And these denim ones are my favorite because they have a story. I love a good story. One day I was in Goodwill looking around because it was half-price day :-). I never go on the curtain/bedspread row because, well, I never need things like that. But, for some reason, this particular day I stumbled upon that row. Lo and behold what did I find? Denim Curtains! Whoda thunk? There were actually three sets of floor-length denim curtains, Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren brands. Do you realize how much fabric is in curtains? -faint- Lots and lots and lots. And they were $7 a pair! Woohooo!!!! So I used the factory hem for the hem of the pants (how easy~peasy is that?!) and for the pockets!

And later, dessert... chocolate cake, pecan pie, chess pie (Tony's request, I've never made it or eaten it before... too bad it's soooo good!), and Miss Alma brought pumpkin pie! YUMMY!
And now for the recipe I promised.... too bad Molly didn't get a picture of it it all of it's yumminess!!
MOMYS Southern Peach Yam Bake (p 133)
2 29 oz cans sweet potatoes
1 29 oz can peaches
1 c brown sugar
1 c pecans
6 T flour
1 t nutmeg *
2 T butter
2 c mini marshmallows *
Drain sweet potatoes and peaces and place in casserole dish.
Stir together brown sugar, flour and nutmeg.
Cut in butter.
Add pecans and sprinkle mixture over sweet potatoes and peaches.
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Sprinkle on marshmallows and broil until toasted.
*I couldn't find nutmeg (where was it hiding?!) so I used allspice! And I omitted the marshmallows this time. It was very yummy!!!
I wanted to write a long post about Thanksgiving but I can't quite get my thoughts together enough to share without crying.
I do want to publically thank the Lord once again... this Thanksgiving as we gathered around the table I was profoundly impressed with how different things could have been. I am so grateful that there is no empty spot at our table. The Lord not only saw fit to give Luke back to us, He blessed us with Nehemiah.
The Lord is good. His mercy is everlasting. Thank you Lord. Thank you.
