So, when you go to the pumpkin farm and Gary, the pumpkin cannon guy, does this brain washing routine where he spouts off the virtues of "real" pumpkin pie in between cannon blasts, and he practically dares you to make "real " pumpkin pie because if you don't then you haven't had "real" pumpkin pie ... Well, when that happens do yourself a favor, stick your fingers in your ears while singing, "lalalalala I can't heeeear you lalalala," and then run home and make yourself some pumpkin pie from a can. Trust me. Because pumpkin pie from a can is yummy, it won't take a whole day to make, it won't make a terrific mess of your kitchen, and you won't have to know any better. As for me?
Well, I made the mistake of taking Gary up on his "real thing" dare and now, while canned pumpkin pie is still fine for regular fare, I don't know that I'm ever going to be able to consider my pumpkin pie as The Best unless it's made from the "real thing." *sigh* It just tastes so very much like a pumpkin pie should. *sigh* But I really like being cheap and easy. *sigh* But how can I ever go back knowing I'd be missing out on that bright orange color, the light creamy flesh, that perfect taste and consistency?
Thanks a lot Gary!
