It’s Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. There is so much to be thankful for, and I am grateful for so many blessings!
This week I did not do any sewing. I became very excited about the upcoming holidays, so I decided to test a couple of recipes. First up was Peppermint Bark. The Mister found a great silicon pan at Goodwill that looked brand new, so we figured we would try out a new candy recipe. I wasn’t thrilled with the recipe that came with the pan, as it seemed to be half of what was needed. The bark ended up really thin in some places, and I did not like the marbling. I’ll be doubling the recipe and waiting in between layering the dark and white chocolates. The other recipe we tried out was Pumpkin Cobbler, but there is no longer any evidence in the house that such a dessert was made.
I started my Thanksgiving Turkey prep on Monday night. I have the herb butter mixture under the skin and am currently dry brining it. I can’t wait to cook this and eat up on Thursday!
I should put at least one quilty related thing in this post. Today I received the Tula Pink patterns I ordered when Tula was at Fall Market. Since I ordered during that time, and because supplies were obviously still available, I also received a sample pack of her upcoming line, Chipper, as well as the brochure she handed out at Market. Let me just say that I LOVE the colors in this line! Bright, bold, and they work fabulously together. Of course it IS Tula Pink, so no real surprise there!

Yum! some experimenting with recipes happened here too. A pumpkin spice cake, was a bit of a disappointment. On to the real cooking! Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a lovely time with family and friends. And thank you, Christine, for hosting To-Do Tuesdays!
I hope you had more success with your recipes! We tried a new cranberry sauce recipe that we absolutely fell in love with. And that’s something given that I do not like cranberry sauce and Brad is a tried-and-true sauce-in-the-can kind of man! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and I hope you and yours had a wonderful time together too!!
Peppermint bark – YUM! Sounds like you are going to be having a very yummy Thanksgiving. I bet that turkey is going to be so good! Have a fantastic holiday, Friend!
We ate WAY too much and lazed around on Thanksgiving Day binging Amazon Prime’s The Man in the High Castle. LOVED it! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!
I volunteer to eat any peppermint bark you deem not perfect! hahaha
I’d send you some but Brad already ate it all!! LOL!!! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
