I just realized my 10 year blog anniversary was on September 16 with this post about pumpkin pie. I started quilting when I was 70, started the blog when I was 75 and started knitting at age 83. Of course, I’ve been cooking for decades and the blog has been a good way to remember old favorites and to meet new people. Thank you to everyone who has read my posts. It’s been such fun.
A PERFECT DAY FOR PUMPKIN PIE
This September Sunday morning is cool, crisp and autumn-like with trees starting to show color and fall decorations beginning to appear on front doors. It’s a perfect day for pumpkin pie. My recipe is pretty much standard except for a few variations in spices. I heard Garrison Keillor quote one of his radio characters, saying, “The best pumpkin pie you ever tasted isn’t that much better than the worst,” but I don’t agree. Homemade pumpkin pies are really good and a super-easy pie to make. I prefer to make my pie crust but certainly frozen ones are available.
