Pie of thanks

My mother’s apple pie is the pie to end all pies. It will be served in heaven. But this year I was invited to make the apple pie for Thanksgiving. My mother will be bringing mincemeat pie. Today I made my apple pie.

Pie of thanksgiving
Thanks to God for making the apple.
Thanks to orchard growers who tend and grow the apples.
Thanks to those who harvest the apples.
Thanks to those who transport them to my local grocery store.
Let’s not forget all the other ingredients – thanks for those.

Thanks to my Mom who makes the very best apple pie.
Thanks to my Dad who taught me how to make those snakes out of the apple skin. He also knows how to make a pig out of a mango seed.
Thanks to both my parents for inspiring me to look for the low-cholesterol pie crust recipe.
Thanks to all my family for eating the pies I have made and for being so enthusiastic and most of all for just being yourselves.
Let’s not forget all the people – thanks for you.

Please tell me you got "Walk a Thousand Miles" from my blog. Please. I can't bear knowing that I chose a song that my mom likes and has discovered on her own.

Beautiful looking pie! I'm sure it tasted great as well. I also made apple pie for Thanksgiving.
