lizzie lizzie Nice! You did great with that pie! Kudos!

The General Tso's chicken was really good; I used sauce from Trader Joe's. It's a good sauce, sweet yet spicy. And I doctor it a bit. I hate coating and deep-frying anything. I worry about fire and the smoke alarm went off a couple times. But it worked out and it was good.

Going to be busy today, so I'm not sure about tonight. I don't know if I could talk Rick into grabbing fast food or just throw something quick together. He's bowling, so it has to be quick and easy.

Since I was busily prepping for tomorrow (grin - for a guest list of two, me and Himself!) I didn't feel like fussing for dinner so we had hotdogs and instant mashed potatoes. Now to make the dough for galettes (which is what I meant when I wrote clafoutis) so dough can refrigerate overnight.

It's Thanksgiving, so, obviously leftovers!
Our food today was heavy on onions and peppers so it wasn't safe for dogs or cats, but they got little tidbits of shredded cheese we kept in a bowl on the table so they felt part of it. Only one (Goofy) of my 3 cats joined us. Sarah and Lila were not crazy about the commotion and went into the living room.
Livie was not impressed by shredded cheese and is still awaiting the "real dinner."

Well, for lunch I had a tiny sliver of pumpkin pie. For dinner, however, I had what some many had today. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potato casserole, and a green bean casserole. I have JUST (yes, it is 2:30AM) finished my dinner, and will, once things settle a bit, have a far larger piece of pie!

The ferals will be having shredded and chopped turkey with their dinner tonight, and probably tomorrow night, as well. Hek had a bit of turkey, which she has left lying on her plate, but she DID manage to lick a bit of sweet potato casserole off of mine, once I finished. I do NOT understand that cat! Raspberry sherbet and sweet potato casserole! Go figure.

Thanksgiving was a typical Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, biscuits and pumpkin pie. I ate at about 2:30 AM, a bit late for lunch, and earlier than usual for dinner, but just right for utterly stuffing myself into a food coma! The ferals were quite happy with their minced turkey topper to their dinners!

Lunch today was a slice of turkey on a toasted English muffin. Tonight's dinner will be vegetarian...ALL of the side dishes, and a slice of pie.

LOL, I finally figured out how to cut the perfect pumpkin pie slice! Would work on sweet potato pie, as well. YEARS ago, I bought this handy-dandy apple corer/slicer, designed to help make preparing apples for pies easier. I thought to myself, "Self, if you had that gadget, you'd get off of your duff and bake apple pies!'' WRONG...it languished, unused and neglected, in a drawer. And then the Grand Idea hit. I got it out, washed it well, and carefully centered the center of the slicer over the center of my pie, and very gently pressed it down, just enough to leave an outline of a divided circle, with eight perfectly even sections! Even I can follow the "outline" left on the pie!

BBQ turkey pizza with a sourdough crust.
Or turkey pie with potatoes, carrots, and peas. The rest of the turkey gravy. And a top crust.
One of the other. Depends on my mood.
I Vote for Turkey pie. You can get rid of the leftover gravy, and the veggies.
