THANKSGIVING ASSIGNMENT

We are headed north to my brother's house this year for Thanksgiving with all my siblings and their families. We are all excited to be going. We have a good time with my family. This year my brother made the food assignments and gave me the green bean casserole and a tossed salad. My family won't eat green bean casserole and I have never made it in my life, so my younger sister and I traded.
Rolls are an important food group.
I got to make the rolls and two pies. Rolls are a hot commodity at my house. We are bread fiends! So... I made 8 dozen rolls for about 26 people. I know that sounds like a lot, but I KNOW for a fact that I will not be bringing any leftovers home. My boys will eat them for dessert! (Big C, my biggest boy, already snuck one from the pan)!

Apple crisp so that I can use up all my canned apples.
My assignment technically involved pies, but I rebelled and didn't make them. My other brother has pies too, so I did desserts instead. No one in my family really eats pie and I made things I know they will eat. Apple crisp and vanilla ice cream for one!

Pumpkin pie cake!
I also made pumpkin pie cake. It is SO YUMMY! It is all the wonderful flavor of pumpkin pie without they yucky pie crust. I am drooling already! Bring on the feast, I am ready!

I think I'm coming to your celebration. Those rolls look like they are to DIE for (and I am a bread person too!) We are down here in Ephraim for Thanksgiving!
