This Week

By Terry Golson

Here in the States, it’s the week of Thanksgiving. It’s a big deal, especially for my family. Two sons are coming home. They haven’t been together in this house since last year. That happens when college and work schedules take priority.

We have plans.

Scooter thinks that we should all be doing this:


None of us can sleep as much as Scooter, but we can do this:


I’ll still be getting out on Tonka, daily. Recovery from the sacroiliac inflammation will take many more weeks. We’re still walking in the field, gently introducing hills.


I also make sure he gets time to graze. Fresh grass keeps his gut healthy in the winter. Besides, it makes him happy.


Most of my focus for the next few days, though, will be on PIES. I’ve got about a dozen different varieties to make, and many of those recipes I’ll double. Getting them all done, and perfectly presented for my guests, takes strategic planning. Some crusts and some pies can be made ahead. (I actually like making crusts. See my recipe and directions here.)


But not all pies can be made ahead! I’ve got a busy week coming up.

If you want to know what I do with all of those pies, read this – my Pie Party was written up in Woman’s Day Magazine!

What are you looking forward to this week?

    Hey, Terry!
    I was wondering about your famous Pie Party… then your email dropped into my inbox!
    I’ve just bought a Crown Prince pumpkin and am about to make Pumpkin, Squash and Sweet Potato Soup. When I find the right recipe!
    Enjoy your party preparations!

      I’ve been making soup with those exact ingredients (well, not that specific pumpkin, but close.) I put it all in the slow cooker in the morning, and it’s perfect by evening.

    I attended one of your chicken tours/educational groups at your farm a few years ago, and had some of your delicious cookies. I can only imagine how yummy your pies taste! Thank you for all you do to promote kindness. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

      It’s nice to hear from you! I so appreciate your comment about how I “promote kindness.” I try to be subtle and not lecture, so it’s motivating to me to hear when someone gets my message 🙂

    Just want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving. I always enjoy your blogs. I’m about to click on the link to read what you do with all those pies. Scooter is so precious.
