Flea market fun and Pumpkin fissure pie

i swear one of these days someone is going to knock on my door and give me an award for being the biggest procrastinator ever (or you know, an enormous kick in the ass). what i've managed to write so far this weekend is just pitiful. and now i'm even blogging! what the heck am i thinking! but you know, just in case anyone is actually reading this i felt compelled to share my wonderful bargains!! i took a peak in the fabric section of the local dept store yesterday, and found a pile of trims that had been reduced to 10 cents a metre. woohoo! i love hording trims. and the blue flower trim is so cute. i'm already fantasizing about a spring scarf in cotton with a flower pattern and this trim used as a fringe. and then i went to a flea market and picked up a whole pack (10 pretty skeins!!) of mercerised cotton. i love cotton. can never have enough cotton. i need to move to greece, or mexico or anyplace warm and sunny wear you have no choice but to wear cotton all the time. and besides that, it's pink! loud, blaring, in-your-face pink. nothing apologetic about this colour. and i'm gonna have to think of something fun to make with it, probably involving some equally bright contrasting colour. why? because sometimes i just enjoy being tacky. in fact, sometimes i enjoy it so much that i think when i get older i'll pray for white hair, so i can dye with some horribly cheap hair colour that instead of being brown or blonde or whatever, turns that eerie shade of purple. and then i can wear a matching boa and slippers with rhinestones, and call everyone dahling.
ahem. anyway. and i made pie. pumpkin pie. with a can of pumpkin puree that i brought back from canada and hid in the cupboard and totally forgot about til we went a whole 8 days without grocery shopping and i had to ransack the kitchen. i really love pumpkin pie, and the squash family, in all it's variations, is one of the things i miss from back home, but this is the first time i made a pumpkin pie myself. i found a recipe on the net that sounded pretty good, adjusted it a bit cuz i forgot to buy evaporated milk (if they even sell it here) and it turned out pretty darn tasty, even it does look like an earthquake happened to it.
first pumpkin pie evermmm...Pie.
i think i'll have to look for another recipe though or figure out how to adjust this one, cuz it's not nearly as dense as your typical pie, and although i kinda liked the lighter texture, the thing just falls apart. i'm figureing maybe some flour (of which it has none) to make it a bit drier, or maybe an egg. of course, this is all purely theoretical, as i think the few token pumpkins they sell here are already gone, and i don't think there's any place to order canned pumpkin online
