All right folks, here's the deal. I need some help. Today, The Candyman and I started discussing out Thanksgiving Day menu. We have decided that we are going to have The Newlywed Thanksgiving Feast and invite ourselves, naturally.

We are going to test out our new baby deep fryer and deep fry a small breast. The Candyman will make ham. We agreed on grilled broccoli with bleu cheese as the "veggie." Hardly a fibrous dish with all the cheese, but who cares. It's effing Thanksgiving!

I'll make a cranberry mousse and we might have dressing and biscuits. We still haven't figured out dessert, but we have decided to have a potato-off. We are going to see who can make the dankest potato dish. He makes some really dank mashed potatoes that totally beat mine so I'm going to have bring out the big guns. I know there are things I want to have in my potatoes:

  • Bacon (um, duh.)
  • Cheese
I think I have a running chance at the title of Potato Master if I also involve heavy cream, another pork, sour cream and maybe some bread crumbs of some sort. I want to make potatoes au gratin on crack. I've got my mom's recipe that is pretty darn nasty. There are cheese and bacon involved in that recipe, but I think he's had it before. I think he's expecting it.

I need a recipe. I need a deep, dark, dank potato dish that will bring The Candyman to his knees. I want it to be so good it'll make you wanna slap your momma. I've got one I'm thinking about, but want options. If you have a nasty-naughty-dirty potato recipe, please send it my way. Know a good recipe link, tell me that too. You can post as a comment or send to my email at thethirtysomethingbride@gmail.com. You want me to win, right? You know I'll for sure feature the recipe here! :)


Pie on a Stick

I'm a big fan of My Simple Details. You might be familiar with her wedding. It was perfection. In Bali. The only reason I even know about it is because my very good friend Marie went to the amazing wedding and took my other friend Michele. At that wedding, my friend Marie met the bride's twin brother. They have been together ever since and of course, I will get to meet him at my wedding! I doubt my own wedding will be as fabulous as Vicki's, but as long as my friends are there with me, I'll be a happy camper!

Just so you have the back story as to why I am referencing My Simple Details, other than the fact that it's a cool blog. So kudos to Vicki for the below information. If you're a DC bride, I'd say call her to plan your wedding.

You guys know I kinda hate to take stuff from other peoples blogs and put yet another blog in the blog-o-sphere, but sometimes, ya just gotta. Dancing processionals? Yes, of course. Pie on a Stick? I just gotta. I'm even using the same title. That's sad. But it's PIE ON A STICK! How could I not lead with that, right?


Yes, please. For a wedding or any damn occasion. Pie on a stick sounds fabulous. Go here for the amazing instructions and kick ass photography.

Mmmmmm. Pie.
