Images of Thanksgiving

How my mother did it: With Bell's Seasoning (which I can get here in Virginia) and One-Pie Squash (which I can't).


My mother never made pumpkin pie, always squash. And she followed the recipe on the One-Pie label. It's lighter, a little more custardy than your typical pasty pumpkin pie. But really very similar.

I hope they never change the packaging, outdated as it is. Just put the unresealable box in a ziploc after opening. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

  1. Bells seasoning has been a staple in our family for at least 100 years and probably much more. Always have a box handy.

  2. Last year, I had a couple of butternut squash left from the garden. Steamed 'em, then made pie out of them using the recipe on the Borden's Sweetened Condensed milk can. Yummy.

    But what is this "Bell's" of which you speak??

    1. I'm going to use fresh squash, too, tho not from the garden. Will follow One-Pie recipe.

  3. It's to flavor the stuffing. My mother's stuffing had just a few ingredients: bread, chopped onion sauteed in butter, salt, pepper, and Bell's. Old-school New England, I guess. Have a great feast!
