Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a quiet, relaxing Thanksgiving at our house. There was a storm brewing outside but we were all cozy inside and having fun together. After a yummy breakfast (Dutch Baby) we cleaned up a bit and then Daddy and baby had a nap while child watched a movie and I went for a run in the blustery, refreshing weather. After showers, we dressed, took 10 minutes to all run around cleaning the upstairs at the same time, then went downstairs to snack and start cooking the big meal.

I was so excited to make these Harvest Pies. They came out great! 
 Sitting down for our meal.
 Corn Chowder, Harvest Pie, and Brussel sprouts with hazelnuts. Fabulous!
 The Harvest Pies had roasted butternut squash, roasted cranberries, potatoes, onions, carrots, wine, and seasonings. Served in a homemade pie crust with some gravy on the side. (Next year I will make my own gravy, this one wasn't very pleasing.)
 Then the pumpkin pie which was amazing. It has FOUR ingredients in the filling. Cashews, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice.
 It sliced perfectly and beautifully!
We ended the day with a bit of movie-watching and bathtime and an easy bedtime :)
