Speaking of pumpkins, we are big fans of pumpkin pie and they don't have canned pumpkin here :) so I thought I'd try out some recipes so we can have a good one for Thanksgiving. I know Jared said we wouldn't put pics of food on our blog, but I couldn't resist:) I'm sure some of you are more pioneer than I, but this pie entailed: steaming and pureeing the pumpkin, making the crust from scratch and whipping fresh cream. They don't have Cool Whip here either:) Many hours later, we were rewarded with a DELICIOUS pumpkin pie! Seriously, I was very proud. Yay for success.
Elias helped me with the pie. We thought the pureed pumpkin was very bright orange. We included a pic of him holding the NZ butter too, because it's so bright yellow. Hope you had a great day too.
