Before Chris left he told me to take my year apart from him to do something I've always wanted to do. Well, we all know that I successfully made a quilt. [If you missed that you can see it here.] So now, I have moved on to goal number two: learn how to make a completely homemade pie.
I've never had pecan pie. Honestly, I think it looks rather gross. However, since every man I've ever met loves this not-so-appetizing flavor, I decided to learn how to make it!
I must say, for my first try it turned out really pretty. The crust came out perfectly golden, much to my surprise! It really was a lot easier
than I thought. Since I'm not exactly sure how it's supposed to taste I can't really say how well it turned out in that department though. That's one of the many down sides to having Chris gone; no one is around to taste the man food! Oh well, at least it looked pretty! Look out Martha Stewart! There's a new girl in town! Except next time, I think I'll stick to good 'ol apple.
