It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
I LOVE autumn and everything that comes with it! Yes, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I wish people would not rush us into Christmas. I do enjoy Christmas, but I want to enjoy Thanksgiving first.
The lyrics to Brandon Heath’s song, “The Day After Thanksgiving”, says it perfectly:
There's still plenty of leaves
Golden on the trees
Hoodies, blue jeans and football
Bonfires and school nights
Scarecrows and hayrides
It's fall everywhere except the mall
I don't want to hear about Santa Claus coming
No silver bells or a dozen drummers drumming
I don't want to see an inflatable nothing
Till the day after Thanksgiving
(And not a day early)
There are more great lines to this song. You can search this song online for yourself and join in on my November theme song. 😄
Now that you know how I feel about rushing into Christmas (lol), I want to share with your my favorite pecan pie recipe. No Thanksgiving is complete without pecan pie. It is a classic dessert and one of my favorites!
How to Make My Favorite Pecan Pie
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 heaping cup pecans
Combine sugar, corn syrup, salt, butter, and vanilla; mix well. Add slightly beaten eggs. Fold in pecans. Pour into a 9-inch unbaked pie crust. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes.
