Happy Thanksgiving!


Rick, Matty and I got to work early this evening and made two apple pies (Mom will be making the pumpkin pies!). We peeled, and cored, and sliced...mixed in the spices and raisons...and popped them in the oven. Then we had to sit there and smell all those wonderful sugary and cinnamonny smells. Mmmmm....when they were done, we sliced the second pie and all had a piece. Quality is very important to us, and we had to run a test to make sure the apples and spices held up. They did (yum!). Matty and I are heading down to mom and dad's early in the morning to start cooking. Rick will join us a little later in the day. We will spend all day in the kitchen laughing and talking, slicing and dicing, and relaxing...and being thankful. It will be a wonderful day, and I wish everyone the same.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I like your idea of 'quality control' on the pies!!

...and I love your festive Indian corn!

Hope you have a great time in the kitchen Thanksgiving Day. Quality control is very important. My husband usually insists on taking on the job. He is an excellent QC guy!

Sue said...

Are you sure it was quality control? Or just smelling those wonderful smells?
:D
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

...I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We get to do it again in two days. This time it will be at our house. We had fun cooking with mom at her house today (and man...it was awesome gravy!).

Happy Holidays. Thanks for the nice comments on my artwork. Last night I watched Charlie Brown while at home and the work of Charles Schultz simple illustrations, even the autumn trees.
I like your action photos, especially the Red-shouldered Hawk.
I saw birding sites on poetry sites.
