Good morning! Thanksgiving is 10 days from now and I have not done much planning as we have just been focused on husbands surgery. That seems to of been a big success, he even went back to work today on light duty.
So, yesterday I started a list of things to do for the Thanksgiving meal and to start getting ready for Christmas.
I use regular Crisco for pie crusts and that is about the only thing I use Crisco for except for my Aunt Bernice's brownie recipe.
I know Crisco has a terrible reputation with the food police but it doesn't scare me much. My grandmother baked a pie or 2 every morning, even before she cooked breakfast. Grandpa loved homemade pie so that is what she cooked.
Even eating all that pie, Grandpa was healthy all of his 89 years and Grandma enjoyed 99 years on this earth. I don't bake pies every day but we certainly enjoy them at holidays and pie always remind me of my sweet grandparents and all the special times we shared.

I am very thankful they were my grandparents.
This is going to make kitchen cleanup for the Thanksgiving 2013 a lot easier!
A brand new dishwasher- it is so quiet and cleans dishes better than any dishwasher I have ever used.
