more pics from thanksgiving
We had a fun and family oriented, simple, potluck style Thanksgiving. I have a smallish, single wall oven, so oven space is really at a premium. Here's what we do: my mom heats up her dishes thoroughly at her home in her own oven, then transports them in a cooler lined with thick towels and pieces of cardboard (the cardboard is used to separate the layers of dishes). It works great, and the food arrives hot. I'm not sure how long you can hold food this way, but I'm guessing about an hour or so.
I made three pies this year, simply out of the love of pie: apple with crumb topping, traditional pumpkin, and Toll House. Yes, this messed up my diet, because I am impossible around the leftovers. Fortunately, they are all gone now.
Me and Faith. It was really fun having her home from college.

I can't believe December is nearly upon us and we only have three more weeks of school and then another vacation!
