Friend: Can you please bring dessert and a salad to Thanksgiving dinner. Remember it will be just 4 adults and 4 kids.
Super Woman: Sure.
Super Woman: Oh, but there is a Cranberry sauce I really want to try. Can I make it?
Super Woman: And I have to make Sweet Potato Souffle. My family loves it.
Friend: Ummm. Okay?
So Thanksgiving morning the festive baking begins.
It started off fun. The kids even helped (this was before the cursing began).
And then I thought, “Hmmm… Maybe I should make some rolls too. With yeast. That’ll be fun.”
And the kids helped knead (I’m getting frustrated at this point, but no profanities yet…).
And then the Cranberry Sauce started to bubble and boil…
And the Sweet Potato Souffle topping sank…
And the cheesecakes cracked…
And the sunflower seeds refused to caramelize (not pictured because of all the cursing at this point)….
And I thought that the kids wouldn’t like Pumpkin Cheesecake so I made Mini-Apple Pies from scratch???!!!!!
And Professor X spent this entire time in bed sick so I had no relief from the “help”!!!!!!!
I so wanted to go to bed and just skip the Thanksgiving dinner after all of that.
Well, at least the rolls turned out great.
