Ice Bath

Tonight Ryan and I sat side by side on the couch with my laptop propped up on his lap.

Our mission: Find a dessert to make for Thanksgiving.

I told Ryan is was his job to select the dessert this year. 

He tossed around several ideas, including chocolate pecan pie and Paula Deenโ€™s pumpkin gooey butter cake, before eventually settling on this beauty:

pumpkin-mousse-400Pumpkin mousse

I looked at the recipe, which calls for placing a portion of the mousse mixture in an ice bath for a bit before continuing with the recipe.

I told him that a recipe that calls for an ice bath is ridiculous and said we could find a much easier version of pumpkin mousse to make.

Apparently this is not an option.

Ryan wants the ice bath pumpkin mousse.

So that is what we will be making. Stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜€

What dessert will you be making or enjoying on Thanksgiving?

    Maple cheesecake with roasted pears. I’m so intimidated by the roasted pears that I actually dreamed last night that I messed the whole thing up and all my pears were rotten. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for both of us.

    If my husband wanting something made and I didn’t want to make it, he’d be on his own! But I am very stubborn and as soon as anyone expects something from me I won’t do it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also like like to be cooked for so I’m a bit spoiled. ๐Ÿ˜‰
