When is a Pumpkin not a Pumpkin for Macro Saturday

 

Pumpkins growing in the field is a beautiful sight at this time of the year.   Yes, pumpkins are used for carving at Halloween but this weekend they will turn into something else.   This weekend, the last weekend before the C word is Canadian Thanksgiving.   This is the time many families put aside their differences and belly up to the table laden with Turkey and Cranberries and Pumpkin pie with whipped cream.   By Monday we are going to feel bloated on account of all those calories that we stuffed into our mouths.    Bring it on!!!!

This pumpkin has no calories.   It is just a pretty little ceramic pumpkin that is sitting on the sideboard in the dining room just to give it the autumn feeling.

This will be the star of the show on Thanksgiving day.   It will be one of a couple.  There are some people at my table who will opt for two pieces.   My oldest son says he is making an apple pie.  I can’t wait to see that.  I know he can do it but will he?   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We expect warm temperatures so get out and enjoy it if you can.  

Join us at Macro Saturday if you have taken a nice close up or a macro.   It is fun to share.   Valerie

Oh boy, what a good looking pie.
I've never tasted a pumpkin pie, because we have no Thanksgiving but I'd like to be at your table this weekend.
The shiny ceramic pumpkin is lovely too.
Happy Thanksgiving!

That pumpkin is MINE! Oh, I have not tasted a pumpkin pie before. And we do not have a thanksgiving day either with turkey and cranberries etc.

I am in deep envy. ;-)

And oh, I enjoyed the ten things you do!

You are just teasing me now with that pie. Pumpkin is my all time favorite pie and that looks divine. I could eat the whole thing myself.

What lovely pumpkins--in the ceramic & pie form! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving...ours won't be til November, but I think having it earlier in the year makes more sense...you can still go out and walk off the calories when it's not so cold out!

Ann said...

The pie looks yummy. I only make them once a year, so hope I can come up with a good one without practice. Nice post!
