Satisfaction

Grandma & Grandpa Adams are in town this week. Grandma was here playing most of the morning. So, I got a lot things done. I washed my dishes. I cleaned the floor. I have milk-braised pork in the crock pot. I am almost finished with the 15 name place settings (3 more to go). I drank an entire bottle of Pellegrino. I baked my pies!
Thanksgiving will be at my folk's house tomorrow. Scott's folks will join us there.
Our contributions:
Pioneer Woman's Olive Cheese Bread
Pear & Rosemary Martinis
Five Spice Fizz - a mocktail from Imbibe using a five-spice simple syrup, kumquats, dry soda...
Sauteed Brussels Sprouts w/ Pistachios & Lemon
Parker House Rolls
Deep Dish Apple Caramel Pie
Berry Pie

This is just a basic one...
Berries
little less than 1 cup of sugar
1-2 Tablespoons Flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dot 1 Tablespoon of butter over filling

My dough recipe is easy
2 2/3 cups flour
rub in 1 cup cold butter
mix in 1/4 - 1/3 cup ice cold water
chill before rolling out

Bake this pie @ 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce oven to 350 & bake about 30 minutes longer.

Geez, so is anyone else making any food? ;)

You know how much food our fam makes/eats! There will be more pies, more veggies, more bread, more snacks, more drinks, and of course the mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce & Turkey!

I know, but now you're scaring me that I'm not making enough food. But, knowing me I will think that and then there will be tons anyway.

Sounds yummy! Thanks for linking those.

I love that you were like a busy worker bee when Scott's Mom was with the kids. Jason often takes the kids out or plays with them and I think he does it so I can "relax" but I always end up doing this type of stuff. :)
