That Dreadful F Word Again
Why is it, when you are cooped up indoors, your mind is constantly on Food? I try not to bring in junk foods unless we are having company, then I use them as munchies for the guests, until the meal is ready or for snacking through the remainder of the day,if they linger.The only trouble is,when the company is gone, the munchies remain, sitting there,calling my name.And they never need to call my name more than once. Well, the munchies are all gone, so I tried to find something I could whip up that was just as fattening,since that seems to be the only kind of food that interests me when I'm in the munching mood.
I have been thinking of trying these pecan mini-pies for some time now.I didn't bother looking up a recipe(as usual). I just jumped in with both feet and tried my own variation. I had 2 rolls of ready made pie crust in the fridge, and since Pop was onto me to clear out some of the "stuff" in the fridge, I used that for an excuse to cook. I made the mini pecan pies.They turned out pretty good.Better than I had figured they would with no recipe. So my sweet tooth will be satisfied for one more day, and the doctor's scales will go crazy tomorrow when we go for our regular check ups.Do you have days when you want to eat everything in site?
