Gobble, Gobble

Thanksgiving went well. How did it go for you?

Mica helped me make Pumpkin Muffin/Cupcakes. I modified the recipe a bit. I used some coconut flour, some wheat flour, and kids Benefiber in replace of some all purpose flour. I also used less sugar. The recipe seems like it has a lot of sugar, but it makes a ton of them. You can leave them like muffins by not frosting them, or you can frost them with cream cheese frosting.

I picked out some Runts, Mini M&Ms, and Peanut Butter Buggles to make Cornucopias. Then I made Chocolate Malt Cookies, and bought Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to make Pilgrim Hats. Mica helped me put them together. I used a pill cutter to cut the candy in 1/2, except for the bananas. We made them last week. They froze well.

The night before Thanksgiving I made a grocery store run for what Daddy needed. That's a story in it's self. It took me a long time to get a few things because there were so many people there. I unloaded the cart on the conveyor belt, and Isaak said in a panic voice, "I have to go potty!" I loaded the cart back up. The bathrooms were clear on the other end of the store. When a kid has to go potty, they have to go. There were slow people in front of us. I told Isaak that I'd wait outside the door for him. Well outside the door is crackers and cheese, so I was looking. He came out, didn't see me and started to scream cry. Poor little bugger thought I left him.

Thanksgiving morning I made Pumpkin Pancakes, and Pumpkin Smoothies. Mica watched the parade. It's the first year he got into it.

Isaak helped me make a turkey with carrots, celery, purple cabbage, radishes, sweet peppers, cucumbers, baby tomatoes and candy eyes. The eyes were stuck on with cream cheese. The beak and waddle were pined on with toothpicks.

Daddy made Au Gratin Brussel Sprouts.

Off we went to Great Aunt Marsha's house. I'll post more about Thanksgiving, and the lighting ceremony we went to later.

My family did leave me once on a trip across county. We stopped at a gas station. Mom thought I was in the truck cab, dad thought I was in the camper. I was hiding in the store. It didn't work out exactly as I had planned but they came back and found me eventually. I waited under a tree.

You cook lots of nice things. We bought a chocolate pie and some cool whip, that was our treat to ourselves.
