So, I had spent two days baking and cooking for our Thanksgiving feast. I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pumpkin pie, a cranberry walnut tart, green bean/ corn casserole, squash casserole, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and a sixteen-pound turkey. It was a ridiculous amount of food.
My family devoured everything, and complained about how stuffed they were afterwards. I'm sure you're familiar with the story if you live in the good old USA.
Four hours later, at around 10:00 PM, I walked into the kitchen and found my son, my daughter, and my daughter's friend mixing ingredients. That's right. They were getting ready to bake.
"What the heck are you doing?" I asked, completely flabbergasted. "We have a ton of food in the refrigerator. You don't need to make more. Besides, it's way too late to be baking and eating even more food!"
"But, Mom," my daughter said. "You didn't make monkey bread. And it's never too late to make monkey bread."
It sounds like a delicious Thanksgiving, all but the green beans!ReplyDelete
You don't like green beans? That's a staple around my pad.Delete
Reading your holiday menu made my mouth water. You should have invited me over for dinner. I would have been happy to help you get rid of some of that food! :)
Yessum, I recognize that scenario. You gorge yourself on the T-giving feast, (fall asleep for a couple of hours) and later in the evening you are hungry again. I never heard of monkey bread. My family calls it coffee cake, but I read on Wiki that is has many other names including monkey puzzle bread, sticky bread, African coffee cake, golden crown, pinch-me cake, and pluck-it cake.
Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Sherry!
I'll have to invite you and the Mrs. over for Thanksgiving next year. I'm sure we'll have plenty of food for ya'll.Delete
Wow, you sure have leftovers for a while I bet. What's one more? hahaReplyDelete
Yes, we had lots of leftovers!Delete
I'm coming to your house next year.ReplyDelete
Monkey bread is awesome, but that's a Christmas treat for us.
You're certainly welcome to come. I could probably feed the entire blogging community. ;)Delete
Well, I guess your daughter has a point - it's never too late for monkey bread. Sounds like a fun Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
Of course it's never too late for monkey bread! ;)Delete
Sounds like a good feast was had by all Sherry.ReplyDelete
It was an excellent feast!Delete
You'd think you'd be stuffed for days, but a few hours later, you're ready to eat again. Isn't that always the way?ReplyDelete
It's funny how that works!Delete
Monkey bread? I'll have to look that up. When I saw "shenanigans," I thought you were going to say that Schultz stole the turkey right after you took it out of the oven. I imagined The Great Turkey Chase.ReplyDelete
Schultz had a fabulous Thanksgiving! His daddy let him have a little turkey.Delete
Ooh sweet potatoes ... Yum. Sounds like you had a wonderful feast.ReplyDelete
I too had to Google Monkey Bread which BBC Food informs me is a sticky, sweet treat stuffed with pecans. Is that right?
Yes, that is correct. The sweet potatoes were delicious!Delete
I'd probably spank them and make them take the rest of the food to the nearest orphanage or homeless shelterReplyDelete
You're a tough one! We do donate a lot of food to a homeless shelter, though. It's important to give back to the community.Delete
You made so many yummy things. I can't believe she was looking for more stuff!ReplyDelete
I think it's because her friend was over, and she wanted something to do.Delete
LOL.. oh my gosh, I think you made a massive amount of yummy food... I don't think they needed more... wow... xoxReplyDelete
I did make a massive amount of yummy foods! We ate well for several days!Delete
Your daughter is correct. It really is never too late to make monkey bread.ReplyDelete
How dare you, Mom! LOL. Whew! Kids are epic. I think all of our kidlets were in bed by 10 PM. If they weren't, we were watching a movie together.ReplyDelete
I wish my kids would be in bed at that time! Teenagers!Delete
Oh my goodness! Only kids would want to bake after all that food. :) Hope the Monkey Bread was delicious. :)ReplyDelete
Actually, I'm not sure it was. I think my daughter deemed it a disaster. I wouldn't know. It was removed from the premise before I had a chance to inspect.Delete
what the heck is monkey bread?ReplyDelete
It's a dessert bread that resembles pecan sticky buns, that you pull apart.Delete
