Squash Pie

This last weekend Marilyn, Drew's mom, gave us two squash that she had grown this summer. She thought she had planted Butternut Squash, but THIS is what really grew. It is called a Hubbard Squash. It was the oddest shape I had ever seen of a squash. I didn't know what to do with it at first, but then I decided to make a pumpkin pie out of it. OH. MY. GOODNESS. Half of one squash made 3 pies! It was the BEST "pumpkin" pie I have ever had. I had never made a pumpkin pie from scratch, let alone a squash pie from scratch. It wasn't hard at all, but it was a bit time consuming.
