aka “The Best Thanksgiving Vegetable”
At Thanksgiving, I usually serve myself a two-bite slice of turkey, a tablespoon of mashed potatoes, and three green beans. (Okay, slight exaggeration.) Then, while everyone else complains of stomach cramps and food comas, I still have plenty of room for dessert and get first dibs on the pumpkin pie!
This past year, I baked Chocolate Covered Katie’s crustless version, and I ate nearly a third of the pie by myself after the feast. It was that good!
To curb my temptation to eat that much pie again just two months later, I mixed up individual-sized custards instead. And I added extra pumpkin, which made it really creamy — and meant that I could count it as an entire serving of vegetables too!
