Pumpkin Gratitude

November 22, 2012 · 1 comment

Things we’re thankful for:

Taste buds.

Pumpkin. Eggs. Condensed sweetened milk. Cinnamon. Ginger. Nutmeg. Salt. Spelt flour, Tenderflake lard, and water.

Flame resistant oven gloves that protect delicate wee knuckles from contact with HOT! HOT! HOT! oven interiors.

Good health.

Portion control via Texas muffin tins.

Yes, Virginia… Texas really does have their own muffin tin standard, which enables the hapless Thanksgiving Indulgent to indulge in a slightly smaller hunk o’ dessert than the classic piece o’ pie. (And they thought they were selling us slightly larger muffins.)

Gorgeous glossy Emile Henry Couleur pie dishes that make everything on them look gorgeous and glossy.

I want to take a big breath and swan dive right off the pastry cliff into that lake of fragrant autumnal satisfaction. This may be my favorite color: Pumpkin Pie.

Orange dessert foods, full of wonderful health-giving carotenoids, that aren’t raw carrots.

Olfactory glands.

Eyes that work.

Work that supplies money to buy the pumpkin we didn’t grow this summer, although we did pull in six fabulous strawberries from our nascent Zone 3 garden.

Peace in the Middle East.

Celebrating holidays with your wonderful best friend and a darned decent dog.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

P.S. Whipping cream. Did I mention whipping cream? Whipping cream.
