Happy Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving I carved a Turk-O-Lantern to bring with us to Carole's house. It looks cool in a dark room, but I took these pictures this morning so you'll have to use your imagination!

There was an incredible variety of delicious food, everyone brought their favorite dishes to share. In years past I've brought lumpia, home made bread, pies, cookies, roasted veggies -- you name it. This year my contributions were solely to the dessert table. You're looking at a date custard pie that tasted just like Grammy's. (I'm a braggart for saying this - same taste, better texture - because I baked it in a water bath. Forgive me Grammy!) Silky, rich heart attack special - packing 6 eggs and 3 cups of half & half. Soooooo delicious.
When is the last time you had peanut butter fudge?
This was creamy, peanut buttery chunks of decadence. Triple gingerbread cake that I made in a fancy pan
instead of my usual 9x9 square.
We served it warm with fresh whipped cream... mmm... mmm... good.

The entire dinner menu was incredible. To give you an idea, here's just the desserts: chocolate trifle, decorated sugar cookies, apple pie w/ice cream, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, candied nuts, medjool dates, fruits, and what we brought. Crazy. Delicious.

Nope. However, if you feel strongly about it, I might be persuaded to make some for Christmas. Perhaps...
