Let The Baking Frenzy Begin

It is the week before Thanksgiving, and the baking frenzy is just beginning.  My husband and I both really like to cook, but the problem is that some things have to be staged over a period of days to be completely ready by the time we need them.  Some things also have to sit in the freezer for a bit, like the cakes that are baked, so that they will firm up enough to be safely iced.  My kitchen will likely be covered entirely in flour, sugar, and other ingredients, as we whip ourselves into a baking frenzy.  For us, Thanksgiving is a time to stop, and spend time with friends, and bake at least a dozen different desserts- Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Cake, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, and white cake with buttercream frosting.  We will make spiced pecans, and cookies to go with the rest.  In addition to the sweets, we both really like baking bread, which means Challah, cornbread, soft butter rolls, biscuits and cheese rolls. We’ll also be baking a pizza for our youngest two, because they don’t care for the other stuff above.  Picky eaters, but I guess it’s their Thanksgiving too. You could say, it’s a bit of a carb overload in our house on Thanksgiving, but that’s the way we like it.  I’ll try to post pictures in the next few days of the process as we proceed.  It may be amusing to watch us do silly things while we whip ourselves into a baking frenzy.  Yep, You can call us crazy.
