If We Were Having Coffee

I wish we were having coffee this morning because I have several things that I want to share with you.
First of all, have you ever tasted an Ambrosia apple?
Oh my goodness. They are delicious. 
I will be baking a flat apple pie for Thanksgiving , using Granny Smith apples, but I  am
going to use Ambrosia apples for our fruit salad.
One of our other favorite desserts at Thanksgiving is a carrot cake, which is my husband’s favorite.
And finally, after 40 weeks of Thoughts of Home on Thursday,
it is time to bring that wonderful party to an end.
I know I speak for all of the hostesses when I say how thankful I am that we shared our Thursdays
with you this year.
You have each made this such a rewarding experience.
We hope you feel that way too.

Susan Freeman said...

I want to try your flat apple pie! I am sorry that you have decided to bring the Thoughts of Home party to an end. I do understand how much work it is, and life does come first. Thank you for all the effort you put into making the party a wonderful one.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Well I'd love to have a piece of that carrot cake with some coffee. We could talk about all the super early mornings and fabulous entries at Thoughts of Home. :)

Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering!!

Simply LKJ said...

Oh my, now I am craving carrot cake! YUM!! Will miss TOHT. Loved all the inspiration you ladies brought us.

Thank you Laura, for all the fun weeks of TOHOT!

I've never had flat apple pie before - I'll have to google it!

Carrot cake is a favorite of my husband's too!

Lea @ CiCis Corner said...

Sounds like a great meal in the works to me. I've never had an ambrosia apple but may have to try them now. Happy rest of the week!!!

I don't think I have ever eaten an Ambrosia apple. They do sound good though. I love Honey Crisps, too, but we have a hard time getting them here sometimes. Your flat pies look good!!

I bet it will be kind of a relief to end the linky party in some ways. I know they are a lot of work and I have heard from others that they knew when it was time to let it go. Less work over the holidays, too.

Hope you have a great week. xo Diana

Thank you, Laura, and all the other ladies too. The Thoughts of Home weekly party was fun. I will miss it.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I have never heard of flat apple pie! This looks cool. As for the carrot cake, I love carrot cake and am always looking for new recipes. !

Theresa said...

I have never tasted an ambrosia apple, OR the flat apple pie! LOOKS delicious! Have a blessed day dear Laura, BIG HUGS!

Jeanie said...

These look so wonderful! And I love carrot cake too. Yours is beautiful.

I will miss all the wonderful linking from TOHOT but I understand how complicated it can be to pull of something like this every week (and probably feel somewhat compelled to visit them all in your role as host). Life's crazy -- and this season of busy is right on us.

But you have a loyal follower in me, Ms. Laura -- I'm not going anywhere! So, see you next post!

Oh i would ever love a slice of that cake! But I will settle with my peanut butter cookies this morning. LOL! Happy Thanksgiving sweet lady! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Cecilia said...

I appreciate all of the hard work you put into the weekly party. Sometimes there just comes a time to move on. So here's to the next chapter!

As for your Apple pie...oh my! Looks so good! I can't wait for Thanksgiving when I can and will indulge! Hope your week is going well!

Boy does that carrot cake look good. So sorry Thoughts of Home party is coming to an end. It was my favorite link party. Have a good week.

Laura, I will miss Thoughts of Home, but so glad to have met you and all of the other sweet ladies. I have ambrosia apples on my list! Your desserts look heavenly ;) Also, for some reason the comments you leave on my blog are not going to my email, so thank you for your kind comments. In the future, if I don't respond, it's only because I didn't catch it! Hugs, Cecilia

Laura, I'll miss Thoughts of Home! You and the other hostesses were the most encouraging and interactive of any weekly party I've participated in. If it weren't for the party, I wouldn't have known several of you... so glad for that! :) Thanks for the time you've put into the party for the past 40 weeks! And your apple desserts... oh my... they look divine! ~Rhonda
