Pumpkin Pie Mission

Well I made the pumpkin pie from our jack-o-lanterns on Saturday. Halloween night after the trick or treaters were gone we brought the pumpkins inside and I steamed them, took the skins off and put them in the fridge over night to get rid of the excess water. Then Saturday morning I used my Roma Food Mill and pureed all the pumpkin. It was beautiful! and I was so proud! I made two pies and froze the rest of the pumpkin in 3 cup portions so they were ready for making more pies later on. My plan was to make the pies and then freeze them so that Thanksgiving work would be less, but I can't make pumpkin pie without eating it. It smelled way too good! So I guess it is a good thing I froze the rest.
