"Thanksgiving Thursday" - 4 Weeks to Go

Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday of the year.  No one's expecting a gift - not even me.  We just get together with family and friends to spend time together and be... Thankful!

One of my dreams for Thanksgiving would be to have a family reunion at The Dillard House in Dillard, GA.

Since Thanksgiving is only 4 weeks from today and The Dillard House won't be providing all the fixings for us this year, I guess I'd better do some planning.

The next step is to pull out the Cookbooks and figure something out.  It's just the two of us now - "Empty Nesters" that we are.  Shouldn't be too difficult to come up with something, right?

Wrong!  There are so many delicious sounding choices!  I've already added 4 pies to my wish list.

Walnut Fudge Pie, Mystery Pecan Pie (a mix between Pecan Pie and Cheesecake), Bourbon-Chocolate Pecan Pie and Sweet Potato Pie.  

Now, you know Bill & I can't eat 4 pies but don't they sound wonderful?

Hmmm....I'd better think about it some more.

The Cookbook I've been looking through today is 

Best Kept Secrets of the South's Best Cooks: Family Secrets & Test Kitchen Tips Revealed Plus Over 350 Recipes - by the editors of Southern Living.  

What plans do you have for Thanksgiving?

Thanks for visiting!  Reia

I gave Ginger a copy of Paula Deen's "Just Desserts". I'm sure she'd loan it to you. Amazon has it here (& in a Kindle version).

I don't think you can more Southern than that. (big smile)

I love pie!!! Since I can't eat gluten any more I am going to be experimenting with new pie crusts this year, which means lots of taste testing :)

To Frugal in WV - I look forward to seeing what you come up with for your pie crusts! Everything you've shown us so far has been great!
