We're off to Ottawa tomorrow to do Thanksgiving (again) with Billy's family. But its really just an excuse for Billy to see the Calgary Flames play the Sens. This should be interesting, our favourite teams are playing each other!
I thought I'd leave you with one last post before I go. For the trip I made the "Anything Goes" fruit muffins from How It All Vegan. I chose apple and pear as the fruit. The pear smelled beautiful when I was making them. Unfortunately, the combo made for a pretty bland muffin. They're still ok, just not great. I don't have a picture of them. I've made this recipe before with raspberries and blueberries, now that was good!
Billy's mom will be making my Tofurkey feast alongside her own turkey, so I don't need to worry about dinner...but I did want a yummy dessert to have while everyone else enjoys their pumpkin pie. I already made pumpkin cheesecake last weekend, so I didn't want anymore pumpkin. I decided on Wolffie's fudge pecan pie from La Dolce Vegan. I really thought this recipe didn't turn out. First of all, after I took the pie out of the oven (after an hour), the top part of the crust was burnt! Then the recipe said to cook until a toothpick came out clean. So I thought I had overcooked the crust and undercooked the filling. But Wolffie let me know that the filling sets as it sits, so I decided to try the pie before chucking it all. I just picked off the top crust...and it is yummy-licious! I just trimmed off the crust all around, and it is good to go!
This is the pie, burnt crust and all:
Honestly, if you have LDV, don't let my crummy pictures and bad experience ruin it for you...make this pie! Its creamy and chocolatey, what else could you ask for?
I have a quiz tomorrow, so I needed some yummy study food. I made a quick and easy whole wheat quesadilla with Earth Island cheddar, black beans, and salsa. Mmm, it hit the spot!
Well I'm off, I need to pack. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
