Guess what this smarty pants did this morning, I fell down the dang stairs :( Yup queen of balance herself fell from the very top all the way to the bottom, all with a glass in my hand. Ironically the glass made it down unscathed, me on the other hand, I'm bruised all over my left side. Some are even raised. Ah well what am I going to do right? Thankfully I was already scheduled to see my doctor this afternoon, but I hadn't done any serious damage to myself besides my ego :p Well that, and my toush hurts....a lot lol.
Yesterday I promised a trip back to the American Thanksgiving, with a sweet little treat to make the whole thing worth while! There are staples to every Thanksgiving meal, turkey and mashed potatoes are obviously number one and two. But that's where all roads take different turns, every family has their own special recipes, whether it's with the main meal or with dessert. However there is always one dessert that is almost always present at any Thanksgiving meal, pumpkin pie! Most people don't bake their own but instead buy it, but we all know that is not my style. I personally don't particularly care for pumpkin pie so I made a coconut meringue pie for Nathan and I (and a few other family members thoroughly enjoyed it lol), but Nathan's mother and Granny both like pumpkin pie so I was going to make it for them. In true Canuckette form I couldn't just make a traditional pumpkin pie, I had to jazz it up and make it extra special. Trust me when I say this, it is worth the work and it tastes even better then your regular old pumpkin pie.
