Giving Thanks

This is the pecan pie that I have been waiting for.  Waiting for it to come out of the oven that is.  The reason being is that it is my last item to prepare before tomorrow's feast.

 A greater part of my day today has been spent in the kitchen with recipes here and there, along with various lists of what was needed to be accomplished, and the continuous loading and unloading of the dishwasher as items were crossed off my lists and placed in the refrigerator.  I just love cooking for this holiday.  Just think, a special holiday set aside for thanking our Creator for all of our many blessings.  And one of the blessings I am very thankful for is the mere fact that I can spend time cooking up a big feast for my family.  And tomorrow when we all sit down together at the table and I see everyone enjoying the meal, I will be giving thanks for my family that the Lord has given me, they are one of the biggest blessings that I have ever received.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I love the idea of your Thanksgiving holiday. Wish we had something like that in Britain. Everything tends to focus on Christmas for weeks on end!

Monica, that photo was just mouth-watering! Pecan is my favorite pie. The reminder of how blessed we are to have family to cook for, is a good one to keep in mind all through the holidays.
By the way, I have missed you and your posts this last month, and just wanted you to know.
