Two Small Things

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

I'm making pies again for a church in town that feeds the hungry on Thanksgiving, so besides the flavors I know I'll be making, I thought it might be nice to try something different this year. The November issue of Southern Living includes a recipe for "pecan cheesecake pie" which sounded really good, so I made it.

It is good, but Av and I agreed that a just-cheesecake or a just-pecan pie is better than this combination for some reason. The same thing happened when I made a Key Lime Praline pie earlier this year - the combination of flavors sounds really good, but it isn't better than either of the things that are being put together (although I know that doesn't sound right). Maybe it's just us!

The paperwhites that got started a little over a week ago are really growing (post here). I followed the directions from Cornell, and after a week, we added alcohol to the water - about half a shot-glass of gin - so that they wouldn't grow quite as tall. A few days later, and there is already a difference!

The one on the right got the added alcohol - it is already shorter than the one on the left that didn't get any!
