Doodles and Pumpkin Pie


This year for Thanksgiving,
I decided to make a paper tablecloth
that we could all doodle on.
Throughout the day,
we would grab a marker
and doodle
things we were thankful for.

family
health
love
animals
school
peace
flowers
friends
home
cameras
music
Christmas
candy
birds
nail polish!

It was fun
and something I think we'll do not just at Thanksgiving,
but for many upcoming holidays.



My favorite pie is pumpkin. What's yours?



Recipe for Pumpkin Pie

Serves 8

1 15-ounce can pure pumpkin
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
3/4 cup maple sugar [or use regular sugar plus 1 tablespoon maple syrup]
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs

Whisk all ingredients and pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Bake in a preheated 325°F oven for about 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    My favorite is definitely French Silk :) I found a recipe that tastes exactly like Baker's Square and make it every year :) Love your tablecloth, great idea

    Lovely photos--especially the bench and trees. I love pumpkin pie, but apple might be my favourite.
