Gluten free Thanksgiving

Those of us in the USA are getting ready for Thanksgiving. Sorry to have missed wishing Rosey and other Canadian friends a happy one back in October. I spent most of the morning trying to make Gluten free graham crackers. Good grief! It took forever, and then are 1 thumb up, not 2. Going to make a key-lime pie tomorrow to go over the river & through the woods with to a friend's house on the other side of town. At least we don't have to drive through ice and snow, just rain here and there. I'll post my best receipe at the end of the page in case anyone is interested. I've bought bottled "Nellie & Joe's Key west line juice" instead of trying to find fresh, it's the wrong time of the year. To keep myself involved in the quilt world, even though I can't do any quilting right now, I voluntered to be a "drop off" and collection point for the quilt mules for N.E. Florida. The ladies traveling from Tampa, etc. can call me and I'll collect quilts for presentation, or finishing. This is for the Quilt of Valor program. At least I can see other people's quilts and meet some nice quilters in the next few months. KEY LIME PIE--I have 4 different ways--they are mostly the same except one uses 3 egg yokes, one 4, the other 5. I don't put meringue on it, but if someone wanted to it would be a way to use up the egg whites. 1/2 c. key lime juice 4 egg yolks 1 can (14 oz. sweetened condensed milk) Grated lime rind or thin lime slices for garnish (can leave out) Combine milk, key lime juice, and egg yokes. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into graham cracker lined pie shell Bake at 350 for 15 minutes Allow to stand at room temp. before refrigerating. Cool in refrigerator overnight, or for at least 4 hours. May top with whipped cream or lime slices. Sara in Florida who wishes all a happy Thanksgiving!
