It has been years (at least 15) since I attended a Thanksgiving banquet. But this year, I was fortunate enough to snag an invite to my niece MooMaLa's class celebration. Yesterday, the Pilgrims (aka K-5) invited the Indians (aka K-4) across the hall for a Thanksgiving Feast. The Pilgrims provided the meal, of course.
The menu consisted of turkey, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, warm pasta salad and some other things that were long gone by the time I made it to the table. But the highlight was the Cinnamon Coffee Cake! YUM. I thought this was dressing when I put it on my plate. (Don't laugh. It looked like dressing.) But when I put it in mouth, the flavor, the consistency... oh, the bliss!
I'm suprised I didn't dream about this last night. We will definitely be seeing it again over the holidays.
Happy Tuesday Before Thanksgiving!
