Early Thanksgiving in Florida

There's so much to be grateful for in my world...Ryan (almost son-in-law) and Molly (almost step daughter) have returned from Germany where Ryan was deployed to Iraq. They came to visit last week and we had a glorious early Thanksgiving in Florida.
Now to the food--desserts are my favorite and I had three great ones this year. I did my apple cake from classic. Then I adapted a pecan pie recipe to include my homemade kahlua--awesome. And finally, made as an afterthought for Henry's son and debuting as the hit of the meal---PUMPKIN PARFAIT. So light and refreshing and easy--make up a box of butterscotch pudding, add half a can of pumpkin, 1.5 teaspoon of pumpkin spice, half a tub of cool whip. Layer pumpkin mixture with cool whip and crushed ginger snaps in dessert glasses and voila.
So even though we're eating leftovers (lovely turkey vegetable soup) we'll be celebrating again with Friends on Thursday. Life is good and I'm so grateful.
