Just Julie: I burnt the cheesecake...and other Thanksgiving thoughts!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a great day filled with lots of yummy food, family and friends. We're going over to my brother-in-laws house to spend the holiday with his family and I am honestly looking forward to having someone cook for us for a change. Also, they have young kids so we can relax and let the kids play without having to worry about child-proofing, etc.

I'm responsible for the cheesecake. I made one last night and burnt it! I really almost cried and would die of embarrassment if we brought a burnt cheesecake to the dinner. I can just picture everyone's faces as they bite into the cheesecake, assuring me it's "mmm, yummy" when in fact they're thinking ewww, this tastes burnt...and being able to tell by the way they're chewing that they don't really like it.

I was seriosuly bummed. If you knew our family you'd know that my cheesecake is like the MAIN desert, it always turns out awesome and costs a small fortune to make, there's no way I'd bring a burnt one. So, after much late night distress my husband went out to the store to buy me some more last minute ingredients so that I can try to redeem myself this morning by baking another one...wish me luck!

The weather man has promised us a day in the 70's, hopefully some in the 60's, and we're much looking forward to the cool crisp air. It just doesn't feel like the holidays when we're sitting here in the 90 degree heat.

I have much to be thankful for, mine and my families health, our home, my beautiful children, and my hard-working and loving husband. I am also so thankful for cloth diapers. Thankful that such creative wahms exist who invented today's modern diapers. Thankful that I discovered them and began my business. Thankful for all the wonderful wahms and customers I've connected with online. Thankful for my Blog and all it's readers.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
And best of luck with the Cheesecake! I'm sure it will turn out perfectly!

Thanks! I'm starting on it now...and I'll probably sit and watch it cook for fear of leaving it in too long again...

Where in the world are you that it's so nice and warm!?!? I grew up in South America, so it's NOT the holidays unless it's hot! You have to SWEAT and possibly get sun burnt while doing your Christmas shopping!!

Anyway, right now we're in northern IL, and we had snow this morning! It was gone quickly, but still pretty!

I hope that your cheesecake turns out well. I have never been brave enough to try making one on my own.

We're in Florida, about an hour east of Orlando on the coast. It's been so hot this fall so far, tonight though it's getting down to the 60's and feels awesome. I hope it stays cool now. I love the sunny summer weather most of the year but around Thanksgiving and Christmas I want it to be cold out!
