It's been a while since we've done a WEEKEND WIND-DOWN post...things have been crazy busy between caring for our sick bunnies and taking care of all the crafting biz. THANKSGIVING gave us a bit of a respite, but soon we were back firing up the factory. Good thing we made enough food to last us through our 4-day weekend...we started our Thanksgiving morning with homemade BISCUITS AND GRAVY, which we gorged ourselves on while watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...
After a short food-coma nap, Missy started on a FANCY PUMPKIN PIE recipe she got from one of her fancy Martha Stewart cookbooks. We also ended up making little PUMPKIN PIE TARTS with all the left-over pie dough and pumpkin filling...
While the pie cooled in the fridge, we got started on our vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner...stuffed peppers, roasted carrots, sesame-roasted brussels sprouts, stuffing, and a huge vat of my infamously-delicious mashed potatoes...
On a whim, we also picked up a couple of these ICE CREAM TURKEY LEGS from Baskin Robbins. The legs are actually upside-down ice cream cones slathered and glazed with sickly sweet caramel to give them an authentic turkey leg look...
