Yes, pumpkin pie, jello pretezel pie that my roommate's mother made, along with some greek style stuffing ( ground beef, rice, raisins, pine nuts) and heavenly sweet potatos just baked with butter and brown sugar.

Yeah, how could I not? Perfect pumpkin pie from the Pie and Pastry Bible. Not resistable.

Though I'm normally a sweets person, my pie didn't turn out as perfectly as I'd like. So instead I had leftover brussel sprout hash with big chunks of bacon for breakfast. I had a thought of heating it up, but it was so good cold that I couldn't stop.

Ususally, I have pie, along with a bowl of cranberry chutney. This year, I had a breakfast thing with family, so we went out early for that.

When I got home, I had pie. Waffles, sausage, and pecan pie for dessert. Lunch will be stuffing with turkey shreds, and cranberry chutney.

No pie here. We had pumpkin sticky toffee pudding yesterday and I'll have more of it later today. This morning's breakfast was was turkey and a little glippy-glop of cranberry/cherry compote on a fluffy yeast roll. (My rolls rocked this year!) A cold glass of milk just hit the spot with it.

Pumpkin pie for breakfast and I'm about to get another piece right now. Turkey and white bean stew for dinner tonight.

No leftovers, no pie. (Leftovers stayed with the hosts.) Oatmeal, if you can believe it, for breakfast.

Leftover Brussels Sprouts with butter and Parm. I think these were the best sprouts I have ever eaten, tiny, tender, and sweet.

My daughter bought a whole stalk at a farm stand so there are enough left for two or three meals.

Honey, I have been known to cut and eat the pie for breakfast ON Thanksgiving, before the turkey.

Yes, I had pie for breakfast.

In my house, a 9-inch pie serves four, or two twice. Which is what we did. And it was superior this year, an incredible silky texture brought on by unhomogenized organic dairy ingredients (milk and cream).

What I want to know, gfron, is what is a sugar cream pie? Can I have a recipe? Please?

No pie for me. Someone hid the pie the day after (we had our Thanksgiving on Saturday), and I actually forgot we had pie until just now. Hmmm...it's time for an afternoon snack...

We didn't have pie for breakfast the morning after, simply because we didn't have access to pie. We'd been at my mother's for Thanksgiving and we didn't take home any leftovers because we were heading out of town for two days (we picked up the leftovers Sunday morning and have been making up for lost time, however).

But on Friday night we visited some friends in Connecticut, and they had so much pie in their house that I feared the sheer quantity of pie would create a rip in the space-pie continuum -- a pie wormhole or other pie singularity. There must have had ten pies, only a couple of which had even been started on Thanksgiving. There were homemade pies, store-bought pies and farm-stand pies. There were three species of pecan pies, a couple of pumpkin pie variants, a coconut cream pie and a bunch of other pies. Had we consumed any more pie we surely would have required treatment at a tertiary care center.

I think I heard the space-pie continuum rip when Duck uttered the words, "I actually forgot we had pie."

Blaspheme.
