Thanksgiving baking.

November 20, 2012

Last week, I sent out a worried tweet:

“Fretting over whether I have time to make Thanksgiving dessert Thurs. morning if I go to my parents’ then instead of Wed. #firstworldproblem”

(When I called my mom to vocalize this thought, she replied, “That’s so funny; I was just thinking about that.” The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.)
Anyway, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve decided to bake my dessert—a pumpkin cheesecake featured on the cover of November’s Saveur, which will satisfy the pumpkin lovers in my family (my mom and me) and the cheesecake lovers (my dad)—on Wednesday night, then cart it to my parents’ house on Thursday morning, along with a chocolate cream pie from Yoder’s (remind me to blog about the pie lines sometime soon). I’m really excited for Thanksgiving; we’re having a super-small one this year, since my brother will be in California, but with all that’s been happening lately, it’ll be nice to unplug, relax and eat a lot of really good food. 
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
P.S. These Parker House rolls from the November Bon Appetit will also be making an appearance. Yum.
