Nothing unusual, really...except that a friend and I were talking about pie the other day (we both love certain kinds of pies--must be made from scratch). And today I looked into Parade Magazine and voila...an article about pie! Also a recipe for a Luby's pie in the food section. Woohoo! Of course, the holidays are coming up and food is on people's minds. What is your favorite kind of pie? I love homemade fruit pies...apple, cherry, berry, etc.

Punkin and sweet tater! :-)

My company has a day-before-Thanksgiving spread every Wednesday before. This year is Latin themed. We will have homemade tamales, pupusas, sour cream chicken enchiladas, queso, rice, guacamole, and desserts out the wazoo. Christmas is more low key on the food, but we have a White Elephant gift exchange. Lots of fun.

Have to find places to plant some of the three dozen or so daylilies still in containers. Most of the baby seedlings will be coming in to the enclosed porch for the Winter when we start having hard freezes. Still have blooming roses, Agastache, Mexican Heather, and some scraggly Rudbeckia. Keep trying them, but they don't like my yard.
Shrug!

Debra, you made me practically drool hearing about that dinner! I love Mexican food! All good kinds of pies...yummy! Oh...shown in the magazine article were these: cherry, pumpkin, pecan, chocolate hazelnut, key lime, macadamia nut, Mississippi mud pie, derby-pie, olallieberry, sweet potato, apple and Hoosier.
I think my chores are about over for the day. I trimmed some parts of the live oak that were touching the roof. That took a lot out of me!

Thought I was going to have a reprieve this Thanksgiving, third in 51 years, and go out to dinner. Then we asked another coupe to join us, who planned on having house guests, so now we're up to six. Then other friends of ours invited us to their house and I said why don't you come here.

So, needless to say, I cooking the standard turkey, sweet potatoes, etc.
