I hope you guys had a fantastic Thanksgiving day with your family and friends! We had so much food as usual and now we’re going to be eating leftovers for days to come. So I thought we could have a little fun with our leftovers.

Omg! There’s just two more days until Thanksgiving, and I feel like there’s still so much to do. I went grocery shopping over the weekend to try to avoid the crowds and ridiculously long lines, but it was unavoidable. Plus, some of the ingredients I’m looking for are already out of stock. So even though I tried to get ahead with my shopping list, I have no choice but to go back out there and pick up a few more items.
A double crusted pie filled with sweet pears and caramelized honey. This delicious honey pear pie embodies the warm flavors of fall.
This pie <3
I’ve been thinking about this pie for awhile now. For many different reasons.
When most of us think about fall desserts, our first thoughts are of pumpkin and apples and even cranberries. Pears seem to be forgotten. And it seems like such a shame, especially since pears have the most amazing flavors and texture when baked.
For this pie, I wanted to keep it simple so that the flavor of pear can stand out on its own. I love the crispness of fresh pears baked in a buttery crust, the caramelized honey bubbling through the weave of the lattice top, the crunch of the coarse sugar sprinkled on top of the crust. What is there not to love?
My sister and I went to the Museum of Ice Cream the other day. We were both so excited since we heard so much about it prior to going. As fun as it was, I kind of expected more from it. Probably because of all the hype.
But here are some photos from the Museum of Ice Cream. We got to try different types of ice cream and got a brain freeze. I think my favorite was the sprinkle pool. I found sprinkles in my pockets, socks, and everywhere possible.
Less than a week left until Thanksgiving, and there’s still so much planning to do. It just really hit me yesterday that Thanksgiving is next week. That means I’m going to have to start shopping for ingredients because I promised myself I’m going to try to stay ahead this year. I don’t want to have to run to the local supermarket for that one ingredient that I’m missing, which seems to happen every year. Somehow we always end up waiting in a super long line for that one ingredient we forgot.
I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes in case you still need ideas. =)
Steel cut oatmeal cooked with pumpkin puree and sweetened with maple syrup. This creamy pumpkin maple steel cut oatmeal is the perfect fall breakfast.
You guys! Only another week and a half until Thanksgiving. I’m part excited, part sad, and part not ready! I’m always saying that time goes by too fast, but November goes by extra fast. I sometimes wish I had more time or at the very least, find a way to slow down time so that I can savor the short fall season just a little longer.
This week, one of my sisters and I are going to the Museum of Ice Cream! I am ridiculously excited for it. It was so difficult to get tickets. And I hope that I won’t be disappointed by all the hype that has been surrounding this event. Has anyone been?
Green beans, or haricot vert, in a creamy mushroom bacon sauce topped with crispy fried onions. This creamy green bean casserole with bacon and mushrooms is delicious and perfect as a side.
You guys, just two more weeks until Thanksgiving! Seriously, can you believe it? Time seems to move so fast once we hit November.
Since we’re nearing the big day, we’re going to keep talking about Thanksgiving dishes. Like this classic green bean casserole. I have to say that it’s my favorite Thanksgiving side this year! I may, or may not, have been eating this dish since late summer….
Brussels sprouts tossed with creole seasoning then roasted with bacon and garlic. These roasted garlic brussels sprouts with bacon are soo delicious and perfect as a side.
I’m soo excited that Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
I’ve been planning our Thanksgiving menu for awhile now. Nothing official. Just throwing out ideas so we can figure out a list of things to buy when it gets closer. That way when we do the actual cooking on Thanksgiving Day, we won’t have to run out last minute to the grocery store to buy that one item that we forgot.
