Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all had fun times celebrating this thankful day with your families. My favorite things about Thanksgiving are seeing my family, and obviously the food. My family does all of the traditional food like turkey (who likes turkey btw?), stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes... This year my Nana taught me how to make her super awesome sweet potato/marshmallow concoction. Actually, they are not normal marshmallows. They are special ones from See's Candy called Scotch Kisses. Check them out...
Scotch Kisses are fluffy marshmallows dipped in caramel. Melting these on sweet potatoes with TONS of Irish butter make Thanksgiving worth going to.

As you know, I am a huge fan of Baskin Robbins. This year we bought an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins that actually looked like a turkey. Technically there was no cake but all chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. The legs were made out of sugar cones. Is there anything better?

Isn't it cute? It looks JUST like a turkey. I wonder if there is a wishbone? My wish would be that all kids get one of these for Thanksgiving next year. And Justin Bieber perfume. I really want that.
