Reflections, Thanksgiving and Pecan Pie

25 Nov

What a beautiful start to my morning as we sang with this view of the Penryn River.

It’s Thanksgiving in the USA and in solidarity with family and friends in America, we cook up a storm of a Thanksgiving dinner using some family recipes.  We’ve cooked a small turkey crown with and cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, using our beans and recipe from the book “Giving Thanks’ bought in Plimouth some years ago, mashed potatoes, kalettes with shallots and bacon, stuffing  and gravy to be followed by Pecan Tart for pud.

Happy Thanksgiving to family in Atlanta, Hawaii, Seattle and Phoenix and friends in Flagstaff, Vermont and Sacramento. Also to all my blogging friends- Happy Days!

Pecan Pie

    Would like some snow to go along with beautiful day. We got lots, no problem sharing.

      Some of your snow would be happily received as we rarely see any in Cornwall. 😊

          You may be right! The first winter I came to Cornwall when I was only 6 years old, there was snow the like of which we were told hadn’t been seen here for years. We were snowed in and the milk in the bottles froze so that it popped out of the top of the bottle with the silver cap still on. Thank you for prompting that memory. 🙂
