Do you ever have days

on which you want to be covered from head to toe? No skin showing at all?

I think it's my way of staying in bed. While going to work.

Hopefully it's not too hot today.

Would you rather have your president be fat or your lawyer be a terrible speller?

Recipe: Soda Cracker Pie

Adapted from the recipe by Grandma George, heaven bless her.
In a cold bowl
  • beat 3 egg whites until stiff
  • then add 1 cup sugar
  • then add the crumbs of 14 saltines (which you've procured from finely crushing 14 saltines in a ziploc bag)
  • then add 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • then add 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • and finally, add 1 tsp vanilla.
Fill buttered 9" pie pan with pie goop. Push the goop up on the sides.

Bake 30 minutes at 325 degrees, until it looks solid (not goopy) and golden brown. It will be puffy.

Remove it from the oven. It will fall.

Cool it. Slice fresh peaches or nectarines thin. Fill pie crust SO FULL. Add whipped cream (or even Cool Whip) to your liking.

Eat it before anyone else does.
