Three for Thursday

1.  I finally made Mel's famous yogurt cake.  Mel describes it as a light, moist sponge.  I may have had some problems with the conversions because I ended up with something more akin to a heavy dense pound cake:

I used Cherry Vanilla flavor yogurt which was very subtle. Despite being so heavy, it was still quite tasty and I had no problems with takers here!  I think next time I'll try a little less flour.

2.  Thanksgiving is just a week away.  I'm planning on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, acorn squash, a veggie, and pumpkin and apple pies.  For those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving, what are the must-haves for your feast?  I'm ready to try something new....

3.  Don't forget if you want a chance to play Pass the Book with "Blogging for Bliss" you need to email me with your full name and mailing address.  I've had a few people comment that they want to be included but have not sent me their information.  You can get full details at the above link.

Now I've got another hour and a bit of work, then I'm heading out to the Mall for some Christmas shopping!

Your Thanksgiving dinner plans sound wonderful. Our must-haves include pecan pie and praline sweet potato casserole.

Rather than green bean casserole, I'm making sweet-and-sour green beans, which involves bacon, cider vinegar, brown sugar, and mushrooms. Yum!

Your cake looks tasty. Pound cake is my favorite. :)

The cake looks like it turned out well Cheri, the flavour is subtle but I think that makes it quite appealing for me.
We don't have Thanksgiving in Australia, though I happen to think it is one of the best holidays, I love the idea of taking time to give thanks collectively as a nation.
Christmas shopping is on the agenda for me tomorrow - with no helpers of course!

Looks good! I've got a few things on the blog I'm going to attempt this year. It's just my family - so not worrying about failures too much. lol
