ginger bread and pumpkin pie

The pre-thanksgiving cooking has commenced!

Tonight is ginger bread and pumpkin pie prep. Gotta bake those pumpkins down first, although it looks like we won’t be getting 6 pies out of this batch. I think the real pie baking will take place tomorrow morning (letting the pumpkin cool is critical), and I may have to go get more if I decide that a single pie isn’t going to do it for us.
