What the Beck????
Today’s Recipe and Location: Pumpkin Cream Pie
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
I figured out that there are 363 calories if 10 servings are made or 453 calories if 8 slices are cut. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
This one is not only creamy, but dreamy! Yes dreamy, because it is light and down right yummy. I love pumpkin a lot, but this cream pie is great for summer or Thanksgiving. It has a great deal of flavor, and I loved it. When I make it again, and I definitely will do this, I will even add the extra graham cracker crumbs for garnish. I was being really calorie conscious, and skipped the final beautifying step, but next time I will do a little splurge and add the little bits of goodness.
I totally cheated and used a store bought crust. I had two in the basement, and this was a great way to use it up. Sorry, Ree.

Bucket List Update
1935 Ruggles of Red Gap
starring: Charles Laughton and Charles Ruggles
plot – A trained English butler comes to the United States to work for a cattle baron.
I loved this movie! The premise is great – coming from a formal English home to a cattle ranch. It has humor and drama, and I loved every minute of the show.
1936 San Francisco
starring: Clark Gable, Jeanette McDonald
plot – The story of two men who want the same woman. One of the men is a saloonkeeper and the other from Nob Hill.
This was another surprising movie with great special effects. The earthquake seemed so real and horrible. It is amazing to me that people wanted to live there after such a devastating event.
starring: Bette Davis and Henry Fonda
plot: Davis plays a spoiled, wealthy young Southerner. Her behavior causes her problems.
This was a great movie and I loved watching Bette Davie. She is a true actress. I felt she originally got what she deserved and I liked that she wanted to redeem herself and win him back.
1940 The Philadelphia Story
starring: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart
plot – Hepburn prepares for her second wedding. She is pursued by her ex-husband and a reporter, who are both making advances toward her.
I really liked this movie. I found it funny and entertaining. The three lead actors are such professionals that it is a joy to watch all three of them.
1943 Heaven Can Wait
starring: Don Ameche, Gene Tierney, and Marjorie Main
plot – a man is sent to Hell, but once there he has to prove that that is where he belongs.
This movie was good. I can’t think of a lot of the detail,s which says it isn’t outstanding to me. I do remember a lot of girl chasing and the like.
