Okay, seriously, how is my baby going to be one month tomorrow? On the one hand the past few weeks have been a split-second blur, but on the other hand, I feel like I had L forever ago. This week I plan to do a full L update on the blog, so I’ll try to talk about something other than babies today:-)
Hmm, let’s talk Thanksgiving! Are you hosting this year? If not, what are you bringing/making for your holiday meal? We are having the holiday at our apartment. Yes, I’m the insane mother of a newborn that thought that was a good idea. In reality, I’m actually not worried about the actual meal, it’s more the space issue that worries me a bit. We had to borrow a few extra tables to seat all 21 of us (though, that number includes two babies).
Anyway, in terms of the meal, everyone coming is making or bringing something to help out, so Matt and I don’t even have that much to worry about. He is taking care of the turkey and I have a couple of side dishes on my plate. I also have been planning to make this apple cake (one of my favorite recipes) but luckily my mom is in charge of most of the dessert spread this time around so if I don’t get to it (someone tell me how these days go by SO fast), we will be fine. Plus, I plan to pick up two pies from Costco (you can’t beat a massive $6 pumpkin pie). Yes, even bakers go with some store-bought items.
I have another couple of Thanksgiving recipes coming your way in the next week or so, but if you are trying to plan your menu may I suggest looking at pumpkin and apple desserts to start? How about some pie too?

I wish I could host Thanksgiving! But I have many years before that would ever potentially happen. I think I’m just bringing cookies (or so I’ve been told) *shrug*
eeee little L is already a month old! crazy!
Ah but cookies are SO important:-)
Good lord, you’re super brave, hosting Thanksgiving a) with an infant b) in an NYC-metro-area apartment. Props to you, lady!
Brave or just plain crazy?!
Well if you can host Thanksgiving a month after having a baby, I can definitely host it two days before my wedding. I mean, that seems reasonable, right? :P
