10 Sweet Pumpkin Pie Treat Recipes

When I think back on Thanksgivings in the past, I remember events with too many people, too much food, and too much fun.  One year I can clearly remember, we must have had almost 100 people in our house. We lived in military housing and my mother probably invited the whole neighborhood for dinner. We had tables set up in every room of the house with chairs crowded together so we were practically on each other's laps..  It was one of my favorite Thanksgivings of all.

While the holiday seems to be centered around enjoying the bountiful food that we have and the wonderful family and friends to be thankful for, I am glad it only comes once a year, because I have a secret.  I don't like turkey.  My husband loves it and ops for the biggest turkey he can buy at the store so he has plenty of leftovers, but I admit, I fill my plate with the mashed potatoes, corn, carrots, salads, and an itty-bitty piece of turkey SMOTHERED in gravy.

After all, why stuff yourself on the turkey when there's pumpkin pie to be had?  I LOVE pumpkin pie.  I keep telling myself that I should make one more often, but I never seem to.  So when I found these Pumpkin Pie Treat recipes, I decided I needed to get moving and enjoy the pumpkin pie all the time.

Thanksgiving Party Etsy Shopping Guide

Halloween's over and here come the holidays.

Since I'm not doing my BIG craft show this year, I'm actually enjoying a little quiet  time before the holiday rush.  Drama Queen has her first real job working the Santa Express train in town and The Perfectionist is back doing the Christmas shows for his school encore group this year.  I know it's going to get busy and this is just the lull before the storm, but I'm enjoying it after a crazy October.

Without family nor our big group of friends being near by, Thanksgiving has become a quiet affair here.  It makes me sad, because Thanksgiving has always been a time for family and friends to get together with lots of laughter, games, and noise.  But I have a lot to be grateful for this year and will enjoy the time with my family before we all get lost in the holiday shuffle.

Since I'm sure there are many families out there who are suffering from small incomes in this darn economy, I'm kicking off the holiday with a Thanksgiving shopping guide from the small businesses of Etsy.  I hope you'll start your shopping with small businesses this year and support the families of America.
