I love trying new things, so I tend to have experiences rather than ongoing hobbies. Maybe it’s a lack of focus or ADD (as I’ve been repeatedly told), but I love my long list of experiences.
One of the things I used to do was make pies for a market. When I told my mom I got the gig, she, who knows me all too well, said, “Good, honey! Get it out of your system.” Unflattering, but completely true . . .
I found a deal on disposable pie tins, so I bought 100 of them; Mom and my cousin laughed, knowing that I would lose interest before I’d used that many. They were right. It was gratifying to know that my creations were good enough for sale, but this was a very short-lived endeavor.
Nonetheless, I still make great pies. My family knows it and doesn’t care for my near-entire rejection of the kitchen over the last few years. I don’t know what it is, but only harvest season will have me doing anything like cooking.
My cousin has ordered me to make pies for dinner, though. I’m going to make one of my favorites, coconut cream, of course. I’m also trying a new one this year, Sour Cream Raisin pie. Doesn’t it look great?
What's on the Easter menu at your place?
