Our thanksgiving kickoff started off with pie the night before. My sister-in-law suggested it since we never have enough room for pie, after all pie is the most important part. This got my husband thinking. After finishing our leather covered chair the week prior, Mat had a fabulous idea to make a loin cloth out of the extra leather. Usually it is I who is trying to get him to cross over to the wild side, but this time it was all him.
Here's the invitation that went out to family:
Here is the costume that was born.

Here is the shock on Mat's mom face as she arrived
No warrior couldn't have done it finer! Way to go Stands-With-Loin-Cloth!
Look how serious everyone is taking him. He is just commanding it!
We had Matt and Lindsay's signature stuffed risotto balls--um heaven!
With soups a plenty
And then there was pie....
I attempted to make an ice cream bird, but it sorta looks like a caramel blob. Oh Well! I was too rushed to get into costume.
Everyone did a great job on their pies
and then they were gone
And I'm glad someone was enjoying my somewhat turkey caramel blob
Time well spent
Thanks for coming to Have a Soup Pie
