Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner? The last few months have just flown by at our house. I feel like I am totally unprepared for the holiday season. But I guess it doesn't matter, because it's coming anyway!
I really love this time of year. (Everything except the icy roads. Hate those.) I love it that everyone starts focusing on what they have to be grateful for. I love it that everyone is generous and spends a little more time thinking about others than they think about themselves. I love seeing the excitement in my children's eyes. They are all excited for Thanksgiving. They can't wait to spend time at grandma and grandpa's house, and of course they are looking forward to the food. I'm pretty sure they get that from me.
Pumpkin pie is not a favorite at our house. I know, that's criminal during Thanksgiving season. Please don't hate. We do like pumpkin in just about any other baked good. This pumpkin dessert is a favorite. I've had several different recipes over the years, but when I tried my friend Suzanne's variation, it was my favorite. I made sure and got the recipe from her and it haven't changed a thing about it. It is so yummy! Everyone in my family loves this stuff, even the ones who won't touch pumpkin pie.
