I think I’ll make the coucous salad I made for Passover this year- it was a big hit!
I’ve marked my calendar for the 26th of May and sent in my request for a visa to Wisconsin. I should know in about six to eight weeks if I’ve been approved for travel.
Pie Diva pulled a Jerry Glanville with that Elvis Pie. Unfortunately, he never arrived.
I was blown away by all the pies but two deserve a special shout-out. The Elvis pie was a banana peanut butter chiffon pie. A heavy touch with the peanut butter and it would have been unpleasant. This was perfect and the candied bacon crumbles as a topping made this pie very memorable. The other was a lemon pie and if I’m not mistaken, a lemon curd panna cotta. WOW! Intense fresh lemon flavors had this pie exploding with flavor.
Knowing your love of Sour Cream Raisin Pie, Bobbi & I thought you would like the pie she labeled Norske Nook Blueberry Pie. I previously noted:
“Interesting thing about the pie list, you cannot get this Norske Nook Blueberry Pie at the Norske Nook.
“Bobbi took the Norske Nook Raisin Pie recipe and is substituting dried blueberries for the raisins. It will be a Sour Cream Dried-Blueberry Pie. I just tasted the filling and it is fantastic, the sour cream has a blueberry flavor to it.”
The dried blueberries rehydrated during preparation and are soft to the bite. Not a pie you will find anywhere else, but if you like blueberries and you like sour cream pies, it is an absolute knock-out. In fact, I believe I’ll enjoy a slice with my dinner tonight.
What a surprise. Wisconsinites actually know how to cook brats. [}:)]
Reused up to 12 times, this could really be a cost savings. Just got to get the guys to share.
Nuthin’ wrong with being curmudgeonly. Hell, I strive to be a curmudgeon; just ask my wife and kids. The trick is to still be nice while you’re curmudgeonizing folks.
What the heck is a Baltimore Bomb Pie?
I-71 from Columbus to Cincinnati, then I-74 to Indianapolis will accomplish the same goal. And there’s Graeter’s.
And yeah, there’s Graeter’s in Dayton and Columbus (they even sell pints at the Heinen’s grocery chain in Cleveland), but it’s not Cincinnati Graeter’s, which everyone will tell you tastes better than Dayton or Columbus Graeter’s.
Or you could just get some at http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&revid=928874110&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1440&bih=780&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=fresh+farms+wheeling+il&fb=1&gl=us&hq=fresh+farms+wheeling+il&hnear=fresh+farms+wheeling+il&cid=12998617192928828394 Fresh Farms at Dundee & Milwaukee and get a couple pints there.
And then drop it in the trash before you buy frozen custard at Kopp’s.
Very true….might depend on what the flavors are, though.
With the economy where it is, I am looking for creative ways to control costs at the party this year. I don’t want the food to suffer, so may skip renting the Port-o-let. While many of my guests are already here, I may provide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf94Y8Tk1Bg&feature=player_embedded this dependable option for everyone.
What about a http://www.stadiumpal.com Stadium Pal, as http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/3d6ae25c3c/david-sedaris-on-letterman-from-davidlettermanfan recommended by David Sedaris?
Mr. Hoffman (or whoever is posting here), we are not that far from Ohio. I’m sure that at least one-half of your split personality would be well received at the Pie Fest event.
I spent 3 hours at the Target open interviews. I had 5 interviews………….by the way-got Hired! Those that know me know I have issues……..sorry we missed the smoke day. But am able to say I was hired-regardless of my past….they kinda like me!!!!!!!!
Well, his rookie year was 1982 so you do the math.
Thanks, but they came out a little soft for my liking.
So I’ll be in Pewaukee on Saturday, Iowa City on Sunday, and Oregon, Illinois, on Monday.
Time to buy stock in Cooper Tire, folks.
You always deserve pie!
Happy Smoke Day to all. I hope you enjoy the brats from Bucyrus, MH is going to make some for me for supper tonight. Yum! [:p]
