Grandpa cooks 5000 pies

These nice young gals are standing in front of their grandpa's handywork. He has some help from the other guys at a local fraternal organization. Together they have put out thousands of pumpkin pies which are sold at a local pumpkin festival. Spices have to be purchased from the local Amish community because only they have 50lbs of pumpkin pie spice for sale. Pie filling is mixed up in 5 gallon batches with a paint mixer attached to a power drill.... talk about a stick blender! Many of the pies are sold before they are made as local people put in pre-orders. The rest are sold from a booth at the local festival.

... some of the good people in my family

What you see are the pies hot out of the oven. They are packed up soon as they cool. Both convection and regular ovens are used to process as many pies as possible.

Nieces! They grow up so quickly.

Oh my, Michael, those nieces of yours have beautiful eyes. Of course, they are beautiful girls.

Wow, 5,000 pies, that kind of boggles my mind! I love pumpkin pie, though, yum.
