Oops...I Forgot the Milk in My Pumpkin Pie!

I'm battling a cold that came on fast and hard. My friend wondered if maybe I shouldn't drive home from the gym because I wasn't quite with it.

My post-workout plan was to do my Thanksgiving baking. I joked about forgetting pie ingredients. Sure enough, I forgot the three cups of milk that went into my double recipe.

The pie set just fine.

Curiously, I went ahead and cut into it, not trusting that it would be suitable for company.

It was, as you might expect, a little dense, and the spices were more prominent, but it was delicious and I wouldn't be embarrassed to serve it. I'll save it just in case we run out of the normal pie that is now in the oven.
