A beautiful pumpkin pie...

If you recall, I announced to my family at the beginning of the month that our Sunday family dinner desserts throughout the month of November would all be pumpkin based.  The first two weeks were great, third week was okay but no one's favorite.  Every week Diego suggested just plain ol' pumpkin pie (his favorite) for the next week.

The boys are going to be with their other parents for Thanksgiving.  That means that our feast will have three fewer chairs around the table.  So I thought I would make Diego his pumpkin pie as the Sunday dessert today.

I had all the ingredients in the pantry, and it went together quickly.  Really quickly.  In fact, once it went in the oven, I thought, "Well, that was easier than I remember." 

It turned out beautifully.  I let it cool, and transported it to Kasey's.  After dinner, Diego was the first to cut himself a slice.  When I got around to getting a piece, the first bite made me laugh at myself.  I hadn't put any sugar in it!  It was so...blah.  I felt so bad for Diego!  He hadn't said a word.  Ah, well, I'm sure he will get some in a few days.  If not I'll make him another...with all the ingredients next time.  :)


  1. Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh....dont'cha hate it when that happens?! <3

    1. I saw a recipe the other day where they used just the filling of a pumpkin pie (baked and scooped out of the shell or baked without one), put it in a pastry bag, and piped it onto cupcakes as frosting. By the time I thought of using that idea by scooping out the unsweetened filling and mixing it with some powdered sugar, it had been thrown out. Double aaarrgh and a head slap!!!
