Did Someone Say Pie?!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Being culinar-ily disinclined, I have never made pie before. So this year I decided that in addition to my usual Thanksgiving contribution of Green Bean Casserole, I was going to surprise everyone by making a sweet potato pie. 🙂 No one in my family has ever made one, and I acquired a taste for it from working at a McDonald’s who sold them.

This decided, plans were then put into place on how to make this a reality. However while looking up recipes to compile my shopping list, pecan pie came up as a suggestion. I glanced at it and thought, Maybe another time. Stopping myself in my tracks, I asked Why not now? So I found a recipe for that.

As far as I’m aware, no one in my immediate family has made pecan pie either, so I decided to make both! :3

When I brought the pies to dinner this evening, they were well received, the pecan of course stealing the show. It was a lot of work, but so much fun and well worth the effort. I wonder what I’m going to make next… 😉

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving! 2013

Thought I’d resurrect this old timey picture of chibi Anna in pilgrim attire ready to carve the turkey. The turkey doesn’t look too happy though! :3

I am thankful for my family who supported me through making the jump out of fast food into a job that pays a living wage. I am thankful for my siblings who are willing to lend a hand when I ask – and listen to me babble about cute crochet and Japan. :p I am thankful for those who supported my booth at Youmacon, those who’ve made me a better Etsian and for my blog followers . You guys really keep me thinking ahead so thank you. :3

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
