A Thanksgiving Addition

I’m preparing for our Thanksgiving meal. This year we will eat at our house, Stephen’s parents will come and whoever else that I can convince to spend the day with our family. If there is one thing I’m thankful for its a good Thanksgiving dinner!

We have our tradition of Thanksgiving foods, but every once in a while I like to throw something new into the mix.

I found this apple pie on The Pioneer Woman’s website and knew I had to have it. It is really, really good. Stephen liked it, which is saying a lot since he isn’t a fan of my cooking in general.

You must try it. It calls for cream. I, of course, had just been to the store where I purchased apples, and pie crust (you didn’t think I made my own did you? Of course not, you know me better than that!) for this very pie, but failed to purchase cream. No big surprise really. It happens all the time. So, I found a substitution for cream and added butter to milk. It worked and the pie tasted dreamy!

I didn’t add pecans to the top, and I used margarine instead of butter which was a bit of a mistake, but once cooked tasted yummy. PW makes a hard cream (which I have never heard of) to go on top, but it contains whisky and I didn’t find any whisky artificial flavoring at the store. And I don’t see this preacher’s wife heading to the liquor store to find any of the real stuff. I live in a dry county after all! God is good!

Our Thanksgiving meal will consist of: Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top(although I do love a streusel topping), green bean bundles, pineapple souffle( it really is good), rolls, broccoli-cheese casserole, pumpkin pie, chocolate pie, pecan pie, and apple pie.

How about your Thanksgiving meal? What will you be serving, or eating?

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
