Today was pie day.
For the past 20 years I’ve used the “Autumn Pumpkin Pie” recipe from the October 1987 issue of Southern Living magazine. I found the recipe reproduced online here.
Yes, in addition to pre-made pie crust I am using canned pumpkin.
I used to make pie crust from scratch all the time. But the Pillsbury ready-to-use pie crusts are, in my opinion pretty darn good. So they are my Thanksgiving timesaver.
Here’s the pie ready to go in the oven.
And here it is coming out — showing why I love this recipe so much — the topping! YUM.
In addition to my culinary exploits today, I managed to finish the first of my Cable and Lace Socks.
It has tiny cables running up the sides.
And a lace pattern up the front.
Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the U.S. I won’t be posting. But I want to say that I’m thankful that you all stop in here to visit and comment and tell Lucy how adorable she is.
Wake me up when she starts messing with the turkey.
