Happy Thanksgiving Lovelies,
Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year for me. I love being able to see all of my family and catch up and of course, I love the food. But who doesn’t, right? I love the entire reason for Thanksgiving and I feel like we should have a Thanksgiving more than one time a year, am I right?! This year, I am thankful to be able to spend my day with family, for being able to celebrate my little man’s SECOND Thanksgiving, for being able to go to nursing school and for being able to connect with you all!
There is just so much to be thankful for this year!
I know I’m not alone when I say that pumpkin pie is the best thing about Thanksgiving so I’ve decided to include my all time favorite pumpkin pie recipe! My mom has used this exact recipe for years now and it was always my favorite! It’s called Silky Pumpkin Pie. It’s honestly the best pumpkin pie because of the super “silky” texture to it (fun fact: when I was little I used to call it “slicky” pumpkin pie)!
3-Can Silky Pumpkin Pie
1 (15 ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1 cup canned evaporated milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position, preheat oven to 300 degrees
2. In a saucepan, heat pumpkin, salt and spices to blend flavors, about 5 minutes. Add milks; cook until heated through
3. Puree eggs and yolks in a blender. With blender running, add pumpkin filling a spoonful at a time at first, then faster as eggs heat up; blend to form a silky texture. Pour warm filling into pre-baked pie shell.
4. Bake until a thin-bladed knife inserted near center of pie comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on rack.
Let me know what y’all think of this recipe, it is to die for!
I love being able to get all dolled up for special occasions (like stuffing my face with the pumpkin pie I mentioned above ^^^), I think it is so much fun to be able to dress up since I am typically seen wearing scrubs. Its a nice change for once. Here are today’s outfit details:
Top: This super comfy cowl neck sweater is perfect for winter. You can find it HERE (Ps: it is 33% off!!!)
Skirt: I am loving this velvet skirt! I actually wore it to a concert over the summer, so it’s very versatile. You can find it HERE! (AND Nordstrom is price matching Madewell this week, so this skirt is 25% off!)
Shoes: THESE booties are similar to the ones I have on, but I think THESE would be super cute with this outfit also
What are YOU thankful for this year?
Hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
