One of my favorite holidays! As per my usual tradition, I got up early and ran 5 miles. That race gets bigger and bigger every year, it’s more like a brisk walk while dodging other people. I wasn’t as prepared this year, so we took it easy and chatted along the way. Regardless, I ran 5 miles and now I can eat whatever I want!
Speaking of eating…I always make the dessert for Turkey day. But this year I got my little hands on a couple good recipes and offered to attempt those too.
First, dessert – Spiced Chocolate Chip-Pecan Pie
It’s supposed to be “drizzled” with chocolate, but the chocolate “plopped” more than it drizzled. So I just covered it with chocolate and threw on some chocolate chips for good measure!
And my other brave attempts. Cherry Cranberry Sauce
And finally – Baked Butternut Squash with Apples. This smells so good cooking! You can see the steam rising off of it, fresh out of the oven.
And in tackling the squash I only managed to cut myself once! Impressive, considering my history with sharp objects. Also, I successfully avoided burning myself as well – also impressive!!
