Classic Pumpkin Pie

Classic Pumpkin Pie

I have to tell you a secret. I love pumpkin pie. But I only want to eat it for Thanksgiving. That’s enough for me. But when I eat it, it’s like I’m in heaven, I could jump with joy. But that all I need to last me for the entire year. So I’m weird that way.

So it looks like I may have confused some people with celebrating Thanksgiving early. It was not early for us, I live in Canada and our Thanksgiving is in October. It’s a bit weird for me because I used to work in the US for over 10 years and I’ve always had the time off for the American Thanksgiving and now I finally get to celebrate with the rest of Canada. So it’s nice.
