So looking forward to Thanksgiving! I love this holiday, even though many have mixed feelings about it. I think the combination of food and family on a dark, cold night can’t be beat. I look forward to this single holiday all year, and while each Thanksgiving is different, it’s never disappointing. And while there may be family squabbles, tension, and football rivalries, what can’t be solved over a nice piece of pie.
No doubt about it, my favorite part of this holiday is pie. (Okay, maybe it’s second to seeing my family… especially if they happen to be reading this.) I love pie of all sorts. Pumpkin pie is my hands down favorite, but I’m also partial to pumpkin pie, apple pie, cherry pie… you get the picture. It’s probably true that I haven’t met a pie I didn’t like, but I will admit that I’m not the biggest fan of rhubarb pie.
What about you? Are you looking forward to Thanksgiving? Are you at least in the mood for pie? 😉
For me, pie is usually a Thanksgiving thing, but it doesn’t have to be. I grew up eating at Village Inn (a chain of restaurants in the midwestern United States) as a kid and teenager, and there was nothing I liked better than a slice of their pie. French silk was my non-seasonal favorite, and I can still remember how that chocolate cookie crust tasted. So yes, I was raised on pie!
Take my quiz: What Kind of Pie Are You? Let me know what you end up getting on this one. Also, what type of pie is your favorite? Is pie the thing you look forward to most during the Thanksgiving? Or do you have another aspect of the holiday you like best?
