Old Stone Well Farm

My Frugal Thanksgiving (And a Look at Pilgrim Pumpkin Pie!)

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, but with groceries being so expensive, I decided to try a frugal holiday meal. As I looked around at what I had here at the farm, I realized having “things” or being “happy” aren’t where thankfulness comes from. It comes from knowing that no matter what life brings you, there is always something to whisper our thanks to God.

So come to Vermont for the holidays. I will serve up a real pumpkin pie cooked the 17th-century way…and share some fun Thanksgiving facts with you. And in this season of thanks, I thank you all for your love and support.

To keep the YouTube channel going strong, I would be grateful if you considered subscribing, sharing with friends, liking and adding a comment! I would especially love to hear from you and what you think about living frugally. And what you think about this unique pie that I made. My sister thought is was disgusting. Oh well, more for me!

  1. I have been following you for almost two years and always look forward to your videos and messages. They are so interesting and I have learned a lot. In this time when there is so much rancor in our country and so much need in the world, you remind me of what is really important. We move forward trusting that all will be well. May you and your husband have a wonderful frugal Thanksgiving. Gratefully, Nancy


    • I can’t thank you enough for “finding” me, and I am grateful that you enjoy your time here!!! I really have no clue what God is up to and if I think too much about my journey I get overwhelmed. And so, I need to keep remembering to wake up, be present and follow the God’s tugs on my heart. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and a peaceful Advent season! Blessings, Donna


  2. Thank you for the time and effort that you put unto sharing your life. I am not brave enough to try cooking a pumpkin pie that way but I can appreciate it through your enjoyment of it, You keep me aware that I am not in charge of my life, but God is and I am learning ho w to accept the changes that God has in mind for me asking less and less often “Are you sure that is what you want me doing?”
    Happy Thanksgiving and a meaningful Advent season,
