    Do enjoy your Thanksgiving. Mine has been quite peaceful and lovely.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving. We don’t celebrate it here in the Uak but I remember those delicious pumpkin pies. Thank you for your lovely blog.

    1. Thanks Bridget! I enjoyed some tasty pumpkin pie. And a bit of key lime pie, and a bit of chocolate cream pie, too. Still full this AM!

      1. Do you have a favorite flavor?

      2. We don’t get key lime pie here very often so I think that’s my favourite. On the other hand….I like them all! No wonder you are full. I’m not a great cook but I do make a very good Summer Pudding. Line a pudding basin (not too large but not sure of American measures, here about 2 pints)with stale white bread, stew a mixture of summer soft fruits..blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, red currants, bleckcurrents, blueberries, gooseberries, (anything that comes to hand) until just cooked, with plenty of sugar so that you get some juice, pour some of the juice over the bread, fill the centre with the fruit, top with more slices of bread, place a plate and a weight on top and put in the fridge overnight. Then the exciting part is to upturn it onto a plate and hope it doesn’t collapse! You should end up with a perfect purple dome. Serve with cold thick cream or fromage frais. Its easy when you know how but I’m afraid I haven’t explained it very well. It’s an old country recipe….probably very economical to make at one time. I expect you could find a picture and better recipe if you Google Summer Pudding! Do you make sherry trifle at Christmas?

      3. I could follow your Summer Pudding description, good details. Now, I haven’t made a Sherry Trifle so I googled both desserts to check out more ingredients, etc. The sherry dessert is decadent, definitely a great holiday choice. Thanks for the new options to try.

      4. Good luck. There are dozens of versions of trifle…some more decadent than others.
