Thanksgiving Week

Poor Molly! She is not doing any better -- coughing her cute little head off. Not good.

This is Thanksgiving Week. Our kids will start arriving tomorrow night. By Thursday, we will have 16 people at our house. Beverly is taking this week off, and will begin preparation for "the Feast" today. The countdown has begun: 78 hours and counting.

OK, for the next few days, let's talk about favorite Thanksgiving foods. We will begin with desserts. I must tell you -- I am NOT a pumpkin pie fan. Probably because all I can think about is seeing that slimy stuff being dug out of the pumpkin. And mincemeat? I have to confess: I don't think i have ever tasted it. It just doesn't sound dessert-ish. About like blood pudding.

My favorites are pecan pie, buttermilk pie and coconut pie. Coconut would probably be my year-round favorite (with the coconut burned just a hair on top). But my Thanksgiving favorite would be pecan.

How about you?

(Tomorrow: Favorite meat)

Pumpkin pie with so much Cool Whip you can't see the filling.

I'm with you, pumpkin pie is just gross!! And just the name mincemeat has always made me not like that pie. I did try a bite once. Don't waste your time :) I love coconut, chocolate and cherry anytime! With pecan pretty close behind.

It depends on what country I'm in.

Lemon ice box pie from my mom is always tops. Wes' fried turkey is awesome. Anything Kelly makes is the tops but her peach cobbler is to die for.
