This was the night of the actual Thanksgiving date, Thursday, November 27.  We had planned to leave for Lonavla on this day, but with the tragedy that was happening at this time, we stayed in.  We roasted a chicken and had mashed potatoes and green beans.  Luckily, we had made pumpkin walnut bars (the recipe has been posted here, and they are so good!), so we had those for dessert.  The day was a somber one, but putting up the tree with two adorable kids is a definite mood lifter.

The spread was yummy—a bit random with hotdogs, but regardless very yummy.

These were our hosts up in Lonavla, Plum and Memaz.  They are like our grandparents away from home, and they treat us like family.  We love these two very much.

Well, it hasn’t been the Thanksgiving we anticipated, but we all remain in good cheer here at the house.  Despite the devastation outside, the kids are happy and excited to have the tree up.  Christmas season is here!  Happy Thanksgiving.  We are so thankful for all of you.

Thanksgiving at Home in Juhu, 2008

This was the night of the actual Thanksgiving date, Thursday, November 27.  We had planned to leave for Lonavla on this day, but with the tragedy that was happening at this time, we stayed in.  We roasted a chicken and had mashed potatoes and green beans.  Luckily, we had made pumpkin walnut bars (the recipe has been posted here, and they are so good!), so we had those for dessert.  The day was a somber one, but putting up the tree with two adorable kids is a definite mood lifter.

Pumpkin Bars

Do you love pumpkin pie? Or do you love pecan pie? Or do you end up going for both because they’re both so good!  If that’s the case, and you’d like the two in one, you gotta try these pumpkin bars.  They are the PERFECT mix of both Thanksgiving favorites: pumpkin pie and pecan pie!

Oat Crust

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Mix the above ingredients and firmly press into an even layer in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

Pumpkin Filling

  • 1 can pumkin puree (15 oz)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Mix all the above ingredients well and pour over the baked crust.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Brown Sugar Topping

  • 2 tbs butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

Mix the above ingredients and sprinkle over the filling.  Bake for 20 minutes more. 

Cool completely (which is really hard—you want to try them) before cutting into bars.

Enjoy the pumpkin pie/pecan pie combo!
