If Only Monitors Were Scratch and Sniff...

OK, I may be all "sewing challenged" every 10 minutes, but I sure as hell can bake:

Streusel Coffee Cake recipe from Joe Pastry

My parents arrived yesterday from North Carolina and tonight we'll be having a big dinner here with them and Scott's family.

On the menu:
  • Munchies (Cheese, charcuterie, nuts, crackers)
  • A variety of types of wine - some picked for vintage, others for cute labels and names i.e. Wit's End, The Procrastinator!
  • Roast capon (slowly cooked over 5 hours on low heat)
  • Pan Veggies
  • Tomatoes and Feta
  • Stuffing (Shhhh, it's out of a box!! Seriously, though, it's really good. But do NOT tell my mother.)
  • Apple pie
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Streusel Coffee Cake (whatever's left!)
(Of course, the pies will be made from scratch, by me, and Scott's in charge of the bird.)

I'll aim to take some food photos, if there's an opportunity!

Happy Thanksgiving, all. K
