Thanksgiving meal

 Have you cooked your own Thanksgiving meal?
Usually we go to Josh's parents house for Thanksgiving.
There is always lots of people and good food!
Everyone brings a dish, Josh's parents cook the bird, which is always so good.

I have cooked one meal.
In 2005, we lived in Virginia.
As you can see from the picture above, we had turkey, stuffing, gravy, mash potatoes,green bean casserole and more.
That's little Petey with his hands in the turkey and little Vanny before his glasses.

Basic stuff. At that time I didn't really know what I was doing. I am a better cook now.
I would have chosen some different dishes.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving Dinner is pumpkin pie or even better.......pumpkin rolls!
I always make sure I save room for dessert.

How about you?
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner?

1 refrigerated pie crust softened

6 cups sliced, peeled apples
3/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/3 cup caramel topping
2 to 4 tablespoons chopped pecans

in a large bowl, gently mix ingredients
spoon into crust lined pie plate
top with second crust
seal edges and flute
cut slits or shapes into the top layer of crust
 Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
 Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Immediately after removing pie from oven, drizzle with caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours.
