Nothing beats a good cheddar cheese with hot apple pie!

Apples and cheese go together like peanut butter and chocolate. :thumbs :thumbs

Hey, I just left for a minute this time, and when I come back, there's a whooooole bunch of posts, and I can't even remember what I've read! I'm gonna try to respond to at least a few. If I leave yours out, I promise I did read it.

Carole, if you had a Kindle, you could read my book. Actually, you can read it anyway. You can download a free Kindle app for your compute or other device from Amazon. If anyone is interested in reading it, next Saturday it will be free. Its called Faylene's Biggest Catch and is just a fun, light-hearted read about small town life in Texas and an over fifty woman who finds love. And that completes today's unpaid advertisement.

Don, I laughed out loud when I read your TAPS story. And my favorite Thanksgiving pie is pumpkin. I don't want whipped cream on it, just plain. I do love my mom's coconut cream pie. That's probably my favorite "any time" pie. My sisters, daughter and I have the recipe and we make it, but usually not at Thanksgiving. But man,is it ever good.

Edy, I love your beautiful spirit, but I gotta agree with Don. I' tried cheddar cheese with apple pie once. It just wasn't my thing, but then I like cayenne pepper in my chocolate pie - but just a taste. I don't want it to burn my mouth. :0)

Verna, nice to see your smiling face here today.

I'll have a piece of that apple pie with cheese, but that would be about third on the list. First would be my mom's chocolate cream pie. Second a gooey pecan pie.--no lutefisk, Edy!

Looking forward to your book, Betty!

Oh, Verna, you'll like Betty's book. It is the first and only book I've ever read online, via amazon, I think it was. It is sheer delight, great characters - which I love - and even suspense. And, who can beat a free opportunity!

Earlier, I replied to this topic regarding pie favorites. Somehow, it didn't post. So here's my best approximation of it:
Though I like pumpkin pie, I can get tired of it easily. At this time of year, apple or pecan would be preferred. But when I was growing up, my paternal grandma would visit occasionally, and she would make chocolate, or lemon, and occasionally lime meringue pies. We loved that! My maternal grandma usually made cherry pie, with canned filling if she couldn't get fresh. She also made Montgomery pies, as did mom. I've made Montgomery pie a few times; but the last time I made it, some of the filling spilled in the oven, and set off the smoke alarm. I had to turn on the AC and open windows while waving a dish cloth in front of the alarm to make it stop shrieking. I might point out that Montgomery pie is not for beginners to make. Basically, it's a sugar, lemon and water mixture with cake-like batter poured on top. You have to be careful on how much to put on top, or it'll run over. You don't want that happening!
I'm sure I posted the recipe here a few years ago, but if a search finds it gone, if anyone asks I'll post it again.

Even if it was force-spooned into the pried-open mouth of my lifeless dead body, I wouldn't again try/consume apple pie with cheese, or lutefisk.

You couldn't make me swallow the stuff. :lol:

Besides, two or three witnesses means absolutely nothing in this situation. So there!!!

deejay - I've never heard of Montgomery pie, but it sounds interesting. Lime meringue pie is good - I make that sometimes.

Speaking of smoke alarms, how many of you love the unique flavor of burnt toast? I'm not just talking about something with a deeper shade of brown, but rather, it must be blackened at least a third of the way through on both sides. It's not done properly unless the smoke alarms start singing. The good old fashioned toasters with swing-down doors were perfect for making burnt toast.

Don't laugh - it's especially great with some honey or grape jelly spread on it, but that's not necessary to enjoy the delicious, full-bodied flavor of charred toast. Only a few people have discovered this delicacy. It has unpublished medicinal value too.

More about food...
Very few people know how to cook bacon. Even restaurants don't know. If you ask for crisp bacon, how do you get it? It is served as limp as a wet dish rag. I don't want a hunk of rubbery bacon to gnaw on. It's cooked to perfection when the bacon can be easily broken/snapped in half. It must be crunchy.

I've had the biggest kick out of my dear Verna's next to the last posting. She was talking about Thanksgiving dinner and going to some of her family's for dinner. Then she said, " I've already baked my share! and made the frozen fruit salad--just have to add the lima beans!" Omigoodness, that's the cutest thing! Lima beans in frozen fruit salad. Yummmmy! ((((Verna))))

My favorite pie is sweet potato pie. It's a huge hit in the South and I like it as good as or better than pumpkin. Plop a mound of real whipped cream on top and you've reached pie heaven! The best I ever had was at a restaurant in Kernersville, NC but they carefully guarded the recipe. Then my friend, Doris, went to work for them and one day called to say she had the recipe! She gave me a copy and its such a treasure! It makes 3 pies and I guess I could halve it, but how would I cook half a pie? :lol:

In some ways Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year. Christmas is so busy, so full of wrapping paper, kids' toys, so much food, so much running around for last minute shopping. But at Thanksgiving, all we need to do is gather together to ask the Lord's blessing.

