Plenty to be THANKful For - The Blogoverse, The 21st Century, and Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe!

Manic Mother

Since I missed a couple of days last week due to being a little under the weather, I thought I'd do some catching up today.

The Blogoverse -- I am so thankful to have become a blogger...It has allowed me the perfect outlet to express my feelings, and more than anything, it has given me a daily journal that I hope to have for many years to come.  The Blogoverse has also allowed me to find all of these fabulous blogs:

Fitting Into the Windy City...and My Clothes

Nothing Rhymes with Rachel

The 21st Century -- Oh, geez, where to begin with this one...I think there are so many pieces of technology that we can be thankful for, but the top of my list right now is my brand new iPhone.  I seriously don't know what I have done without one for so long...All I can say is that it is by far the coolest piece of technology I own, and I am so glad I got it!

My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe -- Several years ago, I decided to try to follow in my Grandmother's footsteps and make a homemade pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner.  Well, after that one meal, it has become an essential addition every single year!  Here is the EASY, EASY recipe:

Whisk together a 15 oz. can pumpkin, 2/3 cup light brown sugar, 2/3 cup heavy cream, 1/3 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice, an 1/4 tsp. salt.  Bake in a 9 in. refrigerated pie crust at 375 degrees for 55 minutes.  Sprinkle hot pie with 3 chopped milk chocolate-butter toffee bars (such as Skor or Heath; let cool and serve.
