Thanksgiving Fashion (inc. Pumpkin Pie recipe!)

A big *wave * to our friends in the US and wishing you all a happy thanksgiving. Being a quarter American myself and quite clearly a lover of cooking and eating food, I love to embrace a good thanksgiving meal and this Thursday that’s exactly what we’ll be doing; Turkey (or nut roast for me), cranberry, stuffing, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, green beans, gravy and of finishing with pumpkin pie, yum!

Whilst cooking your pumpkin pie, why not dress as something traditional –ish… like a Pilgrim…

Think black and white but with a twist – This Apron Fish dress from Vivienne Westwood is divine.  A cute Anthropologie apron over the top (to avoid spills…)  A black beret from Reiss  and La Catherine black suede boots from Clarks.

 All the while you could be cooking my favourite Pumpkin Pie recipe:

1 x 8 inch sweet pastry crust (I buy mine readymade but feel free to make your own)

2 eggs beaten

1 x 425gm can of Libby’s solid pack Pumpkin (available in Waitrose, wholefoods and various other stores)

175gm granulated sugar

½ tsp salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cloves

275 ml evaporated milk.

Pre-heat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4. Combine all the filling ingredients together in a large bowl and pour into your pastry case. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving with whipped cream, ice cream or maybe both.. enjoy!
