I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was full of family, food and relaxation, which in my book makes it about the best holiday you could have. Since we've been a little busy, what with having a newborn and all, my mother in law offered to cook this year. Our families gathered together over turkey, wine and applesauce.
|Baby's first Thanksgiving - he was even sleeping excitedly.|
It is a tradition in my husband's family that they have homemade applesauce for every family dinner. Bob's grandmother would make a huge batch of it a few times a year and freeze it, so it was always available whenever the family would eat together. Since she passed away in 2009, there has been a void where homemade applesauce once was. My mother in law, now that she's the grandmother, has taken it upon herself to learn the secret applesauce recipe. This recipe apparently requires a particular kind of apple, which she was able to order online. And, since apparently it's cheaper to buy said apples in bulk, I now have a giant bag of apples sitting here staring at me.
Lots and lots of apples. A plethora of apples.
