Okay he may not be a pie man, maybe a pie boy...but boy 'o boy does he love his pie.
So often, I find that people do not know where their food comes from...so, I am making sure the kiddos know pie doesn't come from the store, or even a can, but from real foods.
So here is our pumpkin pie...and an art lesson, and a math lesson...and whatever else you want to fit into this space.
|First one must have the perfect pumpkin.|
|Then we cut it in half and removed the seeds. The pumpkin|
went in the oven at 350 degrees.
|W. then drew pictures of the pumpkin seeds.|
|When done, we scooped all the pumpkin pulp out of the shells.|
|I made a simple whole wheat crust (the nutty flavor really|
complements the rich pumpkin flavor.) The trick is this:
Put the crust on the rack...then fill with pumpkin (less mess.)
|We then mixed up a standard fresh pumpkin recipe (more|
eggs so it gels well.) baked it...and devoured it (can it count as
a veggie for dinner?)
