Happy Hump Day.
As promised, here are the recipes for the dishes that I made for our American Thanksgiving last weekend.
The Spiced Applesauce Cake from Smitten Kitchen is so amazing. I cannot stress the amazing part enough. It had super simple and non-fancy pants ingredients, it made our apartment smell wonderful for the whole day, it turned out really moist and delicious, and was light enough to eat more than one piece (or one really gigantic piece). I want to call it foolproof because it was so easy to make. Also, I have enough of each ingredient to make it again .. immediately. I plan on it. It was that good.
|This is their cake. Not mine. Mine looked similar, but not nearly as cute.|
The Brussels Sprouts Gratin from Cooking Light were also a hit. Most likely because they included quite a bit of bacon. Bacon and brusells sprouts together in a dish .. it’s a bit of a contradiction, huh? Oh well. I feel like when you’re having a deep fried turkey, you might as well throw calorie counting out the window. Vegetables don’t have to suck.
|Again, mine was not as pretty. I guess we can't win em' all.|
PS – It’s almost that time. Holiday countdown time. Hold on to your hats. I can’t wait.
