It's Quiet In The House

I am thankful for this quiet, this morning.

I am preparing my heart, for the coming holidays.  For communicating Thankfulness to my family (and for my family) and for gearing up for the JOY of the Christmas season.

I'm making a last minute run to the store, and then the cooking begins with pies.  I am making Chocolate Surprise Pie and Rachel has been requested to make her fresh apple pie.  She found the recipe on Pinterest and basically you bake a pie crust, chop up Snickers and put into pie crust, slice apples into the crust,  drizzle with caramel sauce, put whipped cream on top and maybe drizzle with chocolate sauce, whatever she does with it, it's really good!  I'll have her give me the exact recipe if you want it.

We are having a family day tomorrow, with my parents, of course, Uncle Denny and our nieces Carrie and Shelly coming by sometime tomorrow.  Our niece Kaitlin will be with us for the first time EVER on Thanksgiving!  So fun!

Tonight my turkey goes into the oven to slow roast overnight!  Here is a post where I explain how to do this.  Everyone who tries this method, loves it.  I love it because it makes Thanksgiving Day so easy!

I am thinking of you friends, each preparing food for a meal of thanksgiving with family and dear ones.  I'm praying for those of you who have suffered loss, that your hearts will find comfort in the Comforter.  I love you all.

Like the Pilgrims of long ago who journeyed out into the unknown holding on to God, we too, are headed into unknown territory as a nation.  I am trusting in the One who holds it all in His hands.

  3. Have a nice Thanksgiving! I'm glad I came by because I may try your turkey slow roast method (I do something similar with london broil). I fact we may have our leftovers before our turkey! Since we aren't having Thanksgiving til Friday I have been tempted to make it a day ahead and get all the mess cleaned up and the soup made on Thursday. This might make it all even easier!
