Gobble Gobble

Every year there is a lot to be thankful for but this year I am especially happy for two things.  The first is that I have a healthy, active baby boy growing inside of me and he has given me a nice, smooth pregnancy so far.  The second is that Mr. Dr. will be off and we can celebrate a real Thanksgiving dinner together with family.  This is a nice change from last year where I traveled home solo to see my family and came back on the night of Thanksgiving with a plate of leftovers for him to eat at midnight when he got home from work.

Perhaps it’s the lack of cocktails throwing my mind into a tizzy but I also attempted to bake a pie this year.  Hard to believe coming from the girl who didn’t even know if she owned bakeware but we do own it and I used it.  Voila!

Pumpkin pie

Say hello to my first pumpkin pie.  The crust is not homemade and the recipe itself was so simple.  I have no idea if it’s good or not.  Although while it was in the oven the apartment smelled divine and when it came out Mr. Dr. and I really wanted to dive in.  We are holding off though, as bringing a half-eaten pie to Thanksgiving dinner is probably a little lame.  I am sure all dinner attendees would understand if some was missing since I’m eating for me AND the baby but I don’t want to be rude.   I really hope it tastes good or if nothing else, that it’s edible.  Fingers crosses on this one.

A happy & healthy Thanksgiving to you and your families.  Enjoy the food, company and if your partner is working…be thankful that he or she is helping out someone else this Thanksgiving.
