Hi Vicki, sounds good. I want the cinnamon ice cream recipe!!! We are just having the usual pumpkin pie. And we are trying to consume the dozens of butternuts our garden produced, so I guess we'll have one of those.
Jim gave me 2 Hungarian cookbooks. I'll let you know how the walnut pastry turns out. And the goulash!
So far no recipe for cottage cheese dumplings, though. K

Happy Thanksgiving, Vicki. Hope you and your family have a wonderful day. We are twelve at my table today - Mom is doing the stuffing and sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce - I am doing the bird, mashed potatoes, haricot vertes and brussell sprouts. Tomorrow we are off to SW Wisconsin for a weekend at the farm our friends own - 250 acres and a little cabin on a pond - I will be staying close to the woodstove! There will be five dogs so it's always an adventure. Best to you ~Liz
