May I introduce my little pumpkin pie, the ultimate fan favorite Thanksgiving dessert?! Some lifetime memories were made late last night after we devoured two rounds of turkey and glazed ham married with my new kimchi sofrito recipe. Afterwards- we were greeted by the inevitable delectable pumpkin pie, who sat next to a perfect pecan pie. They were both pinched long before dessert time of course. But who can blame a room full of overstuffed adults and children? Not me….and I certainly couldn’t say no to anyone asking for more whipped cream…Hope you had fun with yours, because we certainly did!
Hello Pumpkin Pie
Hello Pecan Pie.
Me: Show everyone how to eat pie Daniel, Mommy’s taking pictures with my iPhone!
Daniel takes his FIRST bite of pumpkin pie, EVER.
Daniel: How was that Mommy?
Me: You didn’t smile. Can you smile for me?
Daniel: Ok, take another picture…CHEESE!!!!!!
Me: That’s such a fake smile Daniel! Ugh- just eat your pie then.
Daniel: (silent thoughts) This pie sucks. I’m bored. Thanksgiving sucks.
Daniel: (silent thoughts) I’m sooooo bored……
Daniel: (silent thoughts) At least it’s better than more turkey and veggies!
Daniel: (silent thoughts) I wonder if it tastes any different if I cut it into pieces?
Daniel: (silent thoughts) One more piece to go and then I’ll know. Nothing better than pie with whipped cream…yay!
Daniel: Oh no! I’m out of whipped cream!!!!!!!! MOMMY!!!!!! There’s no more whipped cream!
Me: You mean this? You want more?
Daniel: Yay! Yes! Yes! Yes!
Me: Here you go gorgeous! On second thought- do you want to try a big bite of whipped cream?
Daniel: Huh? On my fork?
Me: No. Just open wide!!
Daniel: Um, ok.
Alex: (in the background) Hey what are you doing to Daniel?
Me: You want some too Alex?
Alex: Hey- what are you doing with that thing in my face!!!
Me: Just say Ah- look! It’s really yummy…
Me: Ok- who’s next? Mozie!!!!
Mozie: I don’t think so. Get that device away from my furry face! (jumps off the couch and hides)
And Daniel takes the last big bite before we’re off to sweet dreams….
Daniel: Mommy, can I tell you something? I had so much fun today! I love you very very much Mommy.
Me: I love you more my little black beauty.
Fireworks sparked off somewhere in the distant sky before we were gently swept away into a dreamy landscape with magical unicorns and fairies…
