Happy 1st day of Spring! I didn’t realize today was the day until I read it online. It was barely mentioned. Seems there are much bigger things to report on these days.
I’m also wrapping up a week of vacation which was nice. No, i didn’t go to SXSW. Maybe one of these days I’ll go. It falls during the kids spring break so Tammi and I took them to Six Flags Fiesta in (where else) Fiesta Texas, and the Schlitterbahn on Galveston Island. Roller Coasters and Water Slides. And ridiculous crowds, all having fun.
There was also quite a bit of gardening to be done today and it was my day to make dinner. I’m thankful that I only have to do this one day a week. I couldn’t make the pie until later in the evening. This week, I made Easy Chess Pie. It’s sweet pie but isn’t custardy or mering-y. And it is easy…
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup (half a stick) butter
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. cornmeal
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend 3 to 5 minutes until well mixed. Pour into your pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Cool before serving.
I had a small bite and it’s consistency is fluffy and the taste is sweet. I guess it tastes like Sugar Pie. Which is the name of my imaginary funk band that I just thought up. It’s been a very productive week.
