I don't know about you, but one of the worst things for me
when we had only small children was trying to make
a large holiday meal on the day of the holiday.
Not fun at all!
Spent the whole day in the kitchen...
No time to do fun things with everyone else but eat.
While eating was good, I would have liked to do
other things too :)
So...I've spent quite a bit of time teaching our
ladies to pre-prepare many of our holiday
dishes and to choose those that can either be
prepared in advance or are just really fast and easy.
These pictures are from Monday when they had James help with the
bread for the stuffing and making the molasses pumpkin pies.
(all gluten free/dairy free of course!)
Licking the beater is the best part!
Yum! Bread and pies ready for tomorrow!
Lest anyone think everything always turns out
perfectly when we cook, (this should be followed by a laugh track),
we have a container of glop in our refrigerator that
should have been our dairy-free whipped cream.
Since we really like the molasses/pumpkin pie with the
whipped cream, we'll
have to try it again later today.
