Post Thanskgiving

Thanksgiving has been so much fun! We are all a bit worn out from the festivities....
But that just makes for jammy days with lots of snuggles.

It was a great day- lots of food, and most excellent company. And of course, at our house, the traditional "Feats of Strength":

(Which is really just a contest between brothers in an attempt to burn off some of the food and energy- but we all enjoy watching.)

Everyone had a great time. My niece expressed it best:
A day of big smiles. :)

And lots of food....
I made 2 of Lobug's Ultra-Rich Chocolate Pies. Recipe below...

In a mixer,
3/4 c butter (or margarine)
3/4 c sugar
Whip together well.
In a Pyrex 1 cup measuring cup, put 6 oz of Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate pieces. Fill in the cracks in the cup with sugar. Melt in a microwave for 2 minutes- 1 minute at a time so it doesn't overheat and splatter.
Add to the mixer.
Add 1 tsp or thereabouts of vanilla flavoring.
Mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 3/4 c of water and enough Ener-G Egg Replacer to be stiff. I never measure, but it's probably close to 4-6 Tblspns of the Egg Replacer.
Add that to the mixer and mix well.
Pour the chocolate mix into a prepared pie crust (I like the pre-made graham crusts from the store- if you really like chocolate, get the chocolate graham crust!).
Cover, place in the refrigerator for 5hrs before cutting and serving.

No eggs, no soy, no dairy (if you use margarine or oil), and super rich!!! Tons of sugar, so don't eat before bed! ;)

I hope your Thanksgiving was just as fun as ours!!!!
