I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. It is one of my FAVORITE holidays, and this year it is at my house. Something that hasn't happened in years!
There is a lot of work ahead today, cleaning…prepping…cooking…and in case there is any issue with the delegated chores…See mug!
Who needs breakfast when you are cooking and snacking all morning. I started by making Deviled Eggs…which means I ate about 3 whole eggs that didn't make the cut.
Then, I made the pecan pie. I have a recipe that is modified from an original family recipe to have a lower glycemic load.
1 cup Brown Rice Syrup
1 cup Coconut Sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Butter Melted
1 cup Pecans
1 pie crust
Mix the Sugar, Brown Rice Syrup, and Butter until creaming. Add 1 egg at a time until incorporated. Add Vanilla and Salt. Fold in Pecans and pour into uncooked pie crust. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until brown and bubbly
Below is the final product (Can't wait to eat it tomorrow), the "taste testing" went well.
STARVING! I did eat really anything else all day, but found myself super hungry at around 2:30, so grabbed a piece of toast. My kitchen was already clean and ready to go, so I did not want to make anything…so that would do.
Tonight we went out. Hubby suggested we go out tonight since we will be cooking all day tomorrow. GREAT IDEA!
Pizza and Pasta! Meatball, Broccolini and Spinach Pizza…and Gnocchi.
