We had a lovely Thanksgiving.
I hope you all our there had a great one too!

Krissy came over and enjoyed the day with us as well.

We had a delicious ham, mashed taters, gravy,
baked yams, green bean casserole, a veggie & rice dish,
stuffing, rolls, green fluff (otherwise know as pistachio pudding),
and pumpkin pie.

It's a good thing I made two pies because I dropped one.

Who knew that my cake curse would carry over to pies too?

Cake curse you say, yes it's true, I'm not allowed to carry
cakes ANYWHERE at my house.

See it started about 15 years ago when I purchased a cake
for my Daddy's birthday. We had went out for dinner at
a nice restaurant and then back to our house for cake.
I was carrying it in and was about two feet from the table when
I dropped it. The plastic lid flew off and it landed frosting side
down on the carpet. OOh, it was a mess!

From then on I'd drop at least one cake a year until
my hubby said no more cake carrying for you.
Even here at home I can't even remove them from the oven,
cuz I will somehow manage to have it slip from my
fingers into the oven or on the floor.

But I have to say I never had this problem with pies till now!

What is up with that?

Wow Kellie, I never known that about I'm scared! You know with all that canning you do with HOT food, I'm surprised you having dropped a canning jar of hot salsa!!!!

I'm glad you had a fun Thanksgiving day.

I've never heard of a cake curse before but that sounds like a doozy. You could be on funny home videos and win $10,000. Tell Cal you can carry cakes as long as he is recording!

So do you have animal friends that cleaned that up for you?

Maybe we need to get you a special cake/pie carrier?
