Pumpkin Pie

I was given this recipe from a family member following a Christmas dinner, & whenever I have made it since it has been a huge hit!  Yesterday we had our Christmas lunch with our friends, & it reminded me again of how popular & yummy it is – so I knew I had to share it with you.  Perhaps you could even make it for your next family celebration?

This can be served as a main with your meat & veggies, but also enjoyed as a dessert with cream on top.

I am a fun-loving, sometimes crazy, 30-year-old that lives every moment as it comes... Unfortunately I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2004. This is about embracing my inner child; creating a bit of DIY; learning to love myself again; & not caring so much about fitting with society's expectations. I also want to showcase the amazing talent that we have in South Africa & support local wherever possible.
