While perusing my cabinets the other day, I came across several cans of pumpkin pie stuff. Remembering in the past how nice and comforting pumpkin pies are, I decided to try my hand at it.
I checked the label and it appeared I had all the necessary ingredients. So I stoked the stove for 400 and something degrees and proceeded to make a pumpkin pie.
When the slurry was ready to pour, I realized it was more than what I needed for a pumpkin pie. Luckily, I had three graham cracker pie crusts which enabled me to make three pumpkin pies. But if you ever made such a pie, it is often the case you have to cook it much longer than what the instructions say. I remember Terese had to cook one for 90 minutes!
So, I kept cooking it until the center did not stick to a stick that I stuck in it. But, then it ended up cooking too long. The pies were over-cooked, but not burnt. I ate one of the pies right away, gave one to Camila to take home to her family and took the other to work, where I ate most of it. Below is the trio before consumption.As an aside note, I am planning to have a Wingfest in my diminutive apartment this Sunday, and I am only inviting those who live in the same apartment complex. I expect there will be less than 10 people, plus a baby. In my invitation, I explained I have an incredible 900 year old mother who loves pictures of the people I interact with, so I will be taking pictures. So far, I have heard no complaints.
Okay, unless something more interesting comes up, I will see you again next week. In the meantime, kick butt and grasp another adventure.

If you keep on trying new recipes I think I’ll put an apron on you and add you to my kitchen. I do like pumpkin pie.
Try a cobbler.I’ll walk you thru it. It’s my favorite.
Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie. Ronnie and Stone don’t like it, nor do my in-laws, so I rarely have it at Thanksgiving. I feel guilty making an entire pie just for myself. But at least now I could do that, and if anyone gives me grief, I can say, “Well, at least I only made one for myself to eat, and not three.”
