I hope everyone has been enjoying stuffing their bellies full of sustenance.   My day has been full of traditions.

And I am going to share with you my favorite Thanksgiving tradition:

Eating Pie For Breakfast

Every Thanksgiving it is tradition in the Burton household to start the day off with Pie.  Each person gets to pick their own pie.  Then we all share our pies with each other.  And as we stuff our pie holes, we watch the parade.  That’s it.  That’s our tradition.   Aaron and I go to my parents house to join in.

Due to my cinnamon allergy, I can’t have most pies.  So my request this year was an Eclair Dessert.  It is the dish in the top left corner.  Let me tell you how to make it:

-Mix a big box of vanilla or white chocolate pudding with 1 1/2 C milk and an 8 oz tub of Cool Whip
-After the pudding sets, place a layer of graham crackers on the bottom of your pan, and layer pudding, graham crackers, pudding graham crackers.
-Frost a can of chocolate frosting on the top layer of graham cracker.
-Refrigerate overnight

It tastes like Heaven.

Now that an adequate amount of thanks have been given, and we have expressed gratitude for the things we have, let’s get pushy and do some shopping!

    I love this! I adore pie. We do something in our family called pie night. We have a night (either the day after or the day before) where we just get together and eat pie. We started it because you are usually too full to enjoy the pie on Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing
