Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday

I am off to visit with my Dad
He is a monk living at
in Peru Illinois

I am making my dads favorite pie
  strawberry / rhubarb pie

In honor of my mother
I will wear the vintage red rose apron
that I purchased from Jen
at her etsy shop from Country Weekend Blog

here is my mom trying to guard me
from falling out of my high chair
 My mom loved red roses
and we all loved her and miss her
 she always wore an apron
 in the kitchen on 
This is my rose apron for Thanksgiving cooking at the abbey
thanks to Jen for this wonderful apron

I hope I can help out in some way
 in the monks big kitchen.

Dad promised he would meet me
at the abbey doors
with a nice glass of wine for me.
I am so excited to see him again soon !

Have a wonderful time. I love that your Dad is a monk--I have wonderful memories of a couple of abbeys I have visited. So glad the apron connects you with memories of your mom.



ps--that pie looks amazing!
