You’ve heard of the 12 days of Christmas. You know the song. Well, you probably know some of the song…who really remembers each verse? This is the story of the 16 Days of Thanksgiving….what happens when suddenly you realize you’re going to host a party for around 30 people with just a couple of weeks notice. Life doesn’t stop, but the party goes on.
The star of the morning, next to my sweet little angel, was the blueberry strata. I have learned to read all the reviews and comments prior to starting a new recipe and I’m glad I did. For this one, I took the advice of those before me and really cut down the cream cheese (to almost 1/3rd of what the recipe suggested). I really wish I had doubled the recipe because it was gone and the guests loved it. I went ahead and made the blueberry sauce. I could have skipped here since I keep Smucker’s blueberry syrup in my fridge, but I thought the homemade might be a nice touch. It was amazing!
