A little holiday baking

When they were passing out the "baking gene", I was overlooked. But thankfully, DD received an extra helping. Cookies, cakes from scratch, brownies...you name it, she can bake it.

And now, we can add pumpkin pie to the list.

A couple of weeks ago, she saw a note that our church is providing pies for an inner city meal site. "Mom, I signed up to make a pumpkin pie," she told me.

OK, I thought. This could be interesting. While she has done a lot of baking, she has never made a pumpkin pie.

Last night, she made three. We even get to keep one.

Quite appropriately, my sole task was to pay for the ingredients. And conduct extensive taste testing.

You are so lucky...I was also passed over when the baking genes were given out, so maybe my DD has it too :) Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

I can bake, but I HATE to do so, though I like the results, lol. As I have no DD, I will hope one or both of my DS inherited the "liking to bake" gene:) How cool that B made a couple for the charity event, too!
