Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

The Thanksgiving Dinner was a success. It was the first time I've tried three of the dishes: the kale salad with quinoa and cranberries, the mashed cauliflower and cheese bake and the pumpkin pie mousse. Everything was quite delicious and you can find all the recipes at my post here. I could not eat the main part of my chicken so I wll save it for tomorrow's lunch. Needless to say there is a lot of mousse pie left. I would recommend making the pie when you have company because it is very, very filling.
The only problem with the dinner was when we went to eat the pumpkin mousse pie I discovered it wasn't set properly.
After reflection I realized that my little package of gelatin had about 1 teaspoon of gelatin rather than the 2 tablespoons required. That would explain why it wasn't set properly! Nonetheless the filling was so good. I also ended up having to make my own graham wafer pie crust as there were none today in the grocery store. It was the first time I've made it and it was relatively simple.
If you are in Canada, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you had a moment or two to reflect on those things for which you can give thanks. We are so blessed here in this country. For my blogging friends who live elsewhere, I am thankful for you and the time you take to share with me through your writings and your comments.
