Mission Accomplished!

Finally! My craving for pumpkin pie has been fulfilled (note the empty plate, which will soon have a second helping... just a sliver). I have craved it nonstop, ever since the last *two* trips to Whole Foods in which I passed up buying their $6 pumpkin pie. I really wanted a homemade version, and said to myself "just make one"! A week elapsed, and I'd be sitting after dinner thinking "you know what would be really good right now...". So today I made the darn thing, with sweet potatoes and a crumbly nutty-oat crust (I used almonds, I'm not allergic to those).
Now if I only had some vanilla rice dream, just a dollop...

Well, pies aside.. I did accomplish some other things today. I put the finishing touches on *2* new mohair cats, my largest size so far (which is still small compared to 'regular size' bears). These cats are super special if I may say so, and ready for new homes. I will post them on my blog tomorrow afternoon (and send an email out to my mailing list when that happens)!

Here's to pumpkin pies and kitties!

I just found the sadest eamail in my seldomly visited spam mail. It was an email notifying me that Pepper wasav ailable to purchase! I am so disapointed! I wish I had your pie to eat while I nurse this broken heart.

Oh that pie looks so good! I use a pumpkin recipe and substitute sweet potatoes to make my sweet potato spice cake. Another yum!
