We ended on a good note....

To top it all off we ended with some strawberry cheesecake and chocolate cream pie! Oh man it was so good!!! And I'm not going to mention that we ate a whole chocolate cream pie the night before too. Shhh! Don't tell anyone! I think we started a new tradition....Pre-Thankgiving Pie the night before. Sounds good to me!

I ended up bringing a whole cheesecake home, so guess what I had in the middle of the night last night? Yep, it was cheesecake. It's so good it calls your how could I resist? If anyone wants the recipe I would be glad to post it. This is a super easy recipe and I've never found a person who didn't love it.
As for the chocolate cream pie, well Tim and Andy put a ton of that away. It turned out to be Tori and Timber's favorite. Next year I will have to make 4 instead of 2. I will probably only do 2 cheesecakes again though, so that way I can make pumkin pie and pecan pie too. Kasey was shocked that we had no pumpkin pie this year, poor thing. It's been hard living without an oven to make those special dishes and pies my family loves. Next year everything will be back to normal again though and I'm excited to have Thanksgiving at my house again.
Of course, we have to return the favor and have the Guest's over, since they so willingly fed us turkey dinner this year and the year before last. I think they were afraid we were going to starve or something and they felt sorry for us. Ha ha, just kidding. Last year we stayed home and ordered turkey dinners from the Pig n Pancake and watched movies. It was a quiet relaxing day, but I have to admit the food wasn't that great and there just wasn't enough of it. I mean come on I want leftovers!


  1. The cheesecake and the pies look good. My favorite pie is chocolate pie. Your right you will probably have to make more next year. LOL

  2. Yes, I love Chocolate cream pie too, but if I had to make a choice, hands down it would be the cheesecake. It is not heavy like New York style cheesecake, so you can eat more of it. In fact, it sort of reminds me of a lemon icebox pie that my mother and grandmother used to make. You live in the South, so you probably know what a lemon icebox pie is. Up here in the Northwest, they've never heard of it! When I get my recipes out of storage, I'll have to share the recipe on my blog, for those who have never tried it.
