Day before Thanksgiving

.....and I am where most people are this evening. In the kitchen. My Mom's side of the family does a big Thanksgiving together. All my aunts take turns hosting at their homes. Everyone is assigned something to bring. My Tia Angie, being the awesome Tia she is, remembered we had a long drive ahead of us for the day and just assigned us soda. So why am I in the kitchen?

Well a few weeks ago PR Dad mentioned someone from his work asked if we wanted some persimmons from a persimmon tree they had. I told him to bring some and when the bag of orange fruit came into my house I had a flash back from when I was a kid and the first time I have ever heard of a persimmon. It was fall and for some party or get together my Tia Angie made persimmon cookies. I had never heard of this fruit before but I remember those cookies being oh so good. Everything my Tia Angie makes is heavenly but years later just the sight of a bag of persimmons made me think of those cookies. I found a recipe on-line (since my Tia no longer had hers) and made a batch.

My family ate then up fast. Since I had some persimmons left over I decided to make a few dozen persimmon cookies for Thanksgiving. So right now, like many homes across the nation, our is filled with the scents of warm Thanksgiving spices.
