TWD: Caramel Pumpkin Pie

If I had a cooking bucket list, I will be marking these two items off today: 
  • make pie crust - DONE!
  • make pumpkin pie - DONE!
Yep, people THIS is a milestone for me.  Because 
  • I have never made pie crust from scratch (seriously why go thru all the trouble when you can buy it made at the supermarket?)
  • Pumpkin - hate it. 
  • I stayed far, far away from these baking items most of my life
And I was happy.

Then I meet Tom.

And Tom loves me.

And I love him back.

And being in a loving relationship you do things for each other that you don’t like to do.
