Turkey report

I sometimes forget that I have a sharper sense of humor than most people, even though I don't mean anything by it. In any event, I assure you that I am being completely sincere when I say that we had a lovely Thanksgiving. The kids were on their best behavior (no "ew"ing at the dinner table!); Elvis and Miss Thing did a piano concert and N. invented his own board game (look out, Milton Bradley). It was sweet to see Tom's grandmother playing Candyland with her great-grandkids.



And the food was delicious.



(I can say this without being accused of bragging because we went for the heat-and-serve option from Whole Foods.) I discovered I have a fondness for peach pie. The conversation was pleasant and the wine flowed freely.

And for all this, I am thankful.

Great photos! I'm glad you had a good holiday, and if going to Whole Foods (or as I call it, Whole Paycheck) helps, go for it!

Great-grandma looks pretty happy in that picture. :-)

Whole foods -- our favorite! Haven't tried much of their prepared food due to stringent diet limitations, but it does look lovely. Glad to know it tastes good, too.

Glad it was wonderful- what a great picture of the kids with their great grandmother. (still shaking my head that you had never had peach pie before...)

Whole Foods house brand of frozen pie crust is the bomb! Just as good as any home made IMHO. Haven't tried the whole wheat version yet.

I made two different peach pies for Turkey Day.

This summer I bought a huge box of fresh peaches and this recipe justified the purchase. I made one pie with a double crust and the other with streusel topping. After all that cooking I was too tired to take any photos. Thanks for posting yours.
