One reason I was particularly excited to get home after the Turkey Trot was that I’d made a loaf of bread the night before to consume for a post-race treat.
And this was no ordinary bread. This was Jenna’s Cranberry Walnut Orange Bread.
Given my tummy ache from the race, I wasn’t all over eating a ton (plus, Thanksgiving dinner was only a few hours away!), but I still most definitely loved this bread.
As soon as I’d eaten some of that bread (and iced and stretched), I got started on my main contribution to the Thanksgiving dinner I was attending: Emily’s Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes.
Make these. Immediately. They were so good.
The changes I made were essentially to double everything and unveganize. As in, instead of Earth Balance, I used butter, and instead of 1 cup of almond milk, I used half a cup of cream.
In peeling the potatoes, most of the peels ended up on the floor instead of the bag. Whoops!
I could eat those every day for the rest of my life.
The other things we made for our offerings?
Green Bean Casserole.
Sweet Potato Muffins.
Recipes to come. 🙂
Next up, however, is the feast!
