red seedling

and some pie. today was pumpkin pie making day. home made. fresh yet frozen pumpkin. the part where mr pumpkin gets a case of multiple personality is a separate story. lets just say he gets smaller and gets baked in the oven. scraped off the pumpkin skin measured out and put in the freezer. this is the rest of the story. the pumpkin is put in the blender with some eggs. and yes ignore that ‘canned’ on the recipe. fresh frozen pumpkin. it is then put in a mixing bowl with the rest of ingredients. at that point it is more like pumpkin soup. they are ladled into the pie crusts except for the last ladle. carefully placed on the oven racks and the last ladle added. then the rack is gently slid into the oven. the secret ingredient was added to simplify baking time. the recipe is doubled and we make three batches to get 10 pies. the original recipe makes about 2 pies. i will never go back to other pumpkin pies. even if i don’t have to help prepare them. now about that red seedling…
