Simple as Pumpkin Pie

Damien Riley Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is like Mexican food has always been to me, it’s good for the soul. I can behave with the whipped cream but who doesn’t love putting extra on? I know people who do not enjoy pumpkin pie and they are like people who don’t like coffee: they’re not to be trusted.

Most every year of my adolescence I had a tradition. I would sit with a whole pie and a can of whipped cream on Thanksgiving watching the Twilight zone marathon. You’d have thought I’d seen the all by now but every year it comes on I see a new one. Spectacular series. Yes, I must confess that pumpkin pie is my weakness and my strength.

  1. I LOVE pumpkin pie. And it seems every year I add just a bit more whipped cream on top. As for Twilight Zone, I always remember it was so creepy when I was a kid. Now, not so much. Lol
