Stinky Pie

While the ingredients that make up the standard Thanksgiving meal are often hard to find at MAF’s overseas programs, sometimes it’s the lack of electricity that puts a kink in menu planning. Here’s how Nancy Burton, Kinshasa (WDRC) remedied that situation last year.

Stinky Pie
No Bake Pumpkin Pie RecipeSince we were still without electricity, I decided to try a recipe for “no-bake pumpkin pie that I could make on the gas stove. Pumpkin is not available here so I used a local squash that looks and tastes a lot like pumpkin. I made some whipped topping and added it in order to make my pie prettier. Here, whipped topping is called KlopKlop, which I think is funny – makes me think of horses walking on pavement. I used mini-chocolate chips to make a “P,” then decided someone might mistake the pumpkin pie for pecan pie, and added a “u.” The result: my pie was labeled “Pu,” as in “peeyew.” Oh well. There was none left, so I guess it wasn’t too bad. I’ve included the recipe below in case you’d like to try it.

Thanksgiving Day we joined several other missionary families for a feast and a time of praising God. Hearing others tell stories of things God has done for them is always encouraging and exciting––and good for the soul.

Whether you serve up an oven-baked or no-bake pie, I hope your soul is well-fed this Thanksgiving as you visit with friends and family and celebrate all that we have to be thankful for in Christ Jesus.
