Turkey Day Update

We had twelve people here for Thanksgiving dinner and somehow managed not to get a picture of the spread or most of the weekend's festivities. But my was it fun. A mini-college reunion plus some family and a stray student made for a wonderful time. Our spread included turkey, leg of lamb, stuffing, gravy, twice-baked sweet potatoes, green beans, creamed spinach, challah, whoopie pies, chocolate pecan pie, and pumpkin pie. On Saturday we decided to forgo the traditional leftovers and instead feasted on California roll, sam gyup, sal, kim chee, rice, and some unbelievably delicious Korean yogurt drink. There was lots of staying up late, catching up, playing games, laughing, and having a really great time. Hope yours was as wonderful!

yum! will you explain to me what a whoopie pie is and how to make it?

See, I was right. Gourmet. Did you make all the Korean stuff? And who was in on the college reunion?

@Kel Bel--A whoopie pie is essentially a dense chocolate-y cake with frosting in the middle, but much more wonderful than it sounds. Remind me and I'll send you the recipe.

@Kingwell--Anna made the Korean stuff, not me. The college reunion consisted of Rose-Hulman alums.

Whole Foods sells their own whoopie pies in the bakery section. The filling is so rich it's almost disgusting!
