It feels like every year Christmas decorations go up earlier and earlier. This year in particular I feel like we never even got to enjoy Thanksgiving, and it hasn’t even happened yet! Everyone is in such a rush to get to December we haven’t even had a chance to celebrate one of the best holidays. I love Thanksgiving because it’s a day when you can really do nothing except hangout with family, cook, take a nap, and eat lots of pie! Anything that involved napping and eating is something Lucy supports!
My grandmother has always made the very best pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving! It’s a recipe she actually got from her sister that is one layer cheesecake and one layer pumpkin pie filling. It’s so, so good! Last year my grandmother passed the recipe down to me so I now know the secrets behind this family favorite. And since I’m a crazy dog mom, I thought I’d recreate this pumpkin pie recipe for dogs! Why not? To take it to the next level, I also found turkey dog food and bone broth to make into a turkey and gravy entree for my spoiled pup!
These recipes are so incredibly easy, they don’t even involve any cooking! The pie just needs to set in the fridge for a few hours and the turkey and gravy just need hot water. Of course it helps that I started with great ingredients. The cheesecake mix is from Puppy Cake and the turkey and “gravy” (AKA bone broth) are both from The Honest Kitchen. Both companies provided me with complimentary samples of the products, but the Thanksgiving spin is all my own creation. Sometimes all it takes is a little creativity to make a semi-homemade feast!
