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.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them and they always make me smile!
