Happy Thanksgiving Friends

My online friend Susie had a great idea and that was to post your favorite Pumpkin Pie recipe. 

My mom has a unusual pumpkin pie recipe and my kids and I and Steve did not like it.  As I child I ate it until I discovered Libby's recipe. As a child I knew no other pumpkin pie.
I will have to get it from her, I think it is very Amish style recipe that she used. 
So I always made the original 

My pumpkin recipe is off the Libby's can that is my favorite and none can beat is as far as I am concerned. I love it and eat it for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. 

The rest of our meal is 

Turkey with stuffing
My stuffing recipe is simple and delicious

Bread Cubes, celery, onions, spice, parsley, sage, and thyme and nutmeg, pepper and salt, butter, chicken broth, stuff in turkey and walla yummy stuffing. 

Homemade cranberry sauce
Mashed potatoes and gravy 
Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows, Brown Sugar, and Butter
Green beans
Dinner Rolls
Black olives and green olives

Desserts are Pumpkin Pie,
Chocolate Pecan Pie
French Vanilla Ice Cream
Whip Cream
Martinelli's Sparkling Cider

We all begin it with a prayer and blessing

We Give Thanks 
Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.

  2. Hi Kat,
    Pumpkin pie is my favorite. I use the recipe from the can of pumpkin also. I like your dinner menu. I had one to post on my blog and just didn't get to post it-I might do that today. Gives me something to post about. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
