We had an excellent Thanksgiving yesterday, hosted by my parents. Stephen and I made chocolate pudding pie (his family’s recipe), and we also tried an adventurous potato recipe that turned out really well:
The not-so-secret ingredient: pancetta.
Ours is the one on the left, my grandma also made a delicious pecan pie and a delicious lemon merengue pie. Overall, it was a nice and calm Thanksgiving, and everything was really good. There were 10 of us, including some friends of the family, and not including the three cats who were constantly circling the house trying to find a way inside.
Afterwards, it felt kind of weird to go home and sleep somewhere other than my parents’ house after a holiday. But I was consoled with the tupperware upon tupperware of leftovers that my mom INSISTED I take home.
