So, when my mom heard about a friend's Thanksgiving tradition that combated the pie problem, we just had to adopt the tradition for ourselves. From now on, the Sunday before Thanksgiving will be a Pie Party! We'll make, eat, and enjoy pie for dinner. Just pie. Delicious pie!
Thus, pie will have its day to shine and won't be lost amid the pools of gravy. Here's how our first pie party went down:
Paula Deen's sweet potato pie. I made it my dang self. Look! Meringue!
Paula Deen's Kentucky pie. The top burned and the inside didn't cook. I failed.
Pies. Family. Good things.
Sweet potato pie fans.
Sometimes I think Dan and Will look more alike than Coleman and Will do.
Two of my favorite people that I am oh so thankful for: Aunt Sue and Cousin Becca
Does it get cuter than this 87 year old Thanksgiving queen on her birthday? Nope.
Welcome to the family, pie festival. I think we're going to have a great future together.
