every year around thanksgiving, pumpkin pie makes me miss my dad. it is one of my favorite desserts, and it was my dad's very favorite. ever since i can remember we would make it together. it's such a simple recipe. he didn't really need my help to make it, but he always wanted my help. it's something i miss and cherish. for the past three years i still make him his pumpkin pie and eat a slice just for him! so, i'm thankful for pumpkin pie and the memories i cherish because of it.
