We are lucky enough to have two Thanksgiving meals each year. On Thanksgiving Day, we spend it in the city with our friends Amy and Jamie who live in downtown Detroit. Jamie’s birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year and his family was in town to celebrate and spend the holiday with him. So there were seven of us counting Ellie.
Amy and Jamie prepared most of the food and we just showed up to eat it. We did contribute dessert though.
The menu consisted of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, squash, green peas, sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole. And the for dessert I made a pumpkin pie and a triple chocolate cake, and Jamie’s mom made an apple pie. Yes, three pies for six people. That’s the way to do it.
What a great meal! And just in another day, we get to do it all over again with my family at my folks house!
I just got the recipe off the sticker on the pumpkin from the store, but the crust was from the Alton Brown recipe which included crumbled gingersnap cookies! So good!
The cake was rich, yet light and fluffy.
