Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute
Thanksgiving dinner was a huge success! We had 10 guests and 4 “to go” plates, including one for “old guy” who came out of his booth to kiss me he was so excited.
I am so glad I managed to pull that whole dinner off on my own. It was a lot of work, but well worth it. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the meal. I think the thing I am most proud of is pulling off Pumpkin Pie without Sweetened Condensed Milk (SCM). Here is the recipe for Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute…it WORKED! I was a little nervous so Scott and I sampled the pie the night before and I was amazed how good it was. I will use this instead of SCM for all my future pumpkin pies.
I also ventured off the “safe” path and tried this Pecan Pie. No Karo syrup and it was FABULOUS!
So with that said, soups on! Today is turkey soup day. Scott is sick so it is perfect timing!
