Oh, meant to mention the shitty pie I made. The filling should be awesome -- roasted a pie pumpkin, used yogurt and Chinese Five Spice and all kinds of wild and thrilling ingredients. But. Never used premade pie crusts before, so didn't take the time to realize that the non-frozen ones were not intended for eXxXtreme pie-making. So baked the filling in a glass pie tray, then transferred it to the premade crust, baked for ten more minutes, and VOILA! Backwards pumpkin pie.
Will start on the wild turky (the bird, not the delicious drink) soon.
