Bourbon-Caramel Pumpkin Tart

Running a bit behind in getting our 2013 Thanksgiving menu this year. But it was a good one as typical and I promised to post the recipes we used.

G cooked a bit smaller turkey than usual and this year he grilled it. It was delicious.

We always start out with too many appetizers and every year we say, "not this year."

I was so excited to make the Bourbon-Caramel Pumpkin Tart that was on our November issue of Fine Cooking this year. It just looked and sounded amazing. But several hours into making it I remembered just exactly why I HATE BAKING! It just takes too many ingredients, too many steps and far too much time and honestly for all that work it only tasted okay, not amazing.

It was a great meal with family we love that's what Thanksgiving is all about and why we love to host it each year.
