I made so much pie. SO MUCH PIE.

I'm living in Belfast at the moment, and was invited to a dinner with my American classmates.
They don't even have canned pumpkin here. I made the pies out of real pumpkins. I only meant to make 3 but I somehow ended up with enough filling for 5... and then I made cinnamon rolls out of some extra dough... and then I toasted the pumpkin seeds...

Holy monkeys I feel like Martha Stewart.


Ah, pie! The life of pie! Short and sweet! topic

If they do not eat it all, take it to a seniors centre and they will gobble it. Seniors love pie! If it is as good as I think the American classmates will finish it all off!

The coastal Canaanites (called Phoenicians by greeks) ....and the biggest portion of us carry Phoenician markers in their DNA , the second largest portion are the Arabs.

Mine was a sarcastic comment, not a question, actually.

Aw, c'mon prince. Farming in temperate climates is pretty seasonal by necessity, so it's not too surprising to have a festival holiday type event at the end of the harvest season.

Geez, while we're at it, easter is supposedly about killing a jew. Actually it has more to do with spring and the end of winter. When I was a kid I could never figure out what rabbits and painted eggs had to do with the crucifixion.

In response to the original poster's question, I didn't do a damn thing but wait for it to pass.

Thanksgiving's another one of those holidays that don't have no provision for people who are alone.
