I made a Pumpkin Pie to take with us on Thanksgiving. Pumpkin Pie was something I never saw back in England and few people cook with Pumpkin there. But I have learned to love this traditional American dessert. However I like it warm, which I am sure harks back to the Brit' thing about pies being hot! The Hubster always looks on in disgust as I eat warm Pumpkin Pie!
Then I baked a few batches of Peanut Butter Cookies, another thing you didn't see alot back home, although maybe you do now? Before I moved here I was not keen on Peanut Butter generally. Then I was introduced to various cookies made with it and became a convert. I still don't love it enough to eat a peanut butter & jelly (jam) sandwich though, and not sure I ever will!
Today we will be spending Thanksgiving with good friends at their home. For the Brit's out there who aren't aware, Thanksgiving dinner is basically Christmas dinner with a different dessert. I consider it an excellent holiday, as not only do we get 3 days off work, but I also get lashings of roast Turkey, a favourite meal of mine.
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
