Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

Today I am super excited to bring you a Thanksgiving pot-luck.  We have over 15 bloggers sharing some of their favorite recipes for Thanksgiving.  On top of that we have 2 amazing prizes you can enter to win.  With Thanksgiving happening next week, hopefully this is perfect timing to give you a little inspiration.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  You get to gather around the table with friends and family, and have way too much food.  In my family we have the same things almost every year, but that is why I look forward to it so much.  It is one of 3 times a year I get to have green bean casserole, which I love!  And the day after Thanksgiving a cold turkey and dressing sandwich is perfect.

Pumpkin Pie

I know how fortunate I am to work with food for a living, and never have to worry about where my next meal will come from.  So many people in this country are not as fortunate.  Feeding America is an amazing non profit organization that is striving to end hunger in America.  Feeding America is the nation’s largest hunger relief charity.  They have a mission to feed America’s hungry through a network of food banks, and to get people involved in the fight to end hunger.  Each Thanksgiving my son’s school does a turkey drive.  They collect turkeys to give to the local food pantry, so families don’t have to miss out on Thanksgiving.  Last year they collected over 200 turkeys.  I can’t wait to see how many they will collect this year.

Pumpkin Pie

So for the pot luck I made a pumpkin pie.  Pumpkin pie is a staple at our Thanksgiving.  So much so, that I got an email about a month ago from my mom, verifying there would be pumpkin pie.  This year my parents are coming out to Colorado to see us for Thanksgiving, so my mom is not in charge of the cooking.  Apparently my dad is having a little anxiety thinking I am going to go crazy and change things up on him.  I guess he forgot I am the one that follows traditions to the nth degree in our family!
