Some Thanksgiving Ideas & The Golden Twinkie

Remember when the situational comedy Friends would have a Thanksgiving special, and you would tune in excitedly only to discover it was a mishmash of scenes from past Thanksgiving episodes you'd already watched in full?

Welllll, that's kind of what we have here. But unlike Friends, Bon Appétempt is run by a staff of two, and thus, we're always trying out any new Thanksgiving-esque recipes on the day of Thanksgiving, or, in other words, after you might give a sh**. So, in case you've forgotten, or in case you haven't had a chance to scour the recipe archives, let me remind you of a few dishes that you just might want to try this week. 


2. Shopsin's pumpkin pancakes

3. Dry, flat, disappointing dinner rolls

4. MFK Fisher's braid and sweet potato pudding



And in light of Hostess' demise (Thanks for the link, Mary Anne.), it didn't seem right to exclude these golden twinkies whilst strolling down memory lane.
Hope you all have a great holiday! Matt and I have a few days off together so hopefully we can make it down to the tip pit to see about finding a few more tips. (Over-the-top winky face.)

  8. YES! GET THEE TO THE TIP PIT!! Also, you're going to think I'm crazy, but look at the picture of the golden twinkies. When I first saw it just now, I thought "hey, the tiny little container of golden dust looks like the sun, and the little crumb off to the left of it looks like a bird flying in the sky." Do you see it? Yeah? So freakin' artsy I can't even stand it.
