Punkins, Pumpkins & Death Pie

Punkins, Pumpkins & Death Pie

I've been in the mood for a Fall weekend for a while now, so on Saturday we took Beckett to pick out his pumpkin. He walked back & forth between the rows and I'm pretty sure he licked every stem (you're welcome Winchester!). I always enjoyed Halloween as a kid and I hope he will too. (keep reading for death pie)

A very nice lady offered to take a family pic for us, but Beckett wanted to keep licking pumpkin stems!

My handsome boys…

 Walking through the rows of pumpkins… so many choices!

They had some very unique ones too…

And now he can lick his own little pumpkin…

About that Death Pie…

In addition to getting a couple of pumpkins for us, we picked up some delicious muffins from the Gingerbread Construction Co. which we promptly devoured and therefore not pictured. Also not pictured is Sunday dinner with my sister-in-laws which consisted of pork tenderloin, baked butternut squash & roasted brussel sprouts. YUM. And sadly… I must mention the (un-pictured) death pie. What is death pie you ask? Well, Mathew's sister brought over a gorgeous homemade apple pie that was to bake while everything else cooked… except… about a minute into baking our oven thermometer exploded. It was a very sad moment and glass was all over the bottom of the oven. So, Death Pie is pie that MAY or MAY NOT be riddled internally with glass. It was too good looking to toss so we decided to bake the sucker anyway (after a thorough glass inspection of course). However… it was relegated to the bottom rack to make way for other dishes we were baking and as soon as it started to bubble over the drippings started smoking. A lot. And of course our oven vents INTO the house. Of course it does. And although every indicator said we shouldn't eat the Death Pie, we still ate bits from the bottom and it was DELICIOUS. I can't wait to enjoy another.
