Preparations, Comedienne, Back Atcha!

1. My mother taught me to always prepare dessert first, then work on the dinner. I have no idea where that came from, but that's how I do it. The day before Thanksgiving is traditionally my baking day, simply because it makes sense. I set pies on the hutch so they are out of the way and they look pretty there.
1.b. Pumpkin pie filling with cinnamon, ginger and cloves while it's being mixed in the bowl smells so good. I lift the bowl so Steve can smell it too. (He's washing the kitchen floor!)
2. Audrey is good at imitations. She stayed in character all afternoon and evening and had us laughing to tears during dinner.
3. The man doesn't know most of the people who drive by his tiny shack in the holler, but he gives each passerby a big wave and a smile. I give a big wave and smile in return.


  1. I got to the farm in north Florida Wednesday evening and loved sitting at the bar chatting with my sister while she did the same thing - bake pies.

    Her husband told her the pumpkin pie was the best he had ever had. I'm so glad he did that - I loved seeing the glow on her face.

  2. I'm with your mom! Dessert first! Looks yummy.
