Pies R Round: All 3.14 Of ThemThose of you who have met me know that I look as though I devour an entire pie on a daily basis, but the truth is, I don't care for pies or most sweet desserts at all. However, I absolutely LOVE to make them, and tomorrow is my big annual Dessert-Making Day!
On the agenda: Apple Pie. Cherry Pie. Pecan Pie. Pumpkin Pie. Sweet Potato Pie. Persimmon Pudding. Fudge.
I also make the yeast rolls the day before the DAY, since on the DAY, the entire oven is pre-empted by the turkey. I like to make a lot, so I can deliver them around town to various friends.
The house, which is all shiny and clean (we won't talk about the downstairs) because of the appraisal today, will smell like a bakery starting around noon, because if you think I'm getting up early, you're wrong, wrong, wrong.
I never get up early unless I have no choice. I don't even like the feel of the air in the early morning. I love the late afternoon, yesssssss, and the darkness, and the howling of the wolves, those children of the night. . . .
Then on Thursday, my mother and my sisters and their families are coming down for Thanksgiving Dinner, and it's a time I look forward to all year long. I wish my brother and his family could come but that would be difficult because
I hope they like pie.
