My sweet Grandma used to make loads of these apple pies around the holidays. So does my Aunt June. My mom and I decided to make a bunch this year. With a few calls to my Aunt June and my mom’s memory of her mom making these, I think we got these exact. This apple pie is simple and perfect in every way. We have several in the freezer for Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. I can’t wait to dig in…
This chicken pot pie would be perfect to serve on Thanksgiving if you are only 2 or 4 people, especially if you swapped the chicken for turkey. You don’t need a big assortment of food, just a dish like this made with love.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The weather in Florida has finally cooled down. We can keep the windows and doors open so the fresh air flows through the house. Once we start cooking, the familiar smells waft through the air. There really is so much to be thankful for.
Thanksgiving stuffing is special to most people because it is what they grew up on. It is what makes them think of Thanksgiving. Some people serve it on the side and call it dressing. Others stuff it in the cavity of the turkey and call it stuffing. We call it stuffing but serve it on the side of the turkey. Oh, and it doesn’t have any bread in it! So, we are all confused!
Traditions can be started at anytime. I love looking back on the pictures below. This was the first time I started the tradition of butternut squash soup. I remember it like it was yesterday! My sister and her husband were visiting from New York and both of my grandmas were still with us. We laughed the whole day, especially since my Mom’s mom and my Dad’s mom bickered all day. And when I served the soup to my 100 year old Grandma she laughed and said, “What is this sh**?”
