Thanksgiving Dessert

Thanksgiving is over and everything was delicious. In fact,  wish I was still eating. For dessert this year I made an amazing Maple Nutmeg Cream Pie.  I wish I could eat it every day but my muffin tops say no! Seriously, if you ever want to try something that tastes perfect for the season, but is different from the usual suspects (pumpkin, apple, sweet potato pie) this is the way to go. The custard is so creamy, the maple flavor divine, and the nutmeg is a perfect accent. I want another so bad.

Cat on a hot tin roof ORIGINAL trailer 1958

I registered for my next semesters classes this week. I will be a busy girl. The only way I could wrangle my schedule was to start my classes at 7:30 in the morning. I'm not real thrilled about this because, well, I'm a sleeper. If I don't get my 8 hours I am not happy. On top of that I am also a night owl. I may end up being one cranky lady next semester, but we shall see. 

I just finished reading Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for a school report. I'm writing a comparison paper on the written play vs. the movie. I love the movie and I love Tennessee Williams. Street Car Named Desire, Glass Menagerie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, it doesn't gt much better then that!

Chad the zombie a la George Romero

Who will eat who first????
And yeah. That's my vacuum handle in the background. 

By the time I put them to bed they had both had so much candy they were twitching and foaming at the mouth. When I was little my mom and dad just let me have at it and eat as much candy as I could. I carry on the tradition of creating cavities and sugar comas with my children every Halloween. It's probably the only night of the year you get to hear the words, "Okay! Two more pieces of candy then bedtime!"

Candy candy candy!!!!!

So now that I have devoured a years worth of candy in one day, I've been thinking about how to make the candies I so love. Where do I turn for this knowledge? Who will I ask about the culinary delight that is candy? Google of course! (Think about this... What did you do before google? I had to sit for days not knowing something then head to the library... Or call my dad.)
So here's what I found...
