Bribery

A few weeks ago we found out that our friend Gina and her dad were going to open a law office together RIGHT by our office! This was of course exciting because we love them but even more exciting because the house they purchased as their office has A POOL!!!! I have been day dreaming of eating lunch by the pool and enjoying a nice fruity drink poolside after work UNTIL Gina told me that her dad hates pools and wanted to fill it in for parking. What kind of a silly idea is that???? Well I have launched a full assault and am trying my hardest to convince him to keep the pool. Today's form of bribery included a homemade pecan pie, a la Southern Living. I wish I could say it turned out yummy but I didn't dare take a bite since this pie had its own purpose.

Southern Living's Mama's Pecan Pie
1 pie crust, floured and pressed into pie pan
3 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecan halves

Mix eggs and next 5 ingredients in a bowl until well blended.

Stir in pecans


 and pour into pie crust.


Bake at 350 for 55 minutes or until set.
