Those little "I'm an adult now" revelations

Recently I've been wanting some pumpkin pie. Just, I don't know, I love pumpkin pie, and I want to have some. Well as it turns out, I've been lied to, for you see pumpkin pie is in fact not seasonal. I always thought you could only get it on Thanksgiving, since that was the only time my family ever served this particular treat.

 

Delighted, I picked up a can of pumpkin, and the ingredients from the recipe on the back - evaporated milk, seasonings, pie shell, all that good stuff - and just ten minutes ago I started drumming them all together. First the sugar and the spices..then came the eggs...the pumpkin settled in nicely, and it was starting to smell pretty delicious already.

 

When I added the condensed milk - gradually, as per the instructions - it slowly dawned on me that this was quite a bit of mix. In fact, the large bowl was almost over-spilling with liquidy pumpkin goodness. Could it be...but surely, no...yes, this is far too much mix...

 

I withdrew the pie crust from the freezer, and lo and behold - there were actually two crusts in there. Surprise, I wound up with a bonus pie.

 

I've got two pies in the oven, and a mostly-full can of whipped cream in the fridge. It's all happening.

 

What's next? Summertime eggnog? Wintertime snow cones? Are those little yellow Peeps chicks actually only available in Easter?

 

Edit: I was supposed to let it cool another hour but I'm having a slice now anyway. It's warm, but still delicious.

Surprise, someone moved Thanksgiving up a month since Christmas ate its old spot.

 

But since Halloween has this spot, I'm guessing it'll have to move into August, where there are conveniently no major holidays. Meanwhile, Halloween had better watch its back. It's next.

Hey, I won't mind stuffing myself in August.

 

This also means I'm not tripping over Santas and falling in the snow.
