HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

THE!  Event!  is here!
Coffee’s brewing.  ( I NEED it.)
A little Yes is blasting on my player for inspiration.  
Birdies are smokin’:
so, apparently, is the trash can:
and also The Husband:
Ooops.
Pumpkin Plum Tart is fresh out of the oven:
Appies are all made:
Gougeres, spiced nuts, homemade crackers, cheeses and olives.  
Oh, and a last minute Pumpkin Pie Spread:
Relatives and Side dishes are on the way (phew!).
Wine is chilling.
The canopy has been nixed by yours truly.  The food is more important, right?  Who needs a canopy, anyway. [sniff]
House has been cleaned. (the Husband is vacuuming right this moment, actually!  Awwww…..)
A little special something was made for my guests and is ready.
All I need to do is set up the tables, lay out the the appetizers, make tea and the Apple Galettes,
 
and then EAT.
Phew!  I think we made it!
Hope your THE! Event!  is memorable and just awesome.  
We all have so much to be thankful for!

Oh, And here’s that Pumpkin Pie Spread Recipe:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 15 ounces solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • dash cloves
  • handful mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 – 1/2  cup coarsely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Whisk cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth.  Add pumpkin, brown sugar and spices.
Spoon into a small oven-safe dish
Top with mallows and pecans.
Bake about 15 minutes, until marshmallows are golden brown.
Best serves with apple slices.  Or a spoon.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
