NOVEMBER

30 Nov

Before my favorite month ends~

Thankgiving again with the laid back tradition I am fond of.  The hosts said to bring nothing so of course we only brought dessert!  My cuZo’s famous chocolate brownie cupcakes (so chewy and cakey and chocfudgey), my quick change to blueberry biscuits with powdered sugar glaze frosting!  I began with a pasta dish that changed itself in the middle of cooking.  But I am easy, breazy so back up I shall!

The chocolate fragrance distracted my driving the entire way but all was worth the wait on our drive to the outskirts.  The nature view was well matched to the earthiness I attribute to Thanksgiving:D  As soon as I revealed the biscuits as before, during, or after dinner treats, my aunt squealed “I’m getting one now!” and my host cousin ate one immediately and gave the thumbs up with a “these are good”!  Satisfied:)  My pickiest little second cousin actually got one…He didn’t finish but he gave constructive critique for his own tastes “the blueberries are too sour”.  They were sour and as a person not fond of fresh fruits and veg but willing to bite the bullet for the nutrients, he gets a pass for at lesst trying 😉  I also paid tribute to my immediate family that couldn’t be there: my mom I got an early cooking start, with less success, but at least a tasty baked result; for dad I wore my dolphin necklace, and for my bro I watched sports (granted it was XBox, but still sports no less).

I got hit in the head with a dresser drawer Three Stooges style LoL, almost peed on myself trying to play football cos I was way to full to participate-or lift my arms, we got rained out {lovely}, and spent the rest of our time in the basement laughing, playing dual systems, and sneaking back to the kitchen to finish off most of the things sitting out.  My biscuits were low but not gone so I took 2 for breakfast the next morning.  Was a good idea cos I was starving when I woke up.
