Albany John, my best friend/sister and I hopped over to western Mass. to spend Thanksgiving with Mama and Papa Amherst, Albany John’s parents. Goodness, am I thankful for them. Papa Amherst put out quite a spread this year (you can see about half of it above).
Albany John and I made pumpkin pie for dessert. And this was an actual co-created dessert. I suck at baking crusts. I have no idea why. They turn out soggy and dense. His are an absolute delight – always light and crisp. So Albany John made the crust, and I mixed all the ingredients based on the instructions from the back of the can (it was libby’s 100% pumpkin puree, and wow did this come out well!). Well, I also grated in some fresh nutmeg, but that is a whole other post.
