1st November...

Another busy day for me ...baking, baking and more baking of our favourite Autumnal treats,  Pumpkin Pies ... I was in such a dither all tangled up in my apron strings, trying to bake and also  fulfill my Grandma-Nursery duties with the Grand-bubba, that I almost forgot to hang my November word play pocket! :)
In between baking and nap time  I even attempted to make another woolly Crow ...but it still somehow looks like a black Duck!! ...hahaha   ...or maybe I should be aiming to make a Raven ... could it pass as a Raven do you think? ..hehehe   Obviously I'm not that good at drawing bird bodies freehand! ;)

Most of my day was happily spent baking..
 lots of yummy smelly spices and indulgent rich cream ...this recipe is not for the faint-hearted or the slim-of-hips! ..hahaha

A bit of blitzing ...with my blitzer ..hehe
 I adore the way Pumpkin pulp goes smooth and silky ...and that colour! mouth was starting to water already at this point :)

Yaaaay!...Pies in my oven :)
 this was only the first batch too ...  the second batch was ready and waiting its turn to go in the oven  ;) we had a total of  seven Pumpkin Pies baked ... the kitchen smelt heavenly all day !

We even roasted some of the pumpkin seeds..
 a drizzle of Olive oil, a good sprinkling of sea salt and 20-30 minutes in a hot oven  and out comes crunchy goodness on a tray :)

The sun shone on our Pumpkin Pies! :) hahaha
I'm pleased to report that they were all perfect pies!  I didn't drop or spill one little drop of pumpkin mixture so my kitchen stayed relatively clean too! :) Of our seven pies a few have already found their way to friends and family to fill their  tummy's,  but we've managed save two and  eat two whole pies for our greedy little selves ... hahahha   There is something special about warm Pumpkin Pie, a healthy ( or unhealthy!) dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of maple syrup that is just sooooo moreish ...and perfectly delicious!!!   :)  Pumpkin Pie is not to every ones taste, I bake ours as a sweet pie, a little bit like an English Custard Tart ...but yummier! :) I can probably guarantee that there will be no pies left by the weekend...but it's OK ... I have another two Pumpkins to blitz yet ...and I'll do my up most to try a freeze at least one of those  pies so we can enjoy it later in the month ...or even at Christmas! :)

Would one of your amazing pies survive a trip across the big pond then all across the US? Sadly I doubt it.

Spot on with this write-up, I truly suppose this web site needs far more consideration. I’ll in all probability be once more to read way more, thanks for that info. gsn casino

Excellent pie baking. I'm taking our small Halloween pumpkins and making pumpkin soup this week. It's a favorite of my youngest daughter and her family 😊
