"MMM...this pie's good"

Anyone who recognises the above quote is a movie superstar! Behold my punkin' pie:

Recipe ala Sarah Kramer, How it All Vegan. Her cookbooks have seriously made vegan life tasteful. My whole house smells so yummy! I know, it's not yet Thanksgiving. I will be making a vegan cherry pie to take the the family spread, along with other tasty vegan fare. Kay will be making her own punkin' pie which will not be vegan. I decided I did need some punkin' pie this season after all, will freeze some of it and take it to the feast along with the cherry that everyone will eat. Bill is scared of my vegan punkin' but I hope to change his mind.

Now, behold my beret, modeled by the Bar Lamp:

If you look closely, you will see why the lamp is called a bar lamp. It's great it is identified as such, so that I do not get confused and assume it's just a regular lamp. The bottom has a Scotsman in a kilt hanging onto the lamppost. Probably a distant relative of mine. My beret is still coming along slowly. This will be the one and only time I ever knit with a size one needle!!!

My guy came home at 7:00 AM. He worked until 12 AM in the garden state, then drove the van filled with coworkers back to Pittsburgh. He came in, dropped his stuff on the floor, and promptly lowered the thermostat from a comfy 66 degrees F to a bone-chilling, draft-inducing 62.5 degrees F. Then he went to bed, where I still was sleeping. I did not find any of this out until 2 hours later. Thus begins the Heat Meiser Winter Warlock Battle of 2006-2007. It is waged yearly, for those not in the know.

Lastly, HOW BOUT THEM STILLERS???!!!??? What a fantastic game!!! I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails until the last 3-second play. Hines and Ben, what troopers you are to sustain injuries and keep playing! Favorite comment by the announcer following Troy Polumalo leveling a Brownie and flipping him head-over-heels by the sideline:

"Those of you who work in cubicles would be calling in sick for two days following that!" I will be laughing in my cube all day tomorrow!

Off to knit up a beret and try to turn up the thermostat undetected...

Hi Patricia, The pie looks great! I love pumpkin pie! I didn't get to see the game yesterday, since they didn't show it in my area. :-(
But I was thrilled to see that they pulled it out! Go Steelers!
