Is this what your Thanksgiving Day looks like?
I know ours doesn't.
What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving?
Mine.........Spending time with my family and friends of course
My mom's stuffing and gravy
Putting olives on all my fingers
Oh Yeah, I'll do it as long as I can get away with it and
I'll teach any kid about it that will listen and follow.
Planning my Friday shopping strategy
Every year I say "I'm gettin up at 4:00 am and goin to town" I have NEVER done that! I usually make it to town about noon.
Here's a pie recipe Laurie Ann at Tinkers Piggies wanted me to post after I had written about on WSU Laura's blog.
Make a pie crust. You can use store bought if you wish. My mother the fantastic pie maker would have a stroke if I used store bought pie crust.
Make pudding mixture. When thick and bubbly, let it cool a little, then add your egg yokes. Stir quick when you add these.
Make your meringue out of the egg white. Isn't that beautiful?
Fold everything together in the biggest bowl you own.
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs Corn Starch
1/4 tsp Salt
1 cup milk
3 egg separated
1 Tbs butter
2 Tbs vanilla (use clear if you have it)
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 pint whipping cream
9" baked pie shell
Pudding In a sauce pan blend; unflavored gelatin, sugar, corn starch and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Place over low heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil one minute. Remove from heat, add 3 beaten egg yokes a little at a time. Return to heat and bring back to a boil stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. Allow to cool.
Meringue; Beat egg whites and cream of tarter until stiff. Set aside
Whip Cream; whip whipping cream until stiff. Add a little powder sugar if you prefer a sweet whipping cream.
In the largest bow you have, fold pudding, meringue and whip cream together until mixed. Then add to pie shell. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
