Due to Family obligations
Today we are having a Dress Rehearsal of sorts.
So, the good news is, I’ll be preparing a dish I would otherwise not have the opportunity to concoct. But before I continue with the pièce de résistance let me first give some thanks.
I am Thankful for being an American, for living in a country full of diversity and people who are willing to fight tooth and nail for those Freedoms.
I am Thankful for Artists, Painters, Writers, Directors, Actors, All of the people who give their time to creating things for other people.
I am Thankful for my Aunts, Uncles and for each and every one of my cousins, even if we don’t see eye to eye anymore or hang out on a daily basis with one another, I’m grateful for their presence in my life. They’ve helped shape me into the person I am today.
I am Thankful for my Friends for appreciating my talents and inspiring me to be my best.
I am Thankful for having in-laws who aren’t cliché and awful but truly wonderful, thoughtful people. Who give a lot to the people they love.
I am Thankful for my Grandmother who gives her all for her family.
I am Thankful for Annie and Gracie and all of the animals in this world ❤
I am Thankful that I found my true soul mate in Stan, some one who truly understand what makes me tick. I’m forever grateful that we found one another.
and most of all,
I am Thankful for my Parents.
There are too many reasons for being thankful but most importantly,
I am grateful for them teaching me the importance of being a decent human being.
So, last year I recreated a classic “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” this year its a Thanksgiving Cake. It all started with Facebook. A friend posted this video clip of this incredible cake inspired meal.
I know some people may find this completely disgusting.
But the challenge of it is just too hard for me to pass
especially now that I have a Grand excuse for doing it,
and enough people to actually eat my concoctions.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
And here’s how you construct it:
- Make all your ingredients.
- Make the Cornbread Mix into cake pieces (Make sure to not make the pieces too thick.)
- Turn Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes into Mash Potatoes and Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
- Make Stuffing.
- After all of your ingredients are ready, Dollop some mashed potatoes into the middle of the plate.
- Place one piece of Cornbread onto the plate and cover it with Stuffing.
- Place the second piece of Cornbread on top of the Stuffing. Cover that with Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
- Place the third piece of Cornbread on top of the Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
- Ice entire cake with Mashed Potatoes.
- Add a drip layer of Gravy around the circumference of the top layer.
- Add some frills of Mash Potatoes to the cake.
- Add Jellied Cranberries.
- Add Dowels to support cake and piece of Cardboard.
- Place Cooked Cornish Hen to the top of the cake.
- Top with Parsley.
And there you go.
I dedicate this meal to my Grandfathers, Nana and Aunt.
I wish they could enjoy this with us.
