Over the river, and through the wood,
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, “Oh, dear, the children are here,
Bring a pie for everyone.”
Over the river, and through the wood—
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food? Traditional or untraditional? Do you have a menu that you use every year or does it vary from year to year?
Pumpkin pie is definitely one of my favorites! With my mother’s pie crust. I love fresh-baked rolls and my grandmother’s cranberry salad. And, of course, the stuffing, and mashed potatoes. I don’t have to have sweet potatoes, but my mother-in-law makes a really good sweet potato casserole. Green beans are always good and you can’t leave out the turkey and gravy. Yum! As one of my great uncles used to say,
“My, aren’t we blessed?”
