Did you know that we are getting a TURKEY? They go past our house all the time, so the boys were pretty excited to learn that Thanksgiving is about Turkeys.
There is a lot more to it than the bird, and I want to make a yummy meal that all of us enjoy. So I wanted to test the sweets, so my sugar-eating husband doesn't miss the sugar-- or at least thinks the dessert is worth eating.
My first experiment was making the GAPS Pumpkin Pie recipe from Internal Bliss.
First we made and cooked the crust. We replaced the sugar (honey) with brown-tinged bananas.
Then we made the filling.
And the taste?
Fine. A little like bananas. Ha. But also a bit like pumpkin pie. I need to up the spice and lower the bananas (I used 3 and could use 2 instead). It would also be better with a more browned crust-- mine was still a little white in parts when I filled it.
Overall? OK. My younger son liked it. My older son wasn't hungry. I had a few bites. It was a bit rich. Meh.