Turn up your volume and enjoy

Mariane, I thought the same thing you did when I read Verna's post. LOL! I like sweet potato pie, too. I have several HUGE butternut squash I grew this year. I saw a recipe for butternut squash pie, so I might try that.

deejay, I've never heard of Montgomery Pie, but I did Google it. Sounds good!

And hey, Don, I did agree with you. No apple pie and cheese, at least not together. I also agree with you about the crisp bacon.

Edy, thanks for the vote of confidence regarding my book. It was fun to write. It's actually the first in a trilogy. I am working on the second book now. It's a little more difficult trying to keep some of the same characters fresh and interesting, but I like a challenge.

Count me in on the apple pie with cheese. Remember this?

APPLE PIE WITHOUT SOME CHEESE
IS LIKE A KISS WITHOUT A SQUEEZE


Somehow I missed out on Betty's book. I've never read a book online. Maybe I can figure out how or ask for help. I need to know the name of it, too, Betty.

And speaking of books, don't forget Verna's two books on your Christmas giving list. They're not only good reading but the covers are so attractive that guests will immediately pick them up from your coffee table to browse through. You can brag that you know the author!

Don, did the pictures of that big tree carving give you a hankerin' to start carving again? It's amazing to me the skills some people have!

Betty, my sister who was a missionary in Africa for most of her adult life, told me they couldn't get pumpkins in Africa so she regularly made butternut squash pie and no one could tell the difference.

Night all !

"Sunday Funnies" - from my email inbox, just now:

I dialed a number and got the following recording: "I am not available

right now, but thank you for caring enough to call. I am making some
changes in my life. Please leave a message after the beep. If I do not
return your call, you are one of the changes."
~~~~~
At pilots’ training back in the Air Corps, they taught us, "Always try to
keep the number of landings you make equal to the number of take offs you
make."
~~~~~
Little Tommy had been to a birthday party at a friend's house.
Knowing his sweet tooth, Tommy's mother looked straight into his eyes
and said, "I hope you didn't ask for a second piece of cake."

"No, but I asked Mrs. Smith for the recipe so you could make some like it,
and she gave me two more pieces without asking."
~~~~~
My wife and I had words, but I didn't get to use mine.
~~~~~
As my five year old son and I were headed to McDonald's one day, we passed
a car accident. Usually when we see something terrible like that, we say a
prayer for those who might be hurt, so I pointed and said to my son, "We
should pray."

From the back seat I heard his earnest request: "Please, God, don't let
those cars block the entrance to McDonald's."
~~~~~
Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses.
~~~~~
Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without
forgetting.
~~~~~
The irony of life is that, by the time you're old enough to know your way
around, you're not going anywhere.
~~~~~
God made man before woman so as to give him time to think of an answer for
her first question.
~~~~~
I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to
find one.
________________

A man appeared before St. Peter at the pearly gates. "Have you ever done
anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asked.

"Well, I can think of one thing," the man offered. "On a trip to the Black
Hills in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of high-testosterone bikers, who
were threatening a young woman.
I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. "So, I
approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker and smacked him on
the head, kicked his bike over, and ripped out his nose ring, and threw it
on the ground." I yelled, "Now back off!! Or you'll answer to me!"

St. Peter was impressed: "When did this happen?"

"Just a couple minutes ago."


Did I ever confess to my Porch friends, that when I was quite a little girl, I once wished my family was of the heathen persuasion. That way we wouldn't have to get up on Sunday morning to get ready for church, no matter what the weather outside. We could just lie in bed and read the funny papers. :oops: :mrgreen:

Oh, BeachGrandma, I'm sure you could sing just as well when you were a child, too! :lol: I know I tried. When we'd hear some lady singing opera on the radio, my dad would joke, "Somebody must be stepping on her sore toe!" And, I'd try to imitate the voice and make my dad laugh.

Seriously, though, this little girl cannot be ten years old, yet. Can you imagine how she'll sound by the time she reaches the Met?
