{ ~ Pumpkin Pie ~ }

Pumpkin Pie in the spring.

This is our favorite pumpkin pie recipe.

And there is a story with it.

No, I do not make my own crust,
but maybe one day I will.

After getting married and buying a house,
my dear friend, Sharon from high school
moved in next door to us with her husband.

Whenever I needed an ingredient for a
recipe she usually had what I needed.

Over the years our children grew up and
played together all year round.
In the winter they sledded down the big feild
between our houses,
and in the summer they came swimming.

As her family grew she taught them
about giving.  When the first pumpkin
from their garden was ready, they made
us this amazing Pumpkin Pie.  It  disappeared
quickly and Mr. Sweet (aka my husband)
LOVED it. 
That was probably when I started
making pies.  It is the simplest recipe
and so good with fresh pumpkin.
Thanks, Sharon
your kindness will always be remembered!

She moved now and I miss her.
