Pumpkin pie; it's how we roll

We are at the Hart Motel, a first rate joint.

Tim, the owner even taught us how to make Pumpkin Pie from scratch, and boy oh boy do I mean scratch.

Step 1:
Warsh your pumpkin.

Step 2:
Pose for a quick American Gothic Shot

Step 3:
Whack it right in half.

Step 4:
Crack it in half and find a big spoon.
Step 5:
Get in there nice and deep like and scoop out the seeds and guts. (Hint: Save the seeds, they are great salted and baked!)

Step 6:
Cut the meat of the pumpkin up, add some of the rind, add to boiling water.
Add nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.
Boil until meat is very soft.
Mix with brown sugar and a little flour.
Heat and stir until very thick.

Step 7:

Have your girlfriend make her special recipe crust, and pour your mixture into it.
Voila! Homemade pumpkin pie from scratch.

More to come soon. It has been a good weekend.

Hope you are all enjoying your time responsibly,

-J

Have you seen "The Go-Getter?"

At one point a rock singer yells "Rock 'n' Roll Pumpkin Pie!"
And that's definitely one of my favorite lines in the history of cinema ;)

I have not even heard of that movie. But this pie was awesome!
