Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Pie

It’s the best week of the year: Thanksgiving week!

Short week, long weekend and more pie than you know what to do with. JK. We’re obvi going to eat it.

What dish are you in charge of at your Thanksgiving dinner this year? The BF and I are heading to both of our families this year so I’m on the hook for six (!) pies. Seven if you count our post turkey day friendsgiving. Good thing I find pie making pretty therapeutic. (Except when I burnt the butter twice today…)

The problem was…shamrock shakes aren’t sold at every McDonald’s. So it was essentially a month long scavenger hunt. With no clues. 🤷‍♀️

But because people are lazy there’s an app for everything, this year there’s a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Finder. Kids these days…they don’t understand the struggle of the shamrock shake search.
