Pumpkin Pie

Has it really been 9+ months since I last updated my blog? I guess that's due to using Facebook more, since most family and friends are on FB, and sharing photos, etc., is easier ...

Anyway, I wanted to share a 'recipe' by Katrina. Her class created a Thanksgiving cookbook and she dictated to her teacher how to make pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Pie by Katrina, age 4.5

Ingredients: Apples, pumpkins, sugar, milk and butter
