Years ago our family used to go and visit an American family we knew. They would usually invite us for thanksgiving and it was such a treat. Its a real shame that we don't celebrate it here in England in the same way. My good friend over the road popped in with a huge pumpkin on Saturday and i decided we were going to celebrate the best part..pumpkin pie...The babes got stuck in helping me scoop and wash the seeds. The result was delicious and although the kids are very suspicious of something that looks like a mud pie i am having no trouble in finishing it off.....there goes the diet!
