Pumpkin Pie {Birthday& Thanksgiving}

by priscillamtizwa

My lovely husband turned 20 last Saturday, and  because he love the Pumpkin Pie I made for thanksgiving so much, I decided to surprise him with the same pie on his Birthday. We got snowed/ iced in over the weekend, so we were stuck at my Dad’s place for 3 days. Thankfully my Dad and I decided to get all the groceries we needed for my husbands birthday, the day before the crazy weather.

Anyways…back to that Pumpkin Pie, I never made a Pumpkin Pie before and was very nervous to make one for thanksgiving. I was  determined to find a good Pumpkin Pie recipe that was simple ,healthy and  also very delicious. So I stumbled across this recipe HERE. And like I always do, I changed a few things….

– For the Crust I substituted the Hazelnuts with Pecans.

– For the filling I substituted the Coconut Milk with 1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt with only 1 1/2 cup of Pumpkin Pure

– To replace Cornstarch I whisked two Organic Eggs to the filling.

For Lunch I made us Homemade Burgers. My husband has been graving a Burger for quite some time so I decided that it would be a great idea to make homemade Burgers for his Birthday lunch. Which I definitely made sure that the Burgers were healthy ones. I used Organic Ezekiel Burger Buns and made Sweet Potato fries from scratch.

We enjoyed the Snow very much, for my husband was able to stay home with me for 5 days, due to the weather.
