Pumpkin carving and pie eating

Hello everyone. I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Ours was extra nice. Saturday, I hiked and it was an exceptionally beautiful day. We had clouds in Los Angeles and it was very clear.

Saturday night was sort of uneventful. I made pie crust and we hung out and relaxed.

Sunday morning, after some coffee and enjoying the paper I baked a Peach and a Pear pie. I also made a fall favorite, of ours, Butternut Squash soup. Some friends were coming over to carve Pumpkins later in the afternoon. So, I thought we might enjoy some pie too.

A Pirate ship . . . ARRRRRRRR! Lol

Sppoooky! BOO!

Hope you had a fun weekend too.

Best wishes, Dit

Jim, - Thank you for the compliment. I could never attempt to do what you just did to your fireplace. That, looks amazing!

photogreg, - Thank you for the compliments. You have many talents too.

Bridgeout, - amazing, I had wanted to make a pie since age 12. Was scared I would never ever get the crust right. Everyone tells me it is wonderful. So, my dear. Bake away! Give it a go!
