Thanksgiving Prep Part 1

OK. I've got items 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 off the list. The nap was longer than I's kind of embarrassing how long I slept so we'll just move on. {sheepish grin}

Starting the yams for the Georgia Pudding

They look and smell great!

Lindsay came home from school ready to help with pie dough

One soon turned into 5. I LOVE my food processor!

Time to start the very traditional Cranberry Raspberry Jell-O salad. The first layer ingredients.

Time to start the Pumpkin Pie. Abbey came home just in time. This is one of her favorite things. Not so sure about the pumpkin. I'm wishing I'd have just bought Libbie's. I'm a sucker for a deal though.

Well that's the first bit. I've got a bunch more to go. Stay tuned. :)

I've had Santiam products before and they were fine. So the sanctity of the pumpkin pie should be unspoiled.
And i love seeing my sweet girls, home from school and helping out in the kitchen.

Lisa should be along shortly. I know she is excited to watch your progress.

Lisa said...

Love all the photos. love them.

Also, your mom trusted me with the Georgia Pudding this year! [slightly nervous about this great responsibility]. Any pointers for me?

Lisa said...

One more thing.....I love that first picture of the lady throwing the baking soda into the flames. Hilarious!

peel and slice the yams and roast them in a covered glass cake pan. Let them cook, covered, until they are very tender. Let them cool till just warm.

Oh thank you so much!!! Just two seconds ago when I copied and pasted the recipe into my computer I thought...Uhhhhh how do I cook the yams to begin with. So glad Lisa asked and you answered! I'm gonna go make me some Georgia Pudding!
