It has been a wonderful Thanksgiving day here and I hope it has been at your house too. We had a day full of tradition, love and laughter and togetherness. We missed the grown up or think they are grown up kids but it was so fabulous to have the little (but not so little anymore) kids home for Thanksgiving.
I am clumsy and messy in the kitchen and on a (temporary) new med that makes me shakier than usual. The pie flipped as I pulled it out. Unrecoverable. I mildly swore. Denise grabbed a picture. I grabbed a spoon to scrape the pie back into the pie plate on its way to the trash. We both laughed-a lot.
I had extra ingredients. Denise always needs a pumpkin pie or two extra as long as I will make them. So, after an overnight oven cleaning, (which really was sort of a bonus!) we started over with the pie.
Joseph helped make the pumpkin pie. Liz made cranberry bread. RJ helped with the Witchy Pooh cake and the red hot Jell-o. I remembered the stuffing this year. The biscuits that RJ helped with came out this year too. Two kinds of cranberry sauce, turkey, green bean casserole and of course, sweet potatoes with marshmallows rounded out the meal.
