Thanksgiving Thoughts

My mom is always someone I can count on when it comes to excellent food and baking.  She has been helping me out with this years Thanksgiving pies.  It has been fun making crust with her and learning the tricks that she learned growing up.

We have been talking about her experiences with baking.  It really surprises me how Home Economics has changed over the years.  It has lost a lot of value in schools so there are a lot of schools that don’t even offer it.  Back when she was in Home Economics they would have people from “Pillsbury” and companies like that  teach their tricks of the trade.  She taught me some of them when it comes to pies and it has made me enjoy the whole pie process so much more than before.
