This year we went to the boyfriend's family house for Thanksgiving. It was great, great food, great drink, and great company. Only now have I realized that all I got for sweets was one slice of pumpkin cheesecake. I totally and completely missed out on my mom's famous (not so famous as grandpa's) apple pie, and missed out on my uncle's fried turkey :-).
Every Thanksgiving it has seemed to be a tradation to bring our imfamous pumpkin cheese cake (recipe on The Irish Chef blog) and every year I get a picture of boyfriend holding it and making the first slice.
(this year with the addition of rum, for the conquito, recipe also found on The Irish Chef)
