Oh my......pie!




I've spent most of this day in the kitchen baking pies. I had a few errands to run before and after, but there are done. I didn't end up making an apple pie this year, but I did make 2 pumpkin, 2 pecan, 1 cherry cream, 1 strawberry cream, 1 banana cream, 1 chocolate cream and 1 crustless pumpkin dessert. Plus I made 80 deviled eggs. Cole helped a little with squirting in the filling. He likes that part. I discovered that the back of my oven cooks hotter, so the pies that were back there got darker...they will still taste yummy though. I'm thinking that there will be pie in Heaven because it's so darn good...."deviled" eggs...probably not. They get a bad wrap from their name. :o) Tomorrow I only need to make cream corn and sweet potatoes...easy enough!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and really enjoy the special time that you have with your families. I'm sure I'll be taking pictures to share....and remember to count your blessings and keep gratitude in your heart! (((HUGS)))

I gained about 10 lbs. just looking at those pictures! I guess I'll have to find a way to "release" them!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Jolene! I hope that it is a wonderful holiday for you. Those pies do look great. I've always loved pies, especially Cherry.

The pies look great and so yummy! I love the PC tool for the deviled eggs. I am making those for our family feast too....and of course I was using that same tool to fill the eggs...lol. I want to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving! We all have so much to thankful for.....and you are right....we all need to remember to count our blessings and keep gratitude in out hearts....thanks for reminding us!

I'm so impressed!!! You're invited to have Thanksgiving here with us next year if you bring the pies!!! They look wonderful!!!

Your deviled eggs look yummy too. I have one of those Pampered Chef things but can never seem to make them look pretty like yours when I use it. So I end up just doing them the old fashioned way.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving. When I count my blessings today I want you to know you will be included. It has been such a delight getting to know you through our "blogs".
