So yesterday I hosted a Thanks Giving Dinner at the apartment for the Ward and friends.
It came off without any hitches, fires or fiascoes!! I had about 15 people and leftovers.
The Bishop provided a Marie Calendar's Turkey dinner and ALL the fixings, which was great.
I don't eat Turkey, so I made a Ginger Orange Ham.
I also made sweet potatoes, improved the gravy, cranberries
and 'cause I don't eat Pumpkin pie either,
I bought a honey pecan chocolate tart form Trader's Joe's.
I attempted to make Apple Pie, twice, and lost the battle.
The First one would have worked if I didn't put orange juice it!
The Second one didn't work because I don't know!!
The top crust cracked open and the bottom crust just didn't cook at all!
Apple Pie is HARD!!!! I will try again later when the pressure is off.
It was fun and tiring and educational!
