This is probably my favorite post I do all year.

love giving away a couple Butterball turkey checks every year before Thanksgiving.I really have no idea why but I look forward to this post all year.

I think the turkey represents Thanksgiving for me and I love feeling like I can be a part of your Thanksgiving meal. It’s pretty cool. So whoever wins, send me pictures of your Thanksgiving meal!

Butterball’s theme for this year is #TBT (Throwback Thursday – but we’re doing it on Tuesday)! So I’m sharing a couple of my fave Thanksgiving #TBT photos!

This one is from 2007. It’s my lovely grandma and my first baby on his first Thanksgiving. We haven’t had Thanksgiving in our hometown in, maybe, 5 years now and every year I stalk Facebook and Instagram waiting for photos of the family.

Plus, how fun is baby’s first Thanksgiving? They eat ALL THE FOOD.

This one isn’t much of a #TBT but last year my husband came home from his second deployment ON Thanksgiving. In the middle of the day! So I did all the prep work for the meal in the morning and then we managed to pull it all together by dinner time!

I thought I’d share this Apple Cranberry Streusel Pie today, too! I made it twice last week. The first time, it didn’t cut nicely. It didn’t the second time either but it’s so good that I’ll forgive it.

Yes, I’m admitting that my family ate 2 entire cranberry apple pies last week.

It happens.

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. To make the streusel, combine flour, 6 tablespoons llight brown sugar, oats and cinnamon. Stir in melted butter until mixture is crumbly; set aside.
  3. Roll pie crust on lightly floured surface to an 11-inch circle. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold excess crust at edge under. Press dough together on rim to form a thick crust edge. Form a decorative edge using fingers, fork or other utensil.
  4. Combine apples, cranberry sauce, remaining 3/4 cup light brown sugar and cornstarch. Spoon apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle with streusel.
  5. Bake about 1 hour, or until apples are tender. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
