    It’s super easy and I never really follow a recipe, but there are plenty of them out there.

    Roast your butternut squash then throw it in the food processor with a splash of milk to get a nice, smooth texture then add it back to the roux/cheese blend. I cut the amount of cheese I normally use by about half. Gouda and gruyere go really well with it, as do nutmeg and sage. Then just bake as normal.

    We’re doing a small (6 person) Thanksgiving, and as such, oyster dressing was nixed from the menu which is a major bummer.

    pecan is the best and only pie that I really crave, there is a bakery in Arkansas my family got it from for every Thanksgiving until I was a full blown in my 30s adult. now I have Thanksgiving with my wife's (Ohio) yankee asses and they don't get pecan pie.

    and I *do not* fucking bake.

    it's a more intricate type of chess pie than the original, making it literally more difficult and having more steps.

    Was a boom town at one time. My parents left in 1981, but we still bought Willy’s pies until about 5-6 years ago.

    went back last year to lay my grandmother to rest and couldn’t believe they sold beer.
