A friend brought some PECANS over from his last years crop and I
HAD

(my very favorite of all)
I am so proud that I FELT like being in the kitchen long enuf
to make a pie...

That's a GOOD thing

I took so many pictures of it because....


1. Proud of my accomplishment today...

AND

2. I think PECAN PIES are just plain pretty...
******************

HOW I WISH YOU COULD ALL COME BY FOR A COLD DRINK
and
A PIECE OF HOMEMADE PIE

(Now I am waiting for my sweet son-in-law to bring some APRICOTS off his trees...
Do we all ever love homemade

Pecan pies are pretty...I've not thought of them in that way, but they are!

And not only pretty to look at, but even better to eat.

Sounds like you are getting your strength back! That's a good thing!

That pecan pie looks absolutely scrumptious! I'm so happy you are feeling well enough to be in the kitchen long enough to complete such a masterpiece. Too bad I don't live a bit closer....

Wow, you're up and baking? I'm impressed!

That pie looks delicious! Oh my, I do love pecan pie! My mouth is watering.

Anita said...

Oh my gosh, I can almost TASTE that pie!
I never bake pecan pies because no one in my family likes them except me - everyone thinks they're too sweet and too rich... is there such a thing as too sweet or too rich?? I think not!!

Betty said...

BJ, I am glad you feel well enough to be in the kitchen, and the pecan pie looks wonderful. Those pecans look like the ones I order from Georgia every year from Atwell Pecan Company. It also looks like the pecan pie I make with the light colored filling instead of one made with dark Karo syrup.

Slice me a piece. I'll be right over.

Picket said...

Lordy girl I could go for a piece of that pie!!! But I am just so excited you felt like making it also...good for you sweetie...may you grow stronger and stronger with each passing day..love ya girl!

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Great looking pie. I can just taste it--AND those apricot fried pies. However, Mama Susan says, "Don't overdo." Glad you're feeling better, BJ.

Southern Lady said...

You take care now ...
