Well, it is not all snow on the ground.
There are three layers of "stuff" out there.
So what is a homemaker to do when the weather has one locked in the house? Cook, cook, and cook! Of course, that means lots of dishes to do also. Thankfully I have a dish washer...no, not Leon...but a built in kind with a motor...you know what I mean.
We won't discuss what I cooked for meals - all I can say lots of comfort food. Not ones with sugar but good tasting anyway.
My dear sweet husband has been asking for a chocolate pie for ages...I have been dragging my feet I suppose. I believe pies of this nature are a three step process. First the crust, then the filling, and finally the meringue. Takes so long...and I suppose they are not my favorite pies to begin with. Give me a peach cobbler or apple pie anytime and you see see a very contented blonde.
With the thought in mind of making it today... yesterday I got the pie crust out of the deep freeze to thaw. Yes, I do make my own crust and it is flaky and absolutely the best tasting...even if I do say so myself.Because of Leon's diabetes and my ever growing waist/hip measurement I used a sugar substitute in both the pie and the meringue. Not as good as the real stuff - but certainly not bad either. You can bet your last dollar (if you are a betting person) all of it will be eaten.
