We have a lot to be thankful for this year. Family. Friends. Rag & Bone models. Most importantly, though: pumpkin pie. Continue reading for a euphoria-inducing dessert recipe, perfect sweaters to wear to Thanksgiving—and a vision of just how happy the holidays can be.
First Up: Dessert. Of course we love turkey (and cranberry sauce, and stuffing, and gravy, and rolls, and mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes, and the orange/white goo that results when swirling said starches together)—but come on. Pumpkin pie. Forget other pumpkin-flavored objects, and for that matter, forget any other form of pie. This is the apex of the vortex of warm-fuzzy holiday vibes. Find a stellar recipe for Pumpkin Frangelico Cheesecake on our sister blog, The Thread (it’s so good, it can make you resort to swiping half-eaten slices from co-workers’ desks; trust us). The only trick now is saving room. Too stuffed? Morning pie = breakfast of Thanksgiving champions.
Part Two: a Festive Sweater. What is it about classic sitcoms and killer knitwear? Last Thanksgiving, we highlighted a hilarious (and surprisingly stylish) blog called The Cosby Sweater Project. Yesterday, this Fresh Prince of Bel-Air animated GIF caught our attention—for Carlton’s on-point holiday sweater even more so than his signature moves. (He’s clearly in pre-trytophan mode here). Few things can make us this happy; pumpkin pie is one of them. A great sweater—supremely soft and warm for the trek, forgiving in the abdominal area for post-meal recovery, and ideally in an autumn-appropriate pattern—is another.
