Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Unfortunately, Steve and I are not together for the holiday. Steve is spending the day with his family up north and I'm with Cheri spending time with her family.

I wanted to send Steve off prepared with food for a potluck dinner.

I made last year's Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Sauce. It ended up more tart that Steve remembered but still very yummy.

Steve's family has very traditional tastes, so he wanted to keep the cheesecake flavor simple. We went with Strawberry Cheesecake.

We changed the baking a little. We wrapped the pan with tin foil and put the cheesecake in a bath. This left the cheesecake perfectly flat and without cracks.

We also baked the cheesecake for an extra half hour.

There is extra strawberry sauce for serving, so I think that will be even more delicious.

Steve will have to let you know how it tasted, since I don't think there will be any left to bring home.

Yummy! It looks great and I'm happy to see that you are still making cheesecakes too. I hope Steve and his family will enjoy it a lot! I have a 'notion' that they will. :)

Sending a lot of love for a very Happy Thanksgiving to the both of you as well as those you're spending it with!

As for our busy household, we had a non-traditional year this year. Jared and the children made Salmon, Steak, broccoli & pasta w/ cheese sauce, and three jumbleberry pies.
