Pumpkin Pie made from Libby’s Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix in a can, eggs, evaporated milk, and Keebler Graham pie crust.
Oh, my. Look what I found in the cupboard just waiting for me which was technically meant to be made for Thanksgiving but never was! A pumpkin pie and a gingerbread mix for little ol’ me? Oh, yeah.
I was definitely not in the mood to make these from scratch today—but when I saw the can and box in the cupboard I knew I had enough energy to throw a couple of eggs into a bowl and stir.
Gingerbread from Betty Crocker Cake & Cookie Mix in a box, eggs, and water.
I just love gingerbread. I didn’t mean to eat the whole cake today—it just kind of happened. You know I only cut the thing into 4 servings anyway. So I ate two 2 pieces straight from the oven, then the other 2 pieces later in the evening after it was cold from the frig.
It was so light, fluffy, and moist. It’s just as good cold as it is warm. All I needed was a tall glass of freezing ice-cold milk to wash it down. Ahh, the good life.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, bake away into the day and night to bring smells of gingerbread and pumpkin into your home. No need to do everything from scratch when you can get the can and box versions in the store and save yourself some time once in a while.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Your meals of the day should probably consist of more than just pumpkin pie and gingerbread. Don’t follow my lead folks. Oops!
