Just Take A Second

I know I should be focusing on holiday cookies right now (both today’s snow flurries and the calendar say we’re well into December), but I want to linger over Thanksgiving for a bit. I mean, at this point, what’s the harm in another piece of pie?

Gramma Inez’s pumpkin cheesecake with cranberry swirl
roasted root vegetables

Or some homemade brioche rolls?

sweet potato brioche rolls
sweet potatoes with pecans and parmesan. and toasted mallows.
roasted Brussels sprouts with crispy pancetta

Can I just take a second to say… yum?
I’ve been basking in the full-bellied warmth of Thanksgiving for the past week and a half, thinking about all the time spent in the kitchen, the scent of warm butter, fresh herbs, and toasted pecans, Emily’s très adorable table decorations, and the hilarity that ensues when you combine a table full of cousins and an iPhone app called “FatBooth.”

Mama and Popsicle

As far as I’m concerned, cookies can wait another week. I’d rather have another slice of pie.

I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie

With that in mind, allow me to present my official 2010 Pie Lover’s Gift Guide:

    So cute, Mols. I might be making an unprecedented stop at your house next year. No offense to my family, but our food just doesn't compare anymore.

    mmm..mmmm.mmmm A mighty fine recollection of another memorable Thanksgiving, from every dimension! Bravo to the executive chef, the pastry chef, the sous chef, the table designers. And of course, the assembly of family (new and old) is superb! Wish we could celebrate Thanksgiving more than once a year!
