I LOVE the holidays! Although we won't be going to Spokane for Thanksgiving (we miss you J & Mons!) I'm getting pretty excited for Thanksgiving. Last year my extended family decided to institute an annual Pie Fest and Turkey bowl. We have a family bowling tournament and then after bowling we eat ridiculous amounts of pie.. a pie fest of sorts :) Every female age 18 and over is REQUIRED to bring a home-made pie. I waited til the last minute last year and ended up with a not so impressive pie so this year I decided to start earlier.
A couple weeks ago we went to Sam's club and had a sample of some sweet potato pie and it was SO good! I was suprised because I really don't like pumpkin pie but I craved sweet potato pie all week. So this weekend I decided I ought to practice and attempted a sweet potato pie. I didn't take a picture but all those who partook enjoyed thoroughly. My best friend Lexi said it was fabulous and even had a second piece! That's saying something. Needless to say I was pretty proud, and grateful for such great ego stroking friends :) Here's hoping my second one comes out just as tasty.
