Sweet Pie, Friday the 13th

I made my first sweet potato pie this past week, my dears, and I think I’m hooked. I’ll need to play with the recipe some more–I think I want condensed milk for the custard bit instead of whole, and there wasn’t nearly enough cinnamon to suit me–but that’s no hardship. Canned pumpkin is fine, home-roasted better, home-roasted butternut squash better yet though there is always a hint of stringiness. But for smoothness, delicacy, and richness, I think I’m going to have to go with sweet potato pie.

It’s always nice to find out new things. The kids aren’t quite fans, but still, they haven’t met a homemade pie they won’t make a dent in for my sake at least.

Happy Friday the 13th. May Freya and her cat-drawn chariot bring you joy today.
