This morning I continued the adventure of making pumpkin pie that I began last night.

Bottom center and right: I watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as the pie baked. I love Snoopy. This balloon is his 7th incarnation according to Matt Lauer.
Here’s the recipe I used from allrecipes.com:
2 cups mashed, cooked pumpkin
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
In a large bowl with mixer speed on medium, beat pumpkin with evaporated milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well. Pour into a prepared crust. Bake 40 minutes or until when a knife is inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean.”
Note: I added a dash a ground cloves, used a Pillsbury pie crust, and left in the oven about 5-10 minutes than called for by the recipe. This whole process was a blast!
