Some Yummy Food and Pie Review

Being the organized woman that I am, (I hear laughter out there) I had everything ready yesterday for today's Thanksgiving meal. I tried a precooked turkey from the local grocery store. They also provided the pie. We had the traditional green bean casserole, cornbread dressing AND the best sweet potatoes that ever have graced a Rodriguez-Victory table if I do say so myself. All of these were prepared yesterday, ready to go in the oven right after the turkey. Man, I was on top of it. It made for a lovely table and a great meal.

Yes, there is turkey at this meal, but it's waiting for a serving dish.

James is determined to eat this leg.

(Please note the clean windows and sills for my mom.)

The piece de resistance should have been dessert, but my shortcut fell short...according to my five year old who begged for pie before dinner even started. I think his teacher must have talked about what you have at Thanksgiving dinner. He even ate things that would have never crossed his lips just to have the right to have dessert. To put it lightly...he was disappointed. But don't take my word for it. Hear it straight from the horse's mouth.


At least there was ice cream. I am going to let him make some cookies this weekend to make it up to him.

Happy thanksgiving!

Your sweet potatoes sounds wonderful...I love sweet potatoes except I have to make my own most of the time cos I am allergic to cinnamon and fragrant spices...
Your son is too precious....he looks very grown for 5. I thought he was 8-10 but I don't have kids so.........
BTW...if you don't mind me asking....are you Peggy or Annemarie.....and could you please email me your mailing address as I am getting ready to send out christmas cards.....
Thanks, Grace

He'll never ask for pie again... If he thought it was bad, he should have tried it with non-glutten crust. Blah.
