Thanksgiving leftovers: consolidated into a bastard shepherd-pot-pie thing (chicken, brussels sprouts, and gravy on the bottom with mashed potatoes on top)

Thanksgiving 

Food came off without a hitch! Sarah's food problems meant that she could only have a little, but it's about the experience and togetherness, not the volume of food you can consume.

We also made a donation to the Indian Center in Lincoln

Blistering take: Thanksgiving is just the most widely-celebrated North American harvest festival. It doesn't have to be a "celebration of colonialism," but it is important to recognize the role that colonialism played/plays in the propagation of the "Thanksgiving myth" and the imposition of Thanksgiving over all other cultural harvest festivals.

Therefore, anticolonial reading, volunteer work, and/or donations should become a traditional Thanksgiving observance alongside the feast.

Stopping just short of emailing the Mandalorian SFX team to ask which shade of Wilton®️ Icing Color they used for the space macarons

Gotta get to Michael's to buy some gel coloring so I can make Baby Yoda's Favorite Space Macarons

Made some cinnamon swirl bread. I tried to swirl it in a "palmier" pattern but it turned out looking... vaguely anatomical

Oof... I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who's noticed this pattern. | Bake Off has an issue with cultural ignorance, by Ashley Tan

Thinking about the frog legs with aioli I had at a Cajun restaurant all the way back when we used to go to restaurants

Would definitely appreciate some of those right now tbh

How to seed a pomegranate the correct way. It does not involve any water, mess, or spanking the arils out with a wooden spoon.

baked baking 

Got very high and made some 7-layer millionaire's shortbread, or something. Cacao-paste shortbread on the bottom, with coconut, cashews, macadamia nuts, pistachios, chocolate chunks, and sweetened condensed milk on top.

Everything is stressful but now I have this

Other things we've tried as pizza sauce:

- basil alfredo
- pesto
- chili garlic oil
- nothing
- "nomato" sauce with beets

Nothing is quite as good as tomato!!! And I don't even like tomatoes!!!

I was today years old when I found out that you can buy water-packed roasted red peppers (as opposed to olive oil or something else my wife is allergic to) in a huge can and that they aren't expensive

We've been without tomato sauce on pizza for Far Too Long, but I made a little pseudo-marinara for these mini pizzas and I think it's going to scratch the itch!
