    Your pie sounds wonderful. Also, I never knew you could use something other than evaporated milk in the recipe for pumpkin pie. I believe I will have to try this recipe. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family. Thank you for sharing your life with all of us.

    IN thinking about your comment about people calling pumpkin “pumpkin” o think
    It is very common in my area . I have no survey but I would guess as often as not. In regard to the tecipe using genuine prepared pumpkin I had the same thoughts when I read your sweet potato story and saying people had sparred over remaining cans of sweet potatoes . They are so inferior to a home cooked sweet potato . They are eatery and totally over processed to a mushy texture . A world of difference in the final dish . In a hurry I sometimes microwave a sweet potAto. It their true goodness comes from oven baking them . There natural sugar Carmelites and is so superior . Try roasting chicken pieces or a whole chicken in a cast iron skillet with sweet potatoes around it . If the potatoes are too large roast as large cut chunks .
