We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving — 9 Comments

  1. Anointedma,

    A huge percentage of our meal WAS homegrown or made from foods in our pantry, from the green bean casserole (provider beans & our mushrooms and onions) to the glazed carrots, mashed potatoes and Hopi Pale grey squash (pumpkin!) pie. It’s so much more satisfying to sit down to a feast from your own land than just buying stuff from the store.


  2. Sheryl,

    Those are apricot bars. And they ARE wonderful! (The recipe is on page 232 in the PANTRY COOKBOOK.) They’re easy and really good, too; not too sweet but very tasty!


  3. Dallen,

    Nah… The #$%^### fox got all our baby turkeys this year!!! Maybe next year??? That one was a .47 turkey from Super One.


  4. I want to know what is on the plate next to the pie in the first pic. They look like awesome bar cookies;

  5. Looks like it was a wonderful meal! We, too, are canning up venison here in Michigan and the big pot of turkey soup also. Great haul on the wood for you and Will. Love those bargains!!

  6. I was going to ask what Dallon asked …Is everything homegrown?I miss quiet gatherings like this…God has truly blessed you,Jackie…hope you and Will have many good ,long years together..MA

  7. Will better be careful. He’ll have to start another barn just to hold trasures like the plywood. Good golly, your high temperatures are our lows. I hope all the canning helps warm the house.

  8. No charge?!?!?!? Holy smokes! That is a lot of raw material that you can do so much with. Even if you ripped it into strips and used it to warm your livestock tanks it was worth the drive. Great find!!
