Discovering the joys of pumpkin pie. This year we had a thanksgiving here in New Zealand. ? ? For many reasons, that is a complicated thing to do. Buying turkey in November is difficult, tinned baking pumpkin is unheard of and being locked in a kitchen while the sun is beating down outside is far from traditional. ? ? But, we did it. Zoom calls with far off US family, and what ended up being 3 different dinners as we spanned multiple timezones. ? ? This pumpkin pie was from our first meal of the long weekend – thanksgiving dinner at @moreporkbbq and it was exceptional. The whole meal was, but the rest was devoured too quickly for photos! We went on to eat more pumpkin pie at home over the week, then again this Christmas (and yesterday for breakfast, too!) .. I think I’m finally pumpkin-pied out, but will be looking forward to another round next November.? ? I am now in love with pumpkin pie. A dish I have been skeptical of my entire life, a vegetable I had never considered for desserts. ? ? Absolutely delicious. 100% will eat again (and again, and again)
