Turkey For Everyone! (Except those crazy veggies...)
I'm going to make this pretty quick as family time dominates this weekend. I hope everyone who's celebrating Thanksgiving is having a wonderful one, and for those of you who aren't, well, that's unfortunate. My condolences.
The two things that scream Thanksgiving the most, you know, besides all the 'being thankful' stuff are turkey and pumpkin pie and I have been indulging in both of those heartily.
In my attempt at the pie I completely missed a very large step in the recipe, but it seems to have turned out ok nonetheless. The pie is actually maple-pumpkin and I was supposed to boil the maple syrup first, almost to softball stage. I only remembered to do that after I had dumped the maple syrup, cream, pumpkin, eggs, etc. into Wilbur and he was had at work, whisking them together. At that point I either had to start over or push on through and hope for the best, I opted for the later.
