2 Pies and a baby

Today I tackled some of my Thanksgiving commitments.  I've never actually made a pumpkin pie before.  So today I did it!  I had pumpkin from last month's pumpkin meat harvest and I made a pie crust with cinnamon in it (a nice thought, but I think this will not make a big difference).  I used the blender to get my pie filling nice and smoooooooth!

The result was a pie that was darker than the usual grocery store pumpkin pie, I hope it tastes amazing!

While I prepped and baked, Ro and Daddy had some fun:

Soon Ethan had to head off to work, so I had to find a suitable kitchen activity for the little one.  Good thing I have a dedicated tupperware cupboard, it works great as a mommy-worry-free zone.

The cupboard's special baby-distracting powers were short lived and she was ready to be cuddled by her mommy.  Of course, I obliged.  How could I resist?


  1. So cute. That pie looks good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Don't you love cooking with actual pumpkin?? I got completely addicted to it last year, and as a result bought WAY too many pie pumpkins this year. I tried something new with my pie crusts this year - apple cider instead of milk! You should try it. The flavor is subtle but so good :) How did your pie turn out?
