Happy Thanksgiving from MegGoesNomNom. And from Daisy!
We had a very nice holiday indeed, spent with the huz, my parents, sis, and Daisy.
Check out that beauty of a 20 pounder! Holy gobbles.
This year I realized how good dark meat is! I have clearly been missing out! I like dark meat with gravy, and white meat slathered in cranberry sauce.
Stuffing is another favorite. Plus we’ve got some coleslaw, yams, and squash back there. I am the Queen of Squash. It’s always been one of my favorite foods.
But shoot, those buttery mashed pertaders are pretty highly ranked too. How is a girl to choose?
Just give me a stick of butter and a vat of gravy, and we’re good.
I barely had room for dessert but managed to nom a piece of the Reese’s Cheesecake Brownies that I had made.
I found the recipe for these babies on Pinterest. The ingredients were rather gluttonous!
We’re talking a box of brownies, peanut butter, sweetened condensed milk, a bag of chocolate chips, cream cheese, and lots of Reese’s. I prepared these on Tuesday night, in preparation for Thanksgiving.
This is no joke.
All in all these brownies were really good, but I probably wouldn’t recommend the recipe because I think there are several issues with the method. The original recipe can be found over at Pip & Ebby if you’re interested in checking it out.
I wasn’t a fan of the hardened chocolate layer on top which made eating – and cutting – the brownies a little difficult. These were SO dense and SO rich, only a few bites were needed to satiate my appetite for dessert! Basically I just wanted to dig out the amazing peanut butter cheesecake layer, which probably means I need to make a peanut butter cheesecake in the future!
