Pecan Pie

For Thanksgiving, Mama made fresh pies, with love!     Oh so good!!      She made 2 pecan, 1 coconut cream, 2 sweet potato, and 1 chocolate.    Did you hear that, Katie??    ONLY ONE chocolate!!   My worst Thanksgiving fear came true!!     Oh, horrible day!        It was a fight to the death, between Bro. and me!!      (No, neither one of us died, but the pie sadly didn’t survive!)

Since there isn’t any evidence to show you on that one, I decided to blog about the pecan pie.      And, it is pah-cahn, not pee-can, for those not from the South.     (I’m so sorry for you, that you weren’t born here.)

Here is the way I brought it home, packaged so prettily by Mama.

slob, humor, pretty pie    Then, revealed in all its gooey glory!  slob, humor, homemade pecan pie!!

Nuttin else like a pecan pie, made with love by Mama!!       Except 2!!  

 

(Word of warning:  Do NOT ever research “licking lips”, unless you are prepared for some visual trauma!      Why do people have to be so nasty???? )

I only took 1 slice,

slob, humor, slice missing

What do you mean 1/4 of the pie is NOT 1 slice?? It certainly is!!

My breakfast:

Hey look, Gail!    And Dolly!   And Lynn!     I’m becoming a food blogger!     LOL    (NOT!!)        I’d have too much trouble not eating it all first!

Thank you, Anne!!

I’m so thrilled and excited!!  My 2nd Blogger Award!!

You like me, you really like me!

This is what Anne said about me:

“Purple Slob In Recovery  – Very encouraging blog which I enjoy reading daily. She describes her life as a mother, wife and grandmother. She has a very positive side to life.”

Wow, so wonderful to hear such good things about myself!!

Rules:

1. Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you.

2. Share ten random facts about yourself.

3. Nominate ten more bloggers who are fairly new to blogging.

Ten Random Facts:

1.  I’m finding out I like a clean house!  (I know! I was shocked too!)

2. Just bought my first (all by myself) home.  (A $500 trailer.  It was a steal!!)  ALERT:  New post coming soon!    (That was it, btw.)

3.  I read books under the covers , with a flashlight, ALL the time as a kid.

4.  I even read in the tub.  (No, I didn’t splash and ruin them.)

5.  I read while walking down the halls, in high school.  (I’m tall, so I held the book lower than my eyes, and never ran into anyone.  … Okay, mostly never….. Okay, hardly ever…..  Okay, once or twice)

6.  I was Sargent At Arms, in my DCT club as a junior.  I was in charge of making sure the boys wore a tie.  I once ran one down across the front lawn, and tackled him.  He put on the tie.

7.  I fell in puppy love with a guy, when I was a senior in high school, just because he was 6’7″.  He was 25, so he wouldn’t date me until I showed him my license, that I was already 18.  Smart guy!!

8.  My second husband died just 2 months after our wedding.

9.  I knew my children were girls, as soon as I found out that I was pregnant, both times.

10. I don’t miss Coke, and doughnuts as much as I thought I would.   (Update, I was only fooling myself.)

* Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
* Answer the 10 questions given to you.

* Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers of their choice and let them know that they have been nominated.

* Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog.

Here they are:

1. On the bad days, how do you cheer yourself up?

A- Singing hymns, and Scripture songs always helps.  Also, talking to my brother!

2. Which is your favourite food?

3. How do you let go?
A- Read a novel, or color a picture.

4. How much do you value ‘silence’?
A- So, so much!  My house is finally quiet after many years, and I just sit, soaking it in.

5. Will you hurt someone intentionally or lie to make them feel better?
A-  No, I don’t intentionally hurt people.  Sometimes I do, because I often speak before I think.  Trying to work on that bad habit.

6. Do you have faith in humanity? why or why not?
A- No, not really.  I know humanity is fallen, from Adam and Eve sinning.  Our only hope is through Jesus Christ, and His atoning blood.
