And Now… The REST of the Story

25 11 2008

The pumpkin pie fiasco was insane and tiresome. So much so, I’m just now writing about it in a Livejournal community known as Super_Supper. Today, I finally posted the complete story. It’s not every gory detail, but it’s close enough.

My First Pumpkin Pie, as told by me. ^_^ I Tried to throw in as much humor as I could. At the time, it wasn’t funny at all. I was pretty frusterated, tired, and sick of the color orange. I can laugh about it now, though.

Feel free to try my recipe if you’re feeling bold. Heck, I’ll give you the pumpkin puree to do it with if you’ll come get it or meet me halfway, lol! Just remember, this was my first pie and my first guess-and-check recipe. Proceede with caution, and I shall answer any/all questions to the best of my abbility.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


Cooking With Pumpkins

10 11 2008

I am making a pumpkin pie… from scratch. I’ve declared war on that gaint pumpkin. We werstled all the way up and down the counter, but I cut it in half. I gutted it with a metal ice cream scoop and a steak knife. There was a mighty struggle, but we finally called truce when one forth of it was cut into chunks and tossed into a kettle of water to boil until tender.

I’m up to my elbows in pumpkin boogers and I’m pretty sure I’ve got seeds in my hair somewhere… but by golly, we WILL have pie.
