Forgive me. I couldn't think of a title.
I just finished reading a great book: The Scalpel and the Soul, by Allan Hamilton. Loved it.
I’ve had a hankering for some pecan pie the last week or so. I decided to make some Pecan Pie Bars this morning. That’s not something I usually make, so I just got this recipe off of allrecipes.com and cut it down to 24 servings instead of 36 and used a 9” x 13” pan. They have a handy little calculator doo-hickey on their site so you can do that easily. Since the egg quantity came out to 2-2/3 eggs, I just used 3. I got to use my Cuisinart Food Processor for the crust too…and as quick as a pulse, pulse, pulse, I had my butter perfectly cut into my flour. Nice.
I dilly-dallied around with some crochet yesterday but accomplished nothing. I frogged everything I tried. I didn’t frog the sea-colored ripple I started the day before though. I plan to keep working on that. I think I want to work on a doily or something like that this week instead of an afghan. Not sure exactly what yet. I plan to dilly-dally again today.
I’m watching the NASCAR race right now. They’re here this weekend, but we decided not to go. The Captain was scheduled to work all weekend anyway.
Oh, I got some Black Cohosh for my hot flashes. I’m only going to take it at night and see what happens. Will keep you updated on how I think it’s working.
Gonna run. See ya.
