In anticipation of a large crowd here for Thanksgiving this year, preparations for the big day have begun. So far I have added a festive leaf garland to the gourds that have been hanging up since last year, artfully arranged a few pumpkins here and there, and I got the roasting pan down so Chris could make his famous "snacks".
This treat is only made once a year according to the exact specifications of Chris's dad, a world renowned "snacks" making expert. It's best not to ask what is in them.
The annual polishing of the silverware was checked off the list today. A full 9 days ahead of time, instead of waiting until the night before.
I also happened to come across this recipe that King Arthur posted on Instagram in the last few days. Will someone please tell me how on earth I am supposed to try and resist making these? I added their photo below so you can see what I am talking about.
I showed it to Chris and told him I was NOT going to make them because we do not need them hanging around the house along with all the other treats. Then as soon as he left for work I came to my senses and ordered what I need to make them. Someone needs to determine if they taste as good as they look. It might as well be me.
