We had a great Turkey day today. Our second Thanksgiving day celebration in California was wonderful! Erica's parents, Steve and Lori invited us over to celebrate with them again this year. Micah's parents were also in town, so that was an added bonus! My marching orders for the day were to make an Apple and Pumpkin pie. I went a little overboard....
Yeah, that's right...4 pies... Can I just say I love baking? I find it to be a wonderful stress reliever. Erica took WAY better pictures of the pies individually and I'll post those once I get them from her, but just so you have an idea...
This was my first attempt at Chocolate Cream, and, I hate to pat myself of the back, but it was DELICIOUS!! I already copied the recipe onto a card for my recipe box. It's definitely a keeper! Here is a link to the recipe. If you feel brave, try it! You WON'T regret it! I didn't top it with meringue, though, I topped it with homemade whipped cream using this recipe. Then I topped it with semi-sweet chocolate shavings! I can't wait for Judah to go to bed, b/c Brent and I are having another slice tonight!!
Ok, so now for some non-pie pictures!! :-P
Wishing we could go for a swim...
