Thanksgiving is quite possibly my favorite holiday. I love cooking, getting dressed up, eating too much, and sleeping it off. My mother and I drove to my sister and future brother-in-law's house today to help with the cooking and other preparations.
My contributions are my soon-to-be world famous spinach & artichoke dip and blackberry bread pudding. I have written about my bread pudding before as a great use for left-over bread. This time however I bought really great whole wheat bread from a local market. I would have made from scratch only I definitely didn't have enough time. You can see the recipe here, but I took pictures of the process.
|mash up 1 banana|
|break bread into small chunks|
|pour milk/egg mixture into bread and mix|
|mix in blackberries..YUM!|
|I used to use sour cream or cream cheese, but now I use organic Greek yogurt|
|chop up quartered artichokes and mix with sauteed spinach |
(saute in garlic and butter or olive oil)
|add in the best thing ever made!|
|I want to eat this right now.|
On to dinner (pizza) and then cherry pies!!!
