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.
I like the look of the pumpkin pie bread #MagicMomentsReplyDelete
