that.) so, i decided that i would get around trying this bourbon pecan pie recipe i've been wanting to make for over a year. the recipe is from the recipes from home that i've mentioned a few times in the past, and like everything else i've made from that book, it was pretty awesome. it's the kind of pecan pie that has chopped up becans in it instead of whole ones, and it has just a touch of bourbon to give it a little zing. the crust is flakey and buttery and just a teeny bit sweet. i highly recommend this and will definitely make it again. endorsement: this book also contains my standards for pumpkin pie, apple pie, and chocolate pudding as well as the recipes i use to make roasted chicken and cumin crusted pork chops. after the pie was ready to go, i made belly buttons for the hippie. i had never heard of these until i met him, but it's what his grandmother always did with leftover pie crust dough--you just roll out the dough, brush it with melted butter, sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar, and then roll it up and cut it into little slices. bake it alongside the pie. kids and hippie's love them!
in other news, it's SLEETING outside. what the hell??!
also, i have no time to knit today in spite of the fact that it's cold and rainy and i have NEW YARN. this is just not right.
