Thanksgiving day. Regina dashes into Kristin and Bob’s house, carrying a tray covered with white chocolate mice, and cheese slices made of pound cake. The unanimous winner of the unstated “who can come up with the most creative new dish!!!” Regina didn’t get to remove the plastic wrap protecting her delicious dessert before the kids, big ones too, crowded to taste the critters… dangling by them by their cherry tails.
The tray was fabulous looking, my photo doesn’t do it justice.
My blog raised the bar.
Until I tried to recreate Regina’s verbal recipe…
Yikes! I even over-punctured the pound-cake.
Veronica made cupcake turkeys with doughnut-hole heads, red licorice waddles with candy corn beaks and feathers sticking out of cookie tails. With homemade chocolate frosting.
Kristin and Bob organized, set the scene and hosted the fun feast!
And roasted the turkey and ham.
Turkey, ham, and Tara’s stuffed figs wrapped in prosciutto, Victoria’s pesto mushroom caps, Muire’s onion tart, Greg’s sweet cheese pizza, Bob’s roasted deer, Nancy’s sweet potatoes with apples, Tara’s jalapeno butter and cornbread muffins, cranberry sauce, Greg’s mashed potatoes, Polly’s abbondanza salad, Kristin’s cranberry stuffing, cranberry bread, Ryan and Jeff”s pumpkin pies, Regina’s cranberry-apple pie, Torie’s apple pie and Corky’s Pumpkin bars. Recipe on Blog Bursts.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it..what a great time I want to try a mouse!! Never thought I would say that!
Love it, Grammy! Everything looks delicious and gorgeous, as do our usual family holidays. Wish i could have been there!
Hey Doll! Wishyou were with us too!
Thanks for the memories revisited…and the new ones to enjoy…I didnt even get a mouse. We need an Encore Regina!
I agree Polly. I also did not get a taste. They were too cute to eat and than they were gone.
