I am not hosting Thanksgiving, although we will still cook a turkey. This year we will do it in the smoker dh got for his birthday. If it doesn't come out well, at least the traditional dinner won't be ruined!
A few years ago I bought myself this pretty cake/pie stand from Lenox. On sale and with a coupon it was under 20 dollars. I got one for my sister too.
I love the base, it is shaped like a pumpkin.
What should I fill it with?
I have been assigned 4 things to bring for Thanksgiving...sweet potato and apples, glazed carrots, an appetizer and a dessert. I usually make a kiddy dessert and an adult.
So I have been thinking about it.
Maybe a nice apple tart. This time I will drizzle it with caramel.
Or perhaps Apple crisp.I could make them in individual ramekins...maybe.
Years ago a group of us made the caged pears with the puff pastry.
I think you could poach a half of an apple and stuff it the same way as the pear. Why not?
Or that apple pie with the shredded crust I made a few times.
Do you make something different, or do you stick to the "traditional"?
Maybe some date nut bread for those who do not like sweet things? Recipe here.
Tonight, a simple Sunday dinner setting, a fabric turkey is the centerpiece .
I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday

Marty for Tabletop Tuesday.
It was a beautiful day , a little breezy , but nice for a walk on the beach here.
Have a great week!
