Yay it's Thanksgiving!! I have been in my day-before-Thanksgiving-frenzy of baking, brining, flower arranging and table setting all day.
Here's a little preview of what I've got going on over here:
First, the baking. This is my "famous" gingerbread cake. It doesn't look too exciting in this pic--but just wait until it's served with the brandied fruit sauce and whipped cream! And the smell that fills the house when I'm baking this is amazing!!
Next, my orange spice pumpkin pie. This is always a big hit--there's a little orange peel in the crust to give just a hint of oranginess as well as some orange juice in the pie filling. See how I got all creative-like and made little leaves around the crust?
Now the flowers. I go crazy with my flower arranging--it's one of my favorite parts of preparing for Thanksgiving. This year, my color scheme is turquoise and orange which will be more apparent in the pics I'll show tomorrow. Here's the largest arrangement:
Then there's a medium-sized one:
And there are a few baby ones:
One more artsy flowery pic:
Here's Pickle sitting at the table in her pre-Thanksgiving dress!
Tune in tomorrow for pics of the big day!
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
