Pumpkin Pies

Like I said they needed a post to there own!
Back near the end of October Grim and I went down to see the old woman... Who wasn't there but her family was... ( don't know if anything happened but keeping her in my prayers none the less ). We got some apples and a few small squash. While we were there I picked up 5 pie pumpkins.... I have only once in the last couple years cooked them up... Usually they end up as decorations or squirrel feed. But this year I had every intention of cooking them up. By the middle of November one of them got all mushy on the counter. So it was a do or die situation... LOL! Needless to say it was a good day to cook pumpkins!

Once the pumpkins were cooked and cooled, I blended the pulp and forced it through a fine colander to remove any chunks.... Then I weighed and put into zip top bags. Off into the freezer they went... I ended up with 4 ~ 28oz bags. Two of which were used to make 4 pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving.....

This monumental task was taken on by Picky monster.... It was her first time.... She kept coming and asking me why the color didn't match the color it should be.... In my brain fogged sickness it took me awhile to come up with an answer... Its because we used real pumpkin not canned. She did a fantastic job! I guess I don't have to make the pies anymore... LOL!
