Thanksgiving Time

Thanksgiving Time

When all the leaves are off the boughs,
And nuts and apples gathered in,
And cornstalks waiting for the cows,
And pumpkins safe in barn and bin,
Then Mother says, "My children dear,
The fields are brown, and autumn flies;
Thanksgiving Day is very near,
And we must make thanksgiving pies!"

I have a long list of things to do today, to get our family ready to go out of town for the holiday.  In between packing and writing out instructions for our pet sitter and cleaning out the car, I must make a pumpkin pie. (For Thanksgiving Day is very near!)  Yum.  I love all the different foods we have at Thanksgiving, but my favorite dish has to be the pie.  What is your favorite thing to eat on Thanksgiving?


  1. It's funny, but I don't have a single favorite Thanksgiving food--which is odd, since I adore food so much! Probably the turkey and gravy, mostly because I rarely have that other than Thanksgiving. We're going out to eat on turkey day, and, honestly, I probably won't get the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner because it doesn't look that great on the menu. But I think I'm going to pick up a turkey breast to roast on Friday! Happy Thanksgiving, Janelle!

  2. I have the opposite problem ~ though pie is my FAVORITE favorite, I have a whole bunch of favorite Thanksgiving foods (and always eat too much of all of them, LOL).

    Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Laura. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, whatever you choose to eat! :)
