Happy Thanksgiving From Pennsylvania!

We have arrived at our camping destination. It’s gorgeous, but a bit more rustic than we were hoping for. We have to be available by cell phone and internet for the numerous phone calls and paperwork involved in buying a house.

We did some research today with the small amount of internet service we were able to get and have decided that we’ll leave here on Sunday and head into NH to camp. The campground, if you can call it that, that we’re in right now is quiet and gorgeous, but as my husband said this morning, “it feels like we’re camping in a hillbilly’s backyard.” No offense to hillbillys, of course. Their winter spots are right off the road and there’s no cell phone service, minimal internet, no laundry, and if Tony has to travel for work, I don’t really want to be out in the middle of nowhere if we have a water or heat issue.

Vodka bottle as rolling-pin.

Paper towel as pastry brush.

Improvisation is good for the soul.

You can find my gluten free stuffing recipe here, and my rustic tart recipe here. Enjoy!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving and have been able to spend it with at least one or two of your loved ones. Blessings to you.

    • We are finally able to get a bit here and there. Evidently Pennsylvania is not known for it’s great cell and internet service. lol I was surprised I could download pictures!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you! I’m so impressed that you were able to not only improvise but also create such a fabulous looking dessert in such difficult conditions. The campsite does look beautiful. The scenery is gorgeous but I can understand you not wanting to be so isolated when all alone – thank goodness for Romeo and Abigail xx


    • I was just thinking yesterday how thankful I am for both of them. Some people might think it silly, but I am finding that they are bringing a bit of “normal” to our crazy lives right now!


  2. Good morning darling girl, it does look like the kind of place you want to go when on a Getaway-from-it-all kind of vacation. certainly not for a longer than usual stay AND into the winter.. the thing about having a house on wheels though is that you can wander about until you find somewhere that you like. AND now you will start house hunting.. sigh.. well surely it cannot be as bad as House SELLING.. have a lovely day in the wilderness.. c


  3. Many years from now you will look back on this time fondly. 😉 I have wanted to make a similar tart and didn’t think it possible with a GF crust! Getting out my kitchen tools!!! Thank you, April.
