The last month and a half have been crazy for me. I started a new job (as a librarian!), which has meant lots of trainings, and have been working on-call as a reference assistant at another library and finishing up my student job. Busy! (hence the lack of posts) This year for Thanksgiving is unlike my years past. I won't be spending it with family (other than Aaron, who is married to me and counts as family, and Amy who is basically family), but with friends. And I'm not hosting! It feels weird, but in a good way.

But if you thought I wasn't going to make massive amounts of food, you would be very wrong. Though it won't be anything like last year in the quantity of stuff, it is similar in what I am making. I do enjoy making new things, especially for this blog, it's going to be a lot of the same (and maybe one new thing). For dinner, my contributions include:
At this point I have made the first three items and have started prep on the last two. I made the pie dough on Monday and roasted my pumpkins yesterday. I made the caramel last night and had a similar problem I did last year with the caramel being too thin. I think it might be an issue with the recipe itself. This time I simmered it on low for another 15-20 minutes until it came to the consistency I wanted. I had Aaron quality check it and his response was "Can I have more?", so I think I got it.

I hope you all have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving with your families, families of choice, friends, and anyone else.

If you have time, tell me your food plans! I'm a librarian foodie - I love food information!
