Are You A Pumpkin Purist?

Mr ShowMe and I are on our own for Thanksgiving this year. We saw his folks off at the airport today for their flight out to his sister's for the holiday. Mom gave me a turkey dressing pep talk, so I'm all psyched up for the challenge now.

I was off work today and did some surfing for recipes to finalize the Thanksgiving menu. We were looking for side dishes. I love the traditional green bean casserole, but Mr ShowMe is indifferent about it. In our quest for recipes we kept finding pumpkin recipes.. Yeah, I know, we were supposed to be looking for side dishes, but the desserts kept distracting me.

And while a lot of these pumpkin recipes look good...


I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to pumpkin. I just want the pie filing, in a pie crust, and topped with a dollop of Cool Whip. Yum!

Are you cooking for Thanksgiving? Is your menu all lined out?
Thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. We'll have a quiet dinner but I'm cooking all of our favorites! I love pumpkin....and I'm really looking forward to having sweet potatoes! ♥

  2. Mmm, those all look delicious, but the pie tops it!
