aloha friday scoop - black friday edition

the store-bought crust toppled over in the oven killing my mister's pumpkin pie dreams (curses!), but martha's bacon & caramelized leek dip and the contessa's panko stuffing (sans mushrooms, natch) were thanksgiving 2011 hits as was the tiny portion of creamed spinach (thanks emeril!). hopefully, the leftover steak will pair nicely with the extra homemade rolls tomorrow (mini philly cheesesteak sandwiches, perhaps?).

hopefully, your thanksgiving feast was free of any mishaps. since dessert was a bust, the black friday edition of the scoop received a little extra love. before you scroll down for all the details, please know i am sending happy mahalos & delighted mercis wherever you may be reading h|h . . . most especially for welcoming my little blog onto your screen.
