Ok I swear this will be my last pumpkin recipe of the season. Thanksgiving is in 4 days and I’m sick of looking at random Tupperware’s of leftover pumpkin purée in the fridge. After Thursday I’m officially moving on to gingerbread.
I’m really excited about these Mini Pumpkin pies. First because they taste like the REAL DEAL, crust included. And second because I have a fetish for all things “mini”. I saw the concept of using mason jar lids to make mini pies on Pinterest and thought it was so cool! The idea is that they act as a mini springform pan. I immediately busted out my Ball mason jar lids which I got from Amazon and are BPA-free.
Some might bust my balls for cooking out of them in the oven, but my response is “Live a little, this is a once and a blue moon occasion to make cute little pies/tartlets for holiday parties, so STFU.”
Speaking of which, I got my first hate comment yesterday on my blog. It made me want to curl up into a ball and die. Ok not really. It just makes me sad that some people have nothing better to do than sit at home on the computer and be an Internet bully. It was something along the lines of “I’m not pinning this recipe because you dropped the F bomb and you’re trying to be funny but you aren’t even intelligent.”
Le sigh. Can’t people just love me and flower me with attention and praise, and tell me I’m skinny and have flawless skin? IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?!
Oh wait never mind, I’m not in highschool anymore. Moving right along.
So what do I do when I feel like crap? Make a list of at least 3 things that fill me with gratitude:
1.) Knowing that everything is exactly as it should be in the Universe, whether I like it or not.
2.) Listening to “Afterlife” by Arcade Fire.
3.) The growth of SBP and creating new adventures in the kitchen.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! What are you grateful for?
