|These were on each of the plates at our Thanksgiving Dinner table setting. I love how they aren't the traditional pumpkin orange.|
I am not the cook in the family. My Mom was not the cook in our household growing up. We love men who cook! On rare occasions I do decide to tackle a meal, or in this case desert, in the kitchen. Most times it does turn out, but not without a struggle. The struggle this time around... oh I forgot a key ingredient in my coconut layer cake... the baking powder. Instead of a fluffy cake, I had something that resembled pound cake. I went with the flow. I ran to the store. I bought more eggs. I bought more coconut milk. I triumphed and re-made the cake. I would like to blame this mishap on my stress level in general, but I think me and the kitchen just were not meant to be.
All was not lost. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner here with my Parents (who brought the turkey) and our neighbors (who were experiencing their first ever Thanksgiving dinner)!
Today we are taking it easy. So far we have watched a movie and eaten a wheat free but delicious quiche. I seem to be doing a good job of remaining stress free! Let's hope I can say the same thing tomorrow morning!
