thanksgiving weekend

run, run, run, as fast as you can!

apparently not fast enough... Jack feasts upon your turkey bone (it's the same as "turkey leg," he claims)

Evan enjoyed his Thanksgiving meal on a hand-made placemat

Mom and Bin made three pies: chocolate meringue, pumpkin, and apple, which was still in the oven when I took the pictures. We all debated whether we should make three pies, but let me tell you, we certainly ate three pies.

Today we hit the treasure jackpot.

A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.

You cook the crust first, at 425 or 450. I used a bag of Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower riced in the Cuisinart with a bag of Trader Joe's shredded mozzarella and as many eggs as needed to hold it together. Herbed it with some dried basil, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

Topped with a pound of browned hot Italian sausage and some shredded parmesan.

Bake til browned.

Scarfed it down, me and my hunny.
