pumpkin pie from scratch, pumpkin and all (click the link for the recipe I'm using)! I did quite a bit of research before settling on this recipe, and there are A LOT of recipes out there, but this one seemed the most straight forward and natural. All of the rest of the dinners ingredients are ready to be prepared. We've got a 19lb turkey, candied yams, mashed potatoes, and cranberry relish (all also from scratch), green bean casserole, and everything on the menu is a family tradition including "THE salad" and homemade dinner rolls, so the rest should be a piece of cake. Of course, the planner that I am, I did purchase a can of pumpkin pie filling as back-up just in case something goes awry. Wish me luck!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
This recipe is totally worth the effort, but be forewarned you will need a bit of muscle and elbow grease to cut these pumpkins open!!!
