Cookin’ Boys

the day before Thanksgiving and lessons underway…the childrens’ favorite part (mine too) is pressing the fork gently around the crust, leaving a trail of lines to decorate the part of the pie we all throw away.
I shared my “secret” to perfect pumpkin pie and they all responded with giddy delight, as if the CIA itself were searching for such treasure and I had entrusted only THEM with the correct code. Since all 4 of my silent blog readers are such trustworthy souls I will tell you also but keep it quiet…you follow the printed recipe on the back of a sturdy orange can of Libby’s pumpkin but double the spices called for. and you must use REAL nutmeg. grated fresh. not from a jar.
this message will self-destruct in 10…9…8…7…6…

About sparrowjourney

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
