Thankful.

I have so many things to be thankful for.

Psalm 136:26
Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

I’ve spent today preparing for the tomorrows festivities. I’ve made pecan pie, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole.

The pecan pie is the only thing I’ve tasted so far, and it’s delicious! Here’s the recipe if you’d like to make one for yourself. Of course, it’s loaded with corn syrup, but once a year is okay, right? It’s totally worth it.

Happy thanksgiving!

Delicious Southern Pecan Pie

3 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place pie shell in a 9 inch pie pan.
In a medium bowl, gently beat eggs. Stir in sugar and flour, then the syrup, butter and vanilla. Fold in pecans. Pour mixture into pie shell. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes; knife inserted in center of pie should come out clean.
