Counting My Thanksgiving Blessings.

This year we meandered up Central Expressway to McKinney to spend Thanksgiving Day with my sister and her family. I am very lucky that my brother-in-law is a FABULOUS cook who loves to take charge of this holiday and show off his culinary skills.

My job? Show up with desserts. I just popped into Bread Winners and picked up a couple of pies and we were off!

Shelly Lieber looks on as her brother, Mikey Lieber, carves one of the two turkeys we had this Thanksgiving.

We decided to go the non-traditional route this year and got a coconut cream pie, an apple cranberry pie and a carrot cake from Bread Winners.

When we got to my sister's I opened the back hatch of my car where the pies were. The whole bag slid out, turned upside down and fell - splat - on the ground. Fortunately, nothing was too damaged. The coconut cream pie got it the worst. You can see how the pan is a little mish-mashed. It didn't look pretty, but it sure tasted good!

It was a beautiful day, we stuffed ourselves on Micheal's fantastic cooking, the Cowboys won and I got to spend the day with my family. It was a lovely holiday and I feel very blessed to have had such a great day! Hope your was equally as nice!
