We trimmed a Christmas tree (courtesy of our charming landlords). We checked out the tree at Rockefeller Center with out of town visitors. We finished our present shopping (well mostly). We baked speculos cookies, world peace cookies, and blondies. It was time that we focused our attention on some holiday themed ice cream, and Kira set her sights on a common decoration hanging from most Christmas trees: the candy cane.
As the hosts for a large Thanksgiving gathering this year, we felt responsible to provide as much delicious food as possible. And second to a turkey, the most important part of any Thanksgiving meal is the pie. If pie is the equivalent dessert to turkey, then ice cream is the equivalent to gravy.
