Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers! If you are a reader who does not celebrate this American tradition, I hope you have a very happy Thursday.
Husband and I will have dinner with his parents and one of his brothers. Hubby made his usual rolls. He's famous for these wonderful rolls every Thanksgiving Day. Let me tell you, the rolls are yummy. I have a hard time not eating a bunch of them when they're fresh out of the oven. I'll confess, I ate one when Hubby was upstairs so he couldn't see me and chastise me. Well, someone had to do Quality Control, don't you think??
I probably shouldn't even claim this pie, but this is what I made. I have NEVER had such a struggle with the crust as I had yesterday. I have no idea what I did wrong. I couldn't get it to cooperate for anything. Finally I gave up and plunked my feeble mess into the pie tin.. it's just barely enough to hold the pie ingredients inside, with nothing leftover to make the pretty flutes along the edge. Weirdest looking pie I ever made. It's pecan. I hope it will taste better than it looks.
I plan to knit while others watch football, take naps, and whatever else they find to do on a full tummy after dinner. Have a wonderful day, all!
I'm thankful for:
1. Thanksgiving celebration with family (I love this holiday)
2. beautiful snowfall yesterday
3. knitting hats
4. warm toes (it's the season when this is not a given)
5. a long, quiet weekend at home
