It's the only way to get everything done by Thanksgiving. :)
Actually, in the spirit of this homeschooling stuff, we decided that Cookie Monster would learn to make a pumpkin pie from scratch.
She picked out a sugar pumpkin at the store with Grandma and we roasted it today. It yielded 1.5 cups of pumpkin, so we had to do a little mathematical figurin' to get the purse the cream ratio just right. Then she measured all the ingredients and beat the filling. I had a pie crust ready in the freezer, but she's made that before and if we get all our school done early tomorrow we're going to try our hand at making homemade puff pastry, which is sorta like pie crust.
Beautiful job, eh?
Next Turkey Day recipe she is going to tackle is dressing--two batches worth to feed all the in-laws!
