Beyond the Book: Pumpkin Pie

 Our Thanksgiving holiday wasn't as big this year because of Covid 19, but I prepared all of our old favorite foods, and those of us who were together were thankful for each other.

I made my special pumpkin pies of course. I just don’t think it would be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, and I have a great yet simple recipe.I thought I’d share the recipe with you because who says you can't have pumpkin pie for Christmas? Give it a try sometime. I think you’ll like it
