I have something I find amusing to share: ever since I began working full-time at home as a clinical data manager, my husband has been doing more of the cooking. Since he has been in the cooking mind-set, we both planned the Thanksgiving Day menu last night.
We decided to look for some fun twists on Thanksgiving classics and came across two we wanted to try: Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Crunchy Topping and Crunchy Apple Pie Parfaits that also incorporate a favorite of the family, pumpkin flax granola by Nature’s Path (seriously good. Have you tried it?)
Luckily, they said I could share a recipe of theirs using the luscious granola. Give this delicious parfait a try, that is, unless you eat all the granola before it makes it into the parfait glasses.
Wouldn’t this make a fun breakfast or dessert for the non-pie eaters on Thanksgiving?
