come on over and have some pie
It's the second Monday in October and that means only one thing - Canadian Thanksgiving. Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, the works.
Our little 5 lb turkey is about to go into the oven and I made the desserts this morning. You should see my kitchen. Organized I am not.
My pumpkin pie, made from scratch with a little Hokkaido pumkin I bought last week, turned out very...um...let's just say...rustic. Then again, if I stuck an 'artisan' label on it I could probably sell it for 25 bucks.
I made these maple walnut butter tarts on a whim and haven't tasted them yet, but they smell like home. That other home that shares a place in my heart along with this one.
I'm just saying a quiet "thank you" today for all the good things in my life, butter tarts included.
Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canucks out there, near and far.
Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel. ~Author Unknown
