*This title won’t make sense unless you are familiar with a certain commercial run in Hawaii in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Points to anyone that can place it (no points to Kara though – I already know you know.)
So I made my first pie today. Actually, I made two. (I am pretty much a pro now.) I was most intimidated by the crust. Not really sure what was so scary about it, but I was convinced it was going to be the hardest part. I guess you could say I was right, but only because the rest of the pies were so easy to make. So it was a little scary and I wasn’t sure I did it right but I am really quite pleased with how it turned out. Want to see?
I am kind of in love with it. So I made two pies, a pumpkin and an apple. The end result didn’t look perfect by any means but they sure tasted yummy.
The other fun thing I got to do on Thanksgiving was wear this super cool turkey headband:
So my thanksgiving was great. Lots of family and good food. If nothing else however, my day of pie making opened up a whole new world of cooking that I hadn’t yet explored. For that I thank you Thanksgiving.
