Show us your life... Our Favorite Thanksgiving foods...

Of course we have the traditional turkey and cornbread dressing, smashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry relish, pumpkin pie, pecan pie and rolls. But our ABSOLUTE faves are Buttermilk pie and Scalloped Pineapple, YUM!!!!! This is only the second year since our precious Rachel and my sweet daddy passed away. Therefore, the holiday is still a bit bittersweet. We have so much to be thankful for as a family but most especially thankful to know that one day we will see them both... Thank you Jesus!!!

Scalloped Pineapple
(my daddy's fave)


2 cups sugar
3 eggs well beaten
1 cup margarine (2 sticks cut into pieces, I use butter, the REAL thing)
1- 20 oz can crushed pineapple
4 slices of bread (cut into 1" squares)
Mix together well. Bake for 30 minutes at 300°

Buttermilk Pie
