Last Sunday mornin' Roy said, "I'm watching football all day long, what are you doing?"
"I'm baking a pecan pie."
He giggled! "Good luck with that!"
I will NEVER live down Pecan Soup!!
With no pressure for time...or stress from work...I set out to bake the perfect pecan pie.
So we're clear on this....it's "puh-con"....not "pee-can".
I followed the recipe to the letter.
Checked and rechecked the oven to make sure it's set right.
45 minutes later I pulled THE most beautiful pecan pie out of my oven and set it on the cabinet!! It was perfection in a glass dish!
At Granny's I set it next to her pumpkin....in front of my sister. RubyJune looked it over very quietly, and then she said, "Did you bake this?"
"I sure did!"
She picked it up and was lookin' at the bottom....I thought maybe checkin' to see if my crust was golden flaky brown....just light Loretta Lynn's!!
Hey! Me and the Pillsbury Doughboy can make crust!!!
Her hubby asked her, "What are you doing?"
"I'm lookin' for the sticker from the store! I know her better than you do!"
Some days....I can't catch a break!!
