Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater


Pumpkin Patch in Georgia Mountains


I have looked everywhere this week (well the 3 stores in town) for a Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin Pie. I have been under the weather and one of the things I can eat is Pumpkin but alas Peter must have eaten all the pies as I have not been able to find one.

I have had offers of Apple Pie (which I love) and Pumpkin Cheesecake (which I am sure I would love) but alas no offers of a fresh baked Pumpkin Pie.... my mother always made the best she added extra spices and they were so yummy!

Beth once made a sugar free Pumpkin Pie for her daddy when we first found out he had diabetes. He ate a piece, told her thank you and to never make it again. At least he ate his 'cause none of the rest of the family could do that.

Right about now I would settle for a Pumpkin doughnut from Dunkin's but we don't have one of those either. Maybe I can sweet talk Frank into bringing me home a doughnut from Anderson or better yet maybe THEY have pumpkin pies!

Oh, what I would give for a slice of really good pumpkin pie! I'm lucky if there's even pumpkin in a can around here. Pie, forget it. French people don't know what proper pie is. Alas!

I'll bet you could get more than one pie out of all those pumpkins.

I don't get pumpkin here either - at least you have a chance in the next couple of weeks. course that wont help the craving NOW.

whoopee I will be in Houston for Thanks giving but my cooking skills are limited to frozen pie shells and libby libby libby pie mix. (with extra spices added! to make it taste like long ago)

Yum! I'm craving pumpkin pie now myself.

I'm writing because Pauline from Pauline's Paddock recommended you to be a grilled grandma on my site, www.grandmasbriefs.com, but I'm unable to find an e-mail address for you to send the questions. If you're interested, e-mail me: lisa (at) grandmasbriefs (dot) com! I'd love to grill you (Pauline was grilled last week). :o)
