My Thanksgiving tradition

When I was around 7-years-old my mother asked me what I wanted for Thanksgiving dinner. Without batting an eye I said, "Chocolate cream pie." She said, "That's not a Thanksgiving dish!" I told her she'd asked and that's what I wanted. We've had chocolate cream pie at Thanksgiving every year since then and it's always a favorite. Now I make the pie myself. I've even introduced my in-laws to it; I don't think they've embraced it as a new tradition yet but it was definitely a hit, including the all-important associated tradition of having leftover pie for breakfast the next morning.

What's your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?


  1. the pie looks yummy! our family tradition is the smoked meats; my dad smokes a turkey, brisket, and pork loin and they are all so good! Happy Thanksgiving :)

  2. thanks a lot peggy!! now i am TOTALLY craving chocolate pie! haha, seriously, i may need to get one now... hope your t-giving was so happy!

  3. I would be ever so thankful for a pie like that!!

    I make fresh apple cake from Eric's mothers recipe. She has been gone a long time but that seems to be special to him.

  4. We don't do it anymore, but I always used to break the wishbone from the turkey with my sister. She ALWAYS won.

    That chocolate pie looks DIVINE! Man - I'm starving now!
