Let us come before His presence with Thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise
unto Him with psalms...Psalms 95: 2
Mother baked pumpkin pies.
For the Thanksgiving table...
As long as she was able.
It was a treat for sore eyes!
One time the pumpkin
Filling in her pies,
Gave us and the invited kin
An unexpected surprise!
None complained about its taste
Not a crumb would go to waste...
We would eat this pretty dessert,
And no feelings would be hurt.
Then Mom took her first bite...
She exclaimed with vim and vigor~
"OH NO! .. I forgot to add the sugar;
You've all been so polite!!!!... "
Poetry by me, AJP
This is a true story...We all laughed about it afterward..My aunt who had diabetes thought Mom left out the sugar for her sake.
Both my parents and my aunt and uncle are no longer with us, but the memories remain to this day..I baked these pumpkin pies yesterday shown on this picture but I wasn't intending to make so many...The filling exceeded the two pie shells and I ended up with three pies instead of two...However, I did remember to add the sugar:)
