Baking my way in the world today

I'm so looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. Not only does it provide a much-needed break from school, it gives me a chance to try to spend some time in the kitchen and try some new things.

This year I have on my list to try: chorizo stuffing, pumpkin trifle and apple donuts. I'm also looking forward to replicating my mom's famous sour cream apple pie and making a Southern pecan pie.

Not sure why baking makes me so happy. It's messy and time consuming. I could be painting my toenails, or, even better, attempting to scale Mount Laundry.

I guess I'd rather be fat and happy than focus on fancy frills like clean clothes. :)
