making pies

For the first time in a couple of years, I didn't have to work the day before Thanksgiving, which meant I got to return to one of my favorite personal traditions: Pie-a-palooza. For reasons I cannot completely explain, this particular holiday compels me to bake pies. Some are for our own enjoyment, and we share them as well. I managed to knock out nine of them today: two sweet potato, two pumpkin, two pecan, two brown sugar buttermilk, and one blueberry (Ginger's favorite). As I worked, I couldn't help but hum one of my favorite Patty Griffin songs, "Making Pies," about a woman who worked at the Tabletop Pie Company in Worcester, Massachusetts. May you have a joyful and thankful day.

Hi Milton,

On this day devoted to thanksgiving, I wanted to let you know that one of the things I am thankful for is you and your words. I'm a longtime reader - since your Massachusetts days. Thank you for letting me share your faith journey and for accompanying mine.

Brown sugar buttermilk pies? Never heard of it, but sounds delicious!
Thank you for sharing of yourself and your experiences for all these years...
