On today’s agenda:
Bake pumpkin cheesecake (it’s in the oven). This is the first step in a two-day process to make this cheesecake!
Make Maple Herb Butter (this is used on the turkey and in the gravy).
Today’s disaster was a great one: I poured the cheesecake batter into the springform pan and was impressed with how full it was. I picked the pan up by the sides and discovered too late that the springform was…”unsprung.” Batter oozed out the sides as I quickly slammed the ring down and fastened it tightly. The accident left an impressive creamy orange ring on my counter, but there was still enough batter to make a decent cheesecake, so I quickly shoved it in the oven before I did any more damage to it!
