"My heartfelt thanksgiving message to everyone this year," wrote Stewart on Instagram while updating fans on her holiday plans
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Stewart shared that she was busy "prepping to bake thirty pies" and getting ready to cook a "stuffed and roasted 20-pound organic, heritage bird" to help with her friend Stephen Sill's "buffet."
She explained that she was preparing an assortment of pie flavors that included pecan, chocolate pecan, and pumpkin pies. The post included a sneak peek of her baking process.
"My colossal chocolate turkey, crafted using my giant antique turkey mold, did not survive storage since October, crumbling into itself. I am melting the chocolate and using it for the chocolate pecan pies," wrote Stewart alongside a photo of a chocolate turkey.
The entrepreneur said she was no longer hosting people at her home "due to guest cancellations and new travel plans."
Apart from helping with her friend's feast, she will also keep busy by working on her garden, which she said includes planting 75 peonies and digging up "hundreds of other peonies for relocation."
"Leaves are systematically being blown and composted, compost is being spread atop all the flower beds, and burlap coats are being made to cover the hundreds of boxwood shrubs for the cold winter ahead," she explained.
As for her daughter Alexis Stewart, she said that Alexis and Alexis' two children — Jude, 12, and Truman, 11 — will be "flying off to California to visit as many of the giant redwoods and metasequoias as possible for three days."
Stewart invited fans to send photos of their Thanksgiving meals for a future post on her website and ended her update by asking her fans to "hope and pray for peace."
"I hope that soon we will see an improvement in our world's affairs and that there will be some resolution regarding the Ukraine-Russian conflict and the Israeli-Palestinian war that is harming so many. Our world needs some good news — its people need respite from political, environmental, and social conflicts," she wrote.
