Blogger Friend School Assignment #7




We are to share anything related to pumpkins.  I was going to post this recipe a little later in November, but it fits the category.

I make a couple of these pies every year for the holidays.  It is my family’s favorite and doesn’t last long in our house.

@ 2 cups cooked and mashed fresh pumpkin or 1 16oz canned pumpkin

2 eggs, beaten

¾ cup molasses

¼ tsp cloves

½ tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

1 2/3 cups of evaporated milk (12 oz can)

1 crust for 9-10” pie

Prepare crust in pie pan. 

In large bowl, put beaten eggs and pumpkin.  Blend together with a wire wisk.  Add molasses and mix.  Then add sugar and spices and blend until well mixed.  Add evaporated milk and mix well. Pour into pie shell. ( I usually put the pie dish on a cookie sheet to catch any spills.  I also put the cookie sheet and pie dish on the oven rack before I pour the filling in.  I’ve had accidents in the past moving the filled pie to the oven.)

Bake at 425º for 15 minutes.

Turn the oven down to 350º and bake 35 to 45 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool. Store in the refrigerator.


The Homeschool Kids Write assignment has to do with pumpkins this week also.  If you get a chance stop by there and check out what the kids have written. 

One more fun post to check out is at Teacups in the Garden.  She has a really neat post about pumpkin carving.

The Scripture that struck me when I was reading my Bible this morning was Colossians 2:16-17

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    Love the idea of writing about being in a giant pumpkin…my ds might like that…when he was little James and the Giant Peach was one of his favorite movies…

    My kids have never carved a pumpkin-maybe this year we'll do it…I think it would be fun for the whole texture etc, as long as we don't do a jack'o'lantern…

    Sounds like one yummy recipe!

    Hi.. just visiting from BFS

    I like what you wrote about using the flashlight in the above post. Scripture must never be taken in too small portions, lest it be taken out of context. We must always KNOW the WHOLE Word of God, and then analyze the scripture verses individually, once we have the BIG picture.
