“May your stuffing be tasty. May your turkey be plump. May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize, and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs!”Anonymous
Well, the big day is drawing close and I still haven’t posted a dessert recipe. The reason for the long delay is that I have been trying to think of what would be a good dessert in the context of a small, intimate Thanksgiving celebration.
I bought a yogurt maker a few months ago and after making the last batch of yogurt, I had the ah ha moment. How about a yogurt parfait that would taste like apple crumb pie. I have fond memories of parfait. When I was a little girl, my grandmother loved John Wayne. One of the things we would do together would be to go to the latest John Wayne movie and after have Creme de Menthe Parfaits. So Grandmom, this one is for you and the Duke.
I hope you enjoy this smidge healthier dessert and use it as a jumping off recipe to create your own parfait dessert.
And, as a close to this Thanksgiving Edition, I would like to send you over to D. Wallace Peach’s hysterical post from Sunday about cooking turkey. Here is the link: https://mythsofthemirror.com/2022/11/20/talking-turkey/. Keep Smiling!
