As Visions of Pumpkin Pie Danced in my Head
Last night, I dreamt I ate a whole pumpkin pie...and it was delicious. Here is a little fun fact about pumpkin pie:
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020 pounds and measured just over 12 feet long. It was baked on October 8, 2005 by the New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers in Ohio, and included 900 pounds of pumpkin, 62 gallons of evaporated milk, 155 dozen eggs, 300 pounds of sugar, 3.5 pounds of salt, 7 pounds of cinnamon, 2 pounds of pumpkin spice and 250 pounds of crust.
Thanksgiving is 10 days away. I can't believe it! When I was just a kiddo, it seemed like the holidays took FOREVER to get here. Now, I'm kinda an adult and they get here fast! I'm so excited! I love the holidays. The first thing I will do on Thanksgiving morning is watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Did you know Felix the Cat was the first balloon introduced into the parade in 1927 and was completely filled with air!
