bake for Thanksgiving?
I took three pies, a batch of chocolate chip brownies ( Ian and Deb don’t like pie) and lots and lots of banana bread to my aunt’s house.
Crusts all ready for filling. Do I make my own crust? Honestly no. I really do not enjoy the pie crust experience, it rarely goes well for me. I gave up years ago. For me the whole point to a pie is the filling. I make a chocolate cream pie every year, it is always 100% gone. Me? I’d rather just have chocolate pudding.
I filled the crusts with #1, chocolate, #2 pecan #3 pumpkin.
All set on the porch just waiting for my ride, ready to go. I could have driven myself, but this way I could have a designated driver! And wine, lots of wine….
Have to satisfy both the real cream and the Cool Whip people.
Tortilla chips ( and other yummy snacks underneath) were for my niece to take back to college with her.
My aunt and mother both complained that I made too much banana bread. Is that even a thing? Too much banana bread? I don’t think so! I made it for people to take home with them, not for dessert. Zachary said he was going to make french toast with his the next morning. Yum!
