Here lies the proof that my pie making skills are not limited to a single homemade pie crust. For Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend I made two pumpkin pies including crust from scratch (just keeping it real - all the dirty dishes were not photographed :).
My mother drove up Island and spent two nights with us for Thanksgiving Weekend and we had a very nice visit. Lots of lovely things were on the menu: turkey, corn, salad, homemade stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes with bacon cheese and chives, gravy and of course hot buttered rum and pumpkin pie for desert.
We watched some good movies (Avengers and Sherlock Holmes II) and managed two visits to the ocean this weekend including spotting eagles, seals, and starfish and picking shells. It was a great weekend.
September budget results will be posted tommorrow. Cheers!
