Why can’t it be Thanksgiving break all over again? The 4 days were just not enough. But after eating all the food we could possible want for 4 days straight, this week I’ve tried my best to get back on track! Isn’t that the typical saying for the Monday of every week? I’d rather stay home and cook all day. Cook and eat. Cook and eat and sleep.
Every Thanksgiving, I wear the apron my mom wore during a cooking glass at my grandpa’s work in the 60’s. I know she gets a kick out of it =].
First up was our afternoon appetizer and what I could live off of every day. Who wouldn’t wanna snack on veggies & dip and cheese & crackers all day?!
And yes, I made a Thanksgiving feast for just Beck & myself. And it was glorious! Especially the eierbrot (German egg bread) and our family’s favorite!
- 4 loaves of Wonderbread, cubed, dried out
- 15 eggs
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 1 lb. bacon, chopped + drippings
- salt & pepper to taste
Cube Wonderbread at least 5 days in advance and leave on counter in a giant bowl. Toss frequently to dry out all pieces. Mix all ingredients together in a giant bowl and form balls (a little bigger than a golf ball). Place on nonstick pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
It was the perfect meal. After the perfect meal was the perfect night of watching movies and decorating the Christmas tree. Our first together!!!
Also, while eating some pie =]. A great Thanksgiving and weekend in the books.
