"I can TWEAK a cherry pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy....

Hi, Everybody... 

The West Texas weather is still just beautiful.
Grass is green...
flowers are still blooming...

but days are getting shorter...
FALL is knocking at the door, FOR SURE.




Cherry pie is one of my favorite pies of all times.

Nothing better than a HOMEMADE
pie but let me say right here and now...

Mizz Sara Lee can bake a mean PIE....

and when I get hungry for a pie...I don't always want to stop and whip out a homemade one....


I keep one of THESE in my freezer most of the time.


What makes them REALLY extra special
is buttering the top crust...

sprinkle SUGAR or Sugar Sub.....

and sprinkle on the CINNAMON.

....we all know cinnamon makes ANYthing better !!



I cut slits in the top crust and also stick my sweet little
BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS
in the middle and he just "blows out" the steam of the baking pie.


 The next time you have any two crusted pies in your freezer,
or the little hand pies,
try this little trick of mine....
well, to be truthful, it was my mama's little trick...

and you know how we all do what our mamas did....

There's so so many things I get hungry for that she cooked or baked for us....
no matter if I follow her recipe to the TEE,
it never tastes as good as hers.









....do you see all that red, sweet cherry juice flowing out over that tender crust, covered with butter, sugar and cinnamon....???

O, yes ma'am....
I am going to have a big, ole slice of this as soon as it gets cooler....

WHAAAAT....??????
WAIT....??????

I don't think so......


Here at Sweet Nothings,
we don't believe in waiting until a pie....especially a berry pie....
gets cool before cutting...


Noooooo, we like it like cobbler....
still warm when we add ICE CREAM to it....


O HONEY
.......

XOXO bj

*NOTE
As I am going in Tues. morning for an angiogram,
I may not be here to link to these parties.
I'll try linking TONIGHT (Mon.) if the parties are up...
if not....I'll do it when I get hone.
As always, I ask for your prayer that all will go well and I can be home soon.
THANK YOU....bj  

**ALSO...
TO THE WINNERS of the TEXAS SNAPS,
I will get these in the mail as soon as I get home from the hospital and 
moving around again.
I promise it won't be too long.
I can't drive yet as I'm having DOUBLE VISION ...
the only thing in the world that would be WORTH having double vision is to 
meet
JOHNNY DEPP on the street and......
SEE TWO OF HIM !!!

Immediate "knee mails" being offered up, that your tests go smoothly & show good results. I pray that God will guide the hands that take care of you today.
I used to work in the heart cath dept. of the Cleveland Clinic, so I know EXACTLY what you will be experiencing today. I know you will be fine.

Gentle Healing Hugs,
Rett
