The late Thanksgiving post!

Was Thanksgiving really a week and a half ago? Wow, time flies by fast! I apologize for not posting this sooner, it was on my mind, but life has been quite busy these days. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I did. 🙂

I was able to bake my special Cranberry-Berry Pie (I combined a few recipes together and made my own recipe), and also a Apple-Crumb Pie. I planned to bake a pumpkin pie as well, and I even searched for a recipe. But, then I decided not to do it anymore. It sounded a little complicated (I wanted to use a pumpkin, not a pumpkin from a can), and I also didn’t know how it was going to turn out.  I didn’t mind though because we had store-bought pumpkin pie. 🙂 I also wanted to do the sweet potato casserole, but since I was so busy with the pies, my sister Abby offered to make the casserole, and it was a great relief. Thank you Abby!

Because I was practically baking two pies at a time, I don’t have too many step-by-step pictures. But I have pictures with the end results. I also had help from my sister Lois with cutting the apples. Thank you Lois!

Now for some pictures…
