Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Obviously Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated here in Germany, so I am imagining all the people I love in the US crowding around full tables (probably at this very moment actually) with their families and loved ones, the surfaces heaped with DELECTABLE food in all manner of dishes, conversation, stories and laughter filling the room, candles aglow along the length of the spread. I love all of this. After the meal, a game of cards might break out, or everyone may cozy down in front of a movie. And of course, watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade here and there throughout the day as fun background filler is a must. And finally, once dusk gives way to night and people start to get the late night munchies, they head back into the kitchen to assemble a small plate of…drum roll…one of the best parts about Thanksgiving…LEFTOVERS!!!!
Therefore I thought with recipe #16, I would stick to the traditional-thanksgiving-foods theme, so here is an awesome Pumpkin Pie for you to sample and fall in love with. Alongside of stuffing (though not literally eaten together. That would be gross :-p), pumpkin pie is the most sought after item on the Thanksgiving spread for me. I could easily kill half a pie if you twisted my arm (or, even if you didn’t).
Yes, the crust on this recipe is a tad complicated but its WELL WORTH IT.
What is the must have item on your Thanksgiving menu?
