Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Caramel Flan

Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Caramel Flan

Last week I’d mentioned that Mr. Non-Compliant seemed to have designs on a pumpkin caramel flan.

Turns out that he left the flan recipe out because he thought I would enjoy it. I used to think that flan was a plain and rather unexciting dessert.

As I’ve matured, I enjoy a taste of it now and then. He’s always loved it. 

Guess he’s got more mature taste buds than me.

When I asked him what he’d prefer for today’s dessert he replied, “Pumpkin pie, of course!” He’s a purist and adding pumpkin and caramel to flan is, well, very wrong.

That’s what I thought. Lucky for both of us, I made pumpkin pie.

He’s grilling the turkey over charcoal. I’m making the sides—mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, cranberry jelly (out of the can, for Mr. NC), green beans with mushrooms, gluten free stuffing and of course, pumpkin pie.

It’s our traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Saturday I will make the traditional turkey pot pie.

It’s all amazing.

Thank you for faithfully following my blog this year. I appreciate you!

Wishing you and yours a day of amazing food, happy times, and many blessings.

With much gratitude and love,
