No yardwork

Mr. Cowboy said he couldn't do any yardwork today because there were two deer napping in the backyard. I forgive him this time because look what he made for dinner! Creamy Chicken Potpie washed down with an ice cold Moretti.

Pumpkin Pie

At this time of the year I try to empty the freezer; it needs to be defrosted so that come summer I can start filling it again. I'm reading a great book called Blue Plate Special by Kate Christensen; one of her friends cooks up a wonderful Thanksgiving feast in May. So when I found the last two blobs of frozen sugar baby pumpkin, I knew that I had to make a pie, what month it is just does not matter.
The crust is pure butter and it was a delight to roll it out. The filling recipe is from Barefoot Contessa.

The gift

Hyperacusis: Abnormal acuteness of hearing due to increased irritability of the sensory neural mechanism; characterized by intolerance for ordinary sound levels.

Why would someone who suffers from hyperacusis and tinnitus on top of that, suggest going to a movie?
