A Bit of Pie…

Every year on Thanksgiving Eve we have a little get-together to eat pie. I know, it seems like overkill to eat pie two nights in a row. But we love pie and can’t seem to get enough of it.

Banana Cream Pie. No recipe, just step-by-step photos. Here’s a recipe that’s similar.


Blueberry Pie. Shared by my sister. I took this photo way back in 2007.


Winter Squash Pie with whole wheat crust.

Some scrumptious pies from other bloggers:

:: Georgie Peach Pie via honey & jam ::

:: Mini Pumpkin Pies via A Food Lover’s Journey ::

:: Lemon Meringue Pie via bron marshall ::

:: Pear, Honey and Ginger Slab Pie via Shoots and Roots ::

Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and make sure to eat plenty of pie!
