Festal pumpkin cans have this recipe… So we just had to follow it.

We accidentally put in the whole 12 oz can of evaporated milk instead of just 8 oz. Made it really liquidy. We used some flour to thicken it back up. AK suggested we use non-evaporated milk to cancel it out.

A very liquidy pie goes into the oven. Had to watch out for sloshing.

This rose and fell quite poetically.

[FHCx329] National Turkey Day/National Sardines Day

IT’S THANKSGIVING NATIONAL TURKEY DAY AND NATIONAL SARDINES DAY!

Thanks to the calendar, we’re stuck celebrating a strange holiday for Thanksgiving: sardines. SPAK have probably never actually had sardines before. We know they certainly have a reputation for being packed tightly together, and that they taste really fishy and oily. Leave it to SP to pick up a kind that is even more oily than usual.

We may hear from fans that we shouldn’t have just dug a fork into these, but used them in something else. Well we wanted the full experience. It… wasn’t magical. Not that we were revolted, but man, their reputation definitely precedes them.

But then we got to palette cleanse with a beautiful dinner at SParents for Thanksgiving. It was a truly lovely time, and SPad’s turkey was unbelievably tasty.

We have a lot of leftovers, which is great because tomorrow is National Leftovers Day, National Maize Day, and National Parfait Day.
