Oh yuck--mince pie! I always hated it. Both grandmothers would bake one.
As a coincidence, yesterday for the first time ever, I had some raisins and dried cranberries as a snack. Just a hint of sweetness. Pretty good.

I've decided not to have fowl of any kind for Thanksgiving. Instead, I'm having a freezer ham. Not traditional, but with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, etc., it'll be marvelous, simply marvelous!

I just vaugly remember mince pie.  I think I liked it.

I'm doing nothing special for Thanksgiving day.  I'm going shopping before then and will probably get another pumpkin pie and some more of what I'm eating right now: pumpkin pie ice cream.  Yum!

Other than raisin cookies, I'm not a fan of any dried fruit.  I'll eat a dried bannana chip once in a while, but only once in a while.

Talk of raisins reminds me of a scene in the 1993 movie "Benny & June". Sam is played by Johnny Depp.

Sam: You don't like raisins? 

Joon: Not really. 

Sam: Why? 

Joon: They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.

Carl, I didn't like raisins by themselves, even when I was young, but Mom made fat cookies that had a raisin puree in the center.  Don't know what else she added, but I loved those.  It's been many years since I've had chocolate covered raisins, but I think I like them also.

Hmmm. Perhaps buying/cooking a Cornish game hen isn't such a good idea after all! Since I can't find one, I reckon it doesn't matter. I'm sure a small fryer will do just as well. I'm eating alone.

I will prepare all the standard Thanksgiving foods--need I list them? Looking forward to it!

The last Cornish hen I bought was tough & stringy.....haven't purchased any since.

As far as I can find most pawpaws are import, and here grown in greenhouses.

Daniel, did plant your pawpaw trees or were they naturally there on your property?  I don't think your area would get much colder than the eastern parts of the US where they are most abundant, so perhaps you'll have some luck getting fruit one of these years.

Chris, are the pawpaws you eat locally grown in the Netherlands?

Wikipedia says they taste like a combination of banana and mango.  That sounds good to me!  And yes, they are very healthy to eat.

Spud, I've always liked raisins.  When I was a little kid I used to knock on the door of a nice neighbor three houses down because she would give me one of those little tiny boxes of Sun-Maid Raisins, the kind some people give out at Halloween.  And of course I love chocolate-covered raisins, too!
