Is it September already?!? Cooler weather has hit the Midwest, Mr. Moon is up sooner and the Morning light has ventured into sleep land only to be awakened after the misty air clears it’s foggy self…my garden is full of interesting looking gourds, little pumpkins are showing itself and because of that my kids are pleading with me to make pumpkin pies which I respond back by saying, “Soon dear ones, the pumpkins are ity bity right now but soon they’ll grow and we shall have pie once more”. Yes, it’s definitely September. I’m loving it!
To be honest I’ve never made pumpkin pie from scratch as in plucking one from my garden & plopping it unto my kitchen table, pulling its insides out, hacking it up and boiling it to make a pie. How’s THAT for graphic visualization? I plan to do this and am excited to watch my pumpkins grow. Don’t worry, I’ll be nice to the pumpkins I’ve made lots of pumpkin pies the “can” way and I must say it’s far easier to do so, but since I do love a good food challenge, I’m going to take a day…or two because for me it might take that long, to try it out and feel like I’m in the pioneering days of making pies or something. We have a bake sale around this time of year at our church and some of the ladies there make real, from scratch pumpkin pies that are highly sought after and I of course am one of those people that seeks it out and grabs for them, turns into crazy lady and says MINE!.. ALL MINE! With a crazed, delirious look and heavy breathing…ok, I’m not that bad yet, I do appreciate all the work that goes into those lovely pies.
Stories about my foodventures are developing as I learn and try new recipes, tweaking them to my families liking…researching and connecting with other food bloggers out there (there are like a gazillion and one blogs out there!) I do love my community of foodie friends and am still connecting and learning as I go. I’m so grateful you take the time to read my little bloggy blog and be sure to come back soon because there is a lot to tell you all. I haven’t forgotten about you. Thanks a pumpkin patch for being so patient with me

A tree uses what comes its way to nurture itself. By sinking its roots deeply into the earth, by accepting the rain that flows towards it, by reaching out to the sun, the tree perfects its character and becomes great. … Absorb, absorb, absorb. That is the secret of the tree.
