We’re doing a lot of things differently this year.
Typically our home is open to anyone who doesn’t have a place to eat. This year we’re still in temporary housing, most of our things in boxes, which makes it a bit more challenging. So it’s just the two of us and what will likely be a large amount of leftovers. We’re not the kind of people to just cook a turkey breast, ya feel me?
So I’m adjusting most of my recipes, thanks to ChefTap (which has long been my most favorite recipe app). On android, it will automatically scale down (or up) and it is AMAZING.
I’ve changed up my cranberry-jalepeno sauce recipe, I’m making a new green bean casserole, and I’m experimenting with doing gravy-prep the day before.
What I’m most excited about, though, is my mom’s Pumpkin Torte. It’s been a staple in our home since I was a kid and it’s my favorite pumpkin recipe of all time. Last year we had a bunch of leftovers (shame!) so this year I’m making a 1/2 batch BUT I’m also putting them in individual graham cracker cups! I’m super stoked about individual desserts and thrilled to find a way to have my favorite for a smaller crowd.
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
