My oldest son, Bill, and his family came up to our homestead along with David and Javid. Together we made a happy feast of all those homestead foods. None of us had room for pie! I made two “pumpkin” pies from part of a Hopi Pale Grey squash (which I always use as it tastes great), an apple pie, and of course Will’s cheesecake.
For the last week I’ve been having severe lower abdomen pain and made two trips to the doctor, finally having a CT scan on Friday. Of course, after surviving cancer that’s always right on your mind. Luckily it was not cancer but diverticulitis, an inflamed pouch in my intestine. Funny — we always try to eat “good” with plenty of fresh vegetables, salads, and whole grains. Now I’m not supposed to have them as it will probably come back if I do. I’m NOT a white bread, processed food kind of gal so I see we have some adjustments to make. At least I got Thanksgiving dinner! — Jackie
