I always do my deserts the night before Thanksgiving, so I don’t have as much to do on the big day.
Blackberry Jam Swirl Cheesecake
I was thinking about how much of our ingredients we grew this year.
The pumpkin for pie, blackberries for cheesecake, green beans, potatoes for mashed potatoes, the chard for wilted greens, the corn for corn salad, all the onion, green pepper, and herbs that will be used.
We didn’t grow the brussel sprouts, yams, flour and yeast ( although I could have used my starter but don’t plan to) or any of the meat, eggs or milk.
My food bill for this Thanksgiving was still out of this world, counting all drinks and the few above items.
Next year I need to try and grow the brussel sprouts and yams. I also might look into some chickens for eggs. I don’t wish to be tied to a milk cow however..lol.
A homegrown Thanksgiving takes a lot more than one can imagine offhand. I appreciate the pilgrims a lot more…
