A Weekend of Thanks

It's Thanksgiving Weekend (who says T-Day has to be just a day? Not I.) and I'm actually still too full to contemplate eating any more food, let alone making or trying anything pie related. BUT never fear - I still have a fridge full of food (3 words: 15-pound-turkey) and will be making some delicious leftover creations. Until then, however, I leave you with two pictures of the pies we got to eat this past Thursday.

Pumpkin Pie Supreme - the secret ingredient is...a cup and a half of spiced rum

When in doubt (and traveling) bring a Moon Pie

Some explanation: the first pie is a Pumpkin Pie Supreme, homemade by one of my dinner guests.

The second pie is a Moon Pie. Yes, a Moon Pie. Why, you ask? Well, I'd like to say that my friends and I have a long-standing tradition of taking one moon pie and cutting it into so many pieces that it feeds the entire party and then some, reminding us of the selfless giving that the first settlers and the Native Americans showed each other so many years ago. In actuality, one of my guests was from out of town and didn't land at LaGuardia until about 20 minutes before the turkey came out of the oven, and decided to contribute the only pie that meets TSA travel regulations.

 All-in-all, I hope everybody had (and is still having) and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend filled with friends, family, good food, beautiful weather, and as always, delicious pies.

Happy Thanksgiving from Macy's Balloon Blowing Up!
