happy thanksgiving...and yes or NO to pecan pie :O)
i wish you all a restful, warm, full-belly thanksgiving with family, friends and loved ones. i'm very happy and thankful that i just woke up from a nap, sleep has been a bit on the back burner lately. i am a bit giddy to have a couple days away from the studio. chris and i are hanging out at the ranch (chris' folks place) with his folks and his brother, brian. pat and i each made a ton of food and after we finished eating it looked liked we didn't even make a dent. good by me....leftovers are my favorite part. it's always better the second time around. yay for tomorrow!!!
a big huge hug and thank you for your support over the years for being so supportive, inquisitive, and inspiring. i am truly grateful for your loyalty.
happy thanksgiving to you all............
p.s.--pie #1 tasted like crap and i thru it away!!
p.s.s.--pie #2 was much better, but my pecan pie skills still have a lot to be desired. my pecan pie doesn't hold a flame next to pat's or gaga's. more practice to come.....your probably thinking how hard can a pecan pie be??? well, one year i tried using a wheat crust. that one really sucked...you say crust, i say hockey puck!!! this year i made it vegan, but it wasn't the non-egg factor that messed it up. my first recipe called for molasses and chocolate chips. i wouldn't recommend that recipe again. that's pretty much all i could taste in that pie. AND, the second pecan pie had a really delicious pecan pie caramel-like flavor, "flax eggs" and all, but the crust on the bottom had disentegrated. so, i would happily take some pecan pie tips, anyone, anyone, bueller!!!!
