Happy Thanksgiving!

Kabocha Pumpkin Pie

Absolutely no energy left for Thanksgiving dinner project this year. You know why.
And I'm going to be in my hometown this weekend, helping mom with some kind of tea ceremony event there. I'm leaving early tomorrow morning.
So, this was all I could do for Thanksgiving 2006. At least I baked this myself (after I came back from shooting photos of a steam locomotive) today.

Have a nice weekend! :D

I'm dying from curiosity. Please give us some small hint of your background. I'm pretty sure you're Japanese/Japanese, but I get a very USA vibe from your writing. Especially Thanksgiving?! Did your family live in the states? Were you an exchange student or college student? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! Just a little scrap of info.

Happy Turkey Day! (Even if I'm a little late.)

That's a pre-made crust, isn't it? Those are perfectly fluted edges.

Nope. The crust is store-bought. :P
Hope you had a happy thanksgiving weekend.

Thanks. My weekend was pretty stormy ;)
Hope you had a good one.

Well, I have lived in the U.S. for about 4 years in total. It was more than 10 years ago, so my English has turned into Engrish now, and I don’t think I have such a strong Southern accent any more (but some people still do notice it.)

Happy Thanksgiving. Did you eat turkey?

Yep! It’s a pre-made one. All I did was making the filling out of kabocha (imported from NZ) and whipping the cream. It didn’t take long.

Wow, thank you. Sometimes they are good to eat, too. (Not always) ;)

Yeah, it was sweet, but not too sweet.

Hi! So nice to hear from you. Sorry I haven’t been to your site for a long time.
Thanks for the new URL. I just saw your turkey and the stuffing. Boy, they look soooo good. Congrat on your great success! :D
