PIES FOR THANKSGIVING
Most Thanksgivngs our family has at least a half a pie per person. Pie was my dad's favorite dessert ever. We all bring a dish to share and in addition one or two pies each. It is a bit pie crazy and we love to have pie for breakfast the next morning after Thanksgiving. My mouth is watering just thinking about my favorite pie;
This photo is from Google. It is so like the pies we have on turkey day.
I am sharing the family recipe with you today.
My Grandmother's Sour Cream Raisin pie
My pie is a family tradition and so easy.
My grandmother's recipe
1 cup raisins
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sugar
1 pinch of salt
350 degrees 40 - 45 minutes.
The crust will be 'barely' browned. DO NOT OVERBAKE
My friend Beverly at, How Sweet the Sound, would give almost anything to have a piece of this pie.
TRADITIONAL FAMILY HOLIDAY FRUIT SALAD
NOW FOR THE TRADITIONAL SALAD RECIPE

This is my photo from last years Thanksgiving dinner.
Quantities of the ingredients are all according to how much you want in the salad.
canned pineapple pieces
seedless grapes, cut in half
walnuts, cut up but not small
marshmallows, baby kind ( about two cups)
bananas, sliced (at least two)
Apples, cut up with skins on ( as many as you like or as few as two)
The dressing is home made whipped cream (1 pint)

This salad always ends up bigger than planned...Smiling
GOOD LUCK AND PREPARE TO BE IN FRUIT SALAD LOVE.
