Thanksgiving is a time to remember all the good things we have in our lives. Family and friends join together to treasure and share those thoughts and blessings. Then we eat food.

The main course is always important. Depending on where you live and the type of people you are feeding, the Thanksgiving menu may vary. What ties those people together throughout the festivities after the main event is dessert. What dessert is synonymous with Thanksgiving? Pie.

Maybe help guests feel welcome by trying a pie they used to have where they came from. Maybe educate people about what kind of pie you remember. Some people go above and beyond by asking their guests what kind of pie they would like to see when they visit.
