(I hate actionscripting).
I helped my brother, who came back home from school for a few days over the Thanksgiving break, make pumpkin cheesecakes on Thanksgiving Eve. Turns out, a hugely disgusting amount of cream cheese-- pounds and pounds of the stuff-- goes into cheesecakes...
There were no cheesecakes left by Saturday. Not a single one.
Brother was in charge of making, well, everything Thanksgiving-meal related, from mashed potatoes to stuffing to sweet potatoes to gravy to the turkey.
We got the smallest turkey we could find, which was still a 16 pounder. It actually turned out to be an appropriately sized bird, and was pretty much completely eaten by the end of the Thanksgiving meal ( held at my cousin/bff !'s house, with lots of family friends invited, including my neighbors-- the adults just made the entire day a majong-playing day).
It smelled great.
I miss turkey.
The stuffing and mashed potatoes were good though. And the green veggies. And the cheesecake. Goodness I want more pumpkin cheesecake (::whine:: despite the amount we made, all I had was a small sliver). Oh well- there's always Christmas for more pastries and foodstuffs.
