Okay, I know I sort of implied last week that I was too cool for Thanksgiving and was giving a pass to all forms of seasonal tradition. But the truth is, I just didn’t have any holiday photos ready at the time — yes, you heard it here first: sometimes bloggers misrepresent their lives.
So sue me — it turns out I am a bit of a traditionalist, after all.
Still, I didn’t really have the energy for a full Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, stuffing and pie for two people is a little ridiculous. Ultimately, though, my favorite part of any holiday isn’t the celebration itself, but the slightly dazed, groggy, and always comforting brunch the morning after. And so, Friday morning, I got up early to heat the oven and made my own little post-Thanksgiving tradition: cranberry bread pudding.
It’s like the two best aspects of Thanksgiving (stuffing and cranberry sauce) rolled into one and sweetened with sugar. What better way to get a (slightly belated) start on the holiday season?
