Thanksgiving and the day after

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night was so fun! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday so I was really excited that we got to host it this year. We had like 25 people over and, like most Thanksgivings, we were rushing until the last-minute to get everything done. I’m usually on dessert duty, but Thanksgiving is the exception; this is the second year that I’ve been officially in charge of the turkey–no pressure.

But my loyalty is always with dessert–I’m thankful for my family, friends, and the blessings in my life, but I can’t lie– I’m also thankful for cream cheese frosting. Fittingly,my sister made an amazing red-velvet and we also had pumpkin cake, pecan pie, apple pie, and ice cream. I was so busy I forgot to take pictures, but I promise they were to die for.

So to redeem myself (and to satisfy my constant need to bake) I made some strawberry mini-muffins this morning. Perfect for a post-thanksgiving breakfast– they were light, tangy, and delicious.
