I hope you are enjoying a day with friends, family- and a lot of food.
Or just a wonderful day of solitude, reflecting on your blessings.
Here in Plano... we're having pie!
You start with a delicious filling of apples, cinnamon, lemon and lime juices, sugar and flour. You roll out two perfect discs of dough... one for the bottom, one for the top.
You lay your second disc of dough on top of your filling... and cut out festive fall leaf shapes.
And you bake it to perfection... ready for guests to enjoy. With a giant scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
Our guests will soon arrive... and we will feast on turkey, broccoli cheese casserole, mashed potatoes (sweet and regular), green bean casserole and fruit ambrosia.
But most of all, we will laugh and enjoy each other's company, recounting all of our blessings of 2011!
Over a big slice of homemade apple pie, of course.
