Turkey Day! We had a great time. It was so fun to have it at our house again. The turkey turned out juicy and moist. The rolls were light and fluffy. (We almost didn't have any because I made a huge mistake when I made them) Darlene (Scott's Mom) made the most wonderful yams. They were a huge hit. I want some right now. My Grandpa's sister was able to come. I haven't seen her since his funeral. She could only remember me as a little girl but she looks so much like him it felt like he was there with us.
This is a new recipe I tried. It's a chocolate-pecan-caramel cream pie. It was harder than I thought it would be. The custard layer took me three tries. It was pretty good though. Ash loved my razzleberry pie I made a little bit more. I think I need to teach her how to make it. I keep trying to teach the kids how to cook but it gets so frustrating. They don't seem to love it like I did at their age. My sister and I would try and see who could make the same dish the best. Maybe they need a little competition. The stuffing ended up wonderful even though I couldn't find the pecans. I think Ash threw them away when she was helping me clean up. It's probably a good thing since it forced me to abandon my idea of making pecan squares. I soooo didn't have time for that.
Sierra making her sad and her mad face. She loves the camera.
