I've started doing this with the boys during evening prayers - we each finish with a three word happy "story" about the day, or how we feel, something good that happened or whatever.

So last night

Me: It gets better
DS11: I'm in bed
DS15: Got my phone (he got a much coveted new phone for his birthday)

So anyone else want to write their 3 word happy story?

I've never had pumpkin pie - it's on my "to make" list.

Anyone have a nice recipe?

I usually make it with pumpkin puree, but this year I was so busy I just used EDSmith's pie filling which calls for an additional egg and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Only skim e-milk left in grocery, so I substituted some 18% cream. I did make the pie crust myself.

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes then lower to 350 for 35-40 minutes until knife comes out clean. No need to blind bake.

I'd also trust this blog for a good pie filling:

https://smittenkitchen.com/2014/11/classic-pumpkin-pie-with-pecan-praline-sauce/

And this YT channel for good pate brisee (make double/triple the dough you need - it freezes beautifully.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9KH0HH-SnA

It's SUPER tasty.
