    I'm working, barely. It's a four day week for me as my son and I always take the day off for our birthday. Should be lots garbage food and cake this weekend :P

    Take heart, bakin. Birthday calories don't count. HAHA! 😁

    @cgrout78 Tell us some jokes over at Dad jokes.
    There's a fella looking for people who like to laugh, too. Your talents are needed. They got the hook out and pulled me off the stage.

    Oh my god, I love the pumpkin bread! I usually make a cornucopia out of bread dough for Thanksgiving every year. A couple of sourdough pumpkins next to it and tiny pumpkin rolls inside would be amazing.

    Look at these! > https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/276472/pumpkin-shaped-dinner-rolls/

    I'm American and living in England so I normally invite English friends over to create a bit of festivity on what can be a quite sad holiday for me. So this socially distanced Thanksgiving will be quite depressing but I think I'm going to have to make some tiny pumpkin deliveries. :)

    Oh yes you must do something... you can always make a Thanksgiving meal and drop stuff off to friends. That's what we did this year (I'm Canadian and our Thanksgiving is in October)

    I think I will do that, it's a lovely idea. And I've already had some (not so subtle hints) about pecan pie from friends this year :D Is pecan pie traditional at Canadian Thankgsiving? I'm from the south so I'm not even sure it's that common in the northern united states.


    I did read some talk of Nanaimo bars on MFP during Canadian Thanksgiving ::drool:: Tempted to add them to my glutton fest menu.

    I don't think pecan pie would be a usual Thanksgiving item. Usually pumpkin and apple because the apples are fresh! I make butter tarts which are basically pecan pie in tart form but with raisins

    Morning all you beautiful people. Hope you had a restful night and are ready to roll.

    @AliNouveau can I buy your baked goods, so I don't have to do the work? LOL @FutureFit2020 I live in MN and never had pecan pie, I think it's more of a southern thing? We usually do Pumpkin and Apple for our (american) thanksgiving. @LunaTheFatCat that is hilarious!! But i'd be mad too if I made the effort for nothing. I'm so lazy these days. I'm doing a presentation today, and I'm still wearing sweats, just a nice top and makeup. Hahaha.

    I’ve had pecan pie and I live in Canada 😂
    It’s a must to try, especially warm with vanilla ice cream 😍
    @AliNoveau - pics please if and when you do the spider 😊
    @cgrout78 - you’re gonna do great! Let us know how it goes 🤗

    Good morning folks!
    I have never made a pecan pie (in PA) because my family always wants apple and pumpkin, but I love it and this should be the year, right?

    @AliNouveau - I agree - would love to see the pics!

    NEVER? Well, get on it woman. Seriously you must. It's just actual heaven in a pie tin.

    Just dragged my family for flu shots. I was lucky enough I have booked appointments the day they offered them. We also go lucky they had it, apparently yesterday they didn't get enough and had to cancel everyone. I also found batteries that I needed and couldn't find at another store so yay!
  • LunaTheFatCatLunaTheFatCat Member Posts: 237 Member Member Posts: 237 Member
    Oooo @AliNouveau I love your new profile pic, gorgeous colour on you!
    Apparently it's hard to get flu shots here as well. Haven't tried myself but from what I've heard anyway.

    It's so cold here this morning, I have the heater on already and it's not even 9am yet. Ah well, more coffee I suppose!

    And here's another pecan pie virgin! I suppose we wouldn't really have that this side of the ocean. Not even sure to be honest.
