Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you are not disappointed as this is a non knitting post. I've been busy knitting Christmas presents, which I can't show you just yet. Instead thought I'd show you what's been going on in my kitchen. I've been busy making pumpkin bread (recipe here):



...and granola: (recipe here)


...and in preparation for Thanksgiving,

pumpkin pies:

...and apple pie:

...and jellied cranberry sauce: (recipe here)


...and a birthday cake: (My baby turned 16 yesterday, but we celebrated it today as he was born on Thanksgiving Day 1994)


We had a wonderful day today. There is nothing better than having your family all together for a holiday. I'm exhausted, but it's worth it! Hope those of you who are in the States today had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day as well.

Now back to my knitting...happy knitting :)

    I'm glad you had a good holiday. You should try the sweet potato pie sometime! It's a bit firmer than pumpkin, which I like. I'd give you the recipe, but it's in mom's head. Try to extract would herding cats.
