Potpourri

HAPPY PIE DAY!

This is a Banaffee Pie, a recipe I discovered last summer.  I haven't quite decided what today's pie will be, but I'm leaning toward Shoo Fly Pie.  

The pie dish is one that my sister gave me many years ago.  She bought it somewhere in Maine.  It's salt glazed and a perfect size for pies.


WEATHER?!

We spent last several days outside, enjoying sunny weather in the fifties.  Proge has been barbecuing since Saturday.  Yesterday we woke up to twenty degrees, wind and snow.  Today is still going to be cold.  I take comfort that I don't live further north. Go to the weather site to see snow in the north in March.  I imagine ski areas are ecstatic!

  
THANKS

Last, but certainly not least, I huge thank you for all the kind thoughts and comments on the death of my brother, Bob.  In some ways it feels like he's off on one of his cruises.  Indeed, if he were still going strong he would be on his long planned round the world cruise.

It does feel strange to be the oldest in the family.  Does that make me the Matriarch?  Hmmmmm......we'll see, grasshopper; we'll see.....

Enjoy the week end.  It's supposed to start warming up. Yay!

As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*

  1. your baking puts me to shame, perhaps here in my new home, hope it warms up quickly for you, ah it must be strange to be the eldest, your brother is probably cruising around the world in the sky, what a view he has.

    1. Hi Linda.....Banaffee Pie is super easy. It's basically dulce de leche, bananas and whipped cream and best made for lots of guests so you don't end up eating way too much!

  2. Gorgeous Pie. Happy Pie Day to you too. Missing your brother is another thing to live with, and I like the idea of his round-the-world trip...it's probably correct! Yes, weather is being March...which is to be expected, but somehow I really wanted to just open the door and it be SPRING.

  3. Hi Suzi,

    The pie looks delicious and know that it must have tasted wonderful.
    Love the idea of your brother off on one of his cruises, this must bring you comfort, thinking this way.
    Sending hugs and hope that the weather starts to warm up there.

    1. Hi Midori....Matriarch sounds so dignified, which I am far from. It's 18F. this morning!
