My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Thanksgiving Pictures

We spent Thanksgiving with Alycia's family up in the countryside of Cavalier, North Dakota.  As always, there was a fantastic collection of delicious Thanksgiving treats. The pie lineup alone was impressive.
Pumpkin, pumpkin, cherry, pecan, mini-pumpkin, apple.  I made their acquaintance later that day and they seemed quite content to make my acquaintance as well. 
We've got a picture like this from every dinner we've had at the Cavalier Estate.  After dinner for people is snacks for dogs time.  Previously mischievous pups suddenly remember their manners and recall how to sit nicely when there are gooey bits of warm turkey to be handed out.
Tito the four legged pre-wash cycle helps out by cleaning off a dinner plate.

Now that's a line-up of pies, wow. How to choose just one to maintain your youthful figure? Impossible. I think you are completely justified to sample each of them, after all, can't hurt any cook's feelings, right?

Love the pre-wash cycle on the dishwasher, I have two of those here, too.

Youthful figure? I don't even know what that is anymore. The simultaneous worst and best part is the leftovers that we get sent home with. I challenge anybody to stay on a healthy eating regimen when they have an apple pie, a pumpkin pie, and a pot of coffee standing by.

That pie lineup looks exactly like the one my family builds back home!

I was very impressed with the pie line up. Cheesecake was the only dessert at my house, I would have liked the apple. My dogs used to love the holidays. They always knew what to expect too, bowls filled with all the turkey scraps after the cleaning.
