once again, i made homemade pumpkin pies from scratch (and i mean literally from scratch) plus roasted seeds. flowers are still blooming, and i was sweating in the kitchen, on this unseasonably warm autumn erev. not that i’m complaining! we’re fortifying ourselves to hibernate through another winter in ohio. PS. the pies came out well, if i do say so myself. E. seconds it. proof is in the eating.
