I finally cooked my Pie Pumpkin!
Today after Church I finally cooked my pie pumpkin. For those of you who don't know what a pie pumpkin looks like here is a pretty good description. These pumpkins are squatter than a jack-o-lantern type pumpkin, they are lighter and the meat of the pumpkin is more dense. I have cooked these pumpkins for the last 29 years and they make a wonderful pumpkin pie. Where I grew up in northwestern NJ they were called Milk Pumpkins. I guess because they were a pumpkin color with milk in it. That is the only way I can describe it. When I make my Great-Grandmother's Recipe for her pumpkin pie, I will post it on here.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
