Apparently, I'm not the only one who is excited...

When I spoke to A tonight, it was just prior to making my list of Thanksgiving dishes, so I decided to ask him what he wanted... His response: pie... While I love pie too, it made me laugh. I then asked him, "What kind of pie"... That gave me the following: "Pumple... Oh, and make a pumpkin too... Oh, and a pumpkin cheesecake... Yeah... A pumpkin cheesecake..."

LOL... He's really excited that we get to actually celebrate together this year. The last time we had Thanksgiving together was 2 years ago, just before he flew out to start working in Hawaii, and a few days before we had to be out of our house we just sold. That Thanksgiving was as quick and easy as I could make it. I made one of those Jennie-O Turkey Loaf things, with boxed mashed potatoes, Stove Top, and a store bought pie.

I'm glad that I can go all out this year. I will probably wrangle A into helping me prep, so that will be good together time. I'm glad he's not into football... If he were, I would be stuck in the kitchen all day cooking while he watched the games...

As much as I hate to disappoint my husband, we will be eating other things for Thanksgiving than pie...

Hi there! I asked your mom about "Rhodes rolls." Is that a brand or can I use any type of rising roll?

It's a brand of rolls that you will find in the freezer section. I don't know if there are other brands that are like Rhodes, but it is basically frozen dough.

I don't think my mom has done too much experimenting with the recipe, but you could probably use any type of rising roll.

I sure hope I get to spend Thanksgiving with my husband. I plan to drive down to Atlanta (no reason to try non-revving on the busiest travel week of the year). He'll be on reserve for the day, but has Friday and Saturday off. We'll be having THX dinner with a pilot friend and his wife. It'll be the first THX ever where I haven't been with extended family. It's going to be so different.

Pumpkin cheesecake? Is that sort of like pumpkin pie and cheesecake combined? Hmm... that actually might be good. Now I am craving pumpkin pie...
