Historically, I like pie. It might be close to my favorite food. I say that, but when I think about food, I like most. Anyway, pie would be high on my list.
When I was a kid, we had a pie cherry tree. Most of the kids in the neighborhood would get together and pick and pit all the cherries and my mom would make each a pie. Lots of sugar on the bottom of the crust that solidified after being refrigerated. It was great.
I don’t make that many cherry pies. Mainly pumpkin and apple. I think that is because the ingredients are easily accessible. I like cherry pie a lot. Peach too. I guess I need to expand my horizons.
Recently, since whacking my head, I’ve had a little smell/taste issue, so food isn’t as interesting. Hopefully that figures itself out. That didn’t stop me from making a few pies for Thanksgiving. Pumpkin only.
Did you know that canned pumpkin isn’t normally the pumpkins we use at Halloween. It is a variety of squash. I use Libby’s pumpkin which is sort of pumpkin.
Anyway, I hope you all got a chance to eat some pie the last couple days. If not, you should soon.
