Instructions on the side of the can

Dale came back from his nephews place with a few bags of extra food. (I am not too sure about that story.) Part of the food included a can of pumpkin and a graham cracker pie crust.

The conspiracy included Trisha baking a pie and dropping it off at his nephew's along with a cake that Dale is baking and a few other things.   If I take the back way, it isn't too far out of my way.

Pleading ignorance on how to bake a pumpkin pie, Dale asked me to bake it. (Don't be fooled! Dale is a excellent at cooking, baking and canning.)  I picked up the can, read off the ingrdients glanced over the top of my glasses with that "really??" look.  Then I sent him to the grocery store for the right pie crusts and a can of evaporated milk.  We had the rest of the supplies.

I followed the directions on the side of the can.

The final instruction says, "cool on wire rack for two hours."  LOL - really!?!? They cooled for twenty inutes. One went in the fridge for half an hour. Then I had a normal size slice and Dale ate nearly half the pie.  (We had part of a carton of whipping cream in the fridge. It got whipped up with vanilla and a couple tablespoons of powdered sugar.)  Mmmmm good.
