ha! fooled ya!
(glorious pumpkin pie by Missus Potsblog)
When I lived in Chicago, people I worked with ate something at Thanksgiving I had never heard of: sweet potato pie, a recipe from, I think, parts of the deep south. They were suspicious of this thing I was used to, pumpkin pie. That has nothing to do with this, really, but Missus Potsblog and her family routinely make many pumpkin pies in the fall because it was their grandmother's favorite. I wanted one for my birthday, and the missus made a brilliant and beautiful pair of pies, VEGAN, dairy-free, can you believe it? We found a recipe for a soy and pumpkin pie that is delicious.
Pumpkin Pie is, if you can believe it, my pet name for my wife (yeow! secret's out!)
So, my mom and dad are visiting yesterday, and I dish this out with soy ice cream on it, and FOOLED them! Ha! They never guessed it was made with soy. That's tasty.
