A Burnt Orange Kind of Thanksgiving!!

Texas Longhorns BEAT the Texas Aggies 27-25 on Thanksgiving Night!
Oh, What a game...I should have hit the BLACK Friday midnight openings because I was wide awake for hours after the game. The ATM aggies are leaving the BIG XII for the this is possibly the last rivalry game for years to come...we may still play sometime in the future but the games will never mean the same. The UT/ATM game has been a family tradition in my family since I was born....I attended every game with my parents and grandparents (my Grandma was the only Aggie in our family)  from the age 1-27 then as my life got more independent...I missed games..but I still go to every home game and tried to get to College Station every chance I could....I should have gone this year...WHAT A GAME!! It is Goodbye to A&M...just as our fight song says....Good Luck Aggies....Good Luck with LSU every year...GEAUX Tigers!!

Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
And it's goodbye to A&M.
Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
And we'll put over one more win.
Texas Fight, Texas Fight,
For it's Texas that we love best.
Hail, Hail, The gang's all here,
And it's good-bye to all the rest!

Yea Orange! Yea White!
Yea Longhorns! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Texas Fight! Texas Fight,
Yea Texas Fight!
Texas Fight! Texas Fight,
Yea Texas Fight!

Matthew's Grand Prize Pumpkin Pie ~ 2011

8 oz Creme Cheese, Softened
2 C Canned Pumpkin
1 C Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/4 t Salt
1 egg, Plus 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 C half-and-half
1/4 C melted butter
1 t vanilla extract
1 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/4 t ground clove

Whipped Creme, for topping
Preheat oven to 350-degrees

Bake DEEP dish pie crust as indicated (if it's not a deep dish pie crust, you'll be able to make 2 regular-depth pies...not as good, but will work!)

For filling: in a large mixing bowl, beat creme cheese with hand mixer. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined. Add the sugars and the salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, half-and-half and melted butter, and beat until combined. Finally add the vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. Beat until combined.

Pour filling into the warm prepared pie crust, bake for 50 minutes or until the center is "set". Place pie on wire rack until cooled to room temperature. Cut and top with whipping creme.
