Having fun on Thanksgiving Day


(Here’s another lovely image from Snapshots of Joy. It looks “harvest-y”, so appropriate for a Thanksgiving post.)

Since I have started working outside the home five hours per day, I have REALLY missed the time I used to spend in the kitchen. Did I mention how much I LOVE to cook and bake? So, when we got home from our Thanksgiving Day worship service, and after a quick lunch and popping the turkey in the oven for dinner tonight, I decided to have fun with a dessert. I selected a Land O Lakes recipe for Caramel Apple Pudding Cake. The recipe is available here. The only changes I made to the recipe were:

  1. I used four apples rather than two.
  2. I omitted the nuts, because Cadet-O doesn’t care for them.
  3. I put the whole kit-and-caboodle in my slow cooker, turned it to HIGH, and will expect excellent results in four hours. The oven is busy with the turkey, so this was my alternative.

I’ll let you know how it turns out, but, like I said, I’m having a great time in the kitchen. This is my FUN, and I’m thankful to have the time today to do some experimentation.

Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!
