So this weekend we went to visit the inlaws. We took Bella so they could visit with the grad dog. I think she had the most fun of everyone on the trip. The first day there we took her to the Jackson pool for her first swim ever.
I would have never been able to get in that super cold water! She seemed to enjoy fetching the tennis ball and she splashed around working in her doggie paddle. I am glad she didn’t drown cause I wasn’t going in after her. Bella also spent some time on the big plot of land her daddy’s papa has walking with him.
To make the weekend more awesome we went to a mardi gra parade my niece was in and went to fair hope to do a little eating and shopping in the eastern shore. It was so warm and nice I wish it was still that warm!!!!’
Oh I can’t forget to show you my pie I am proud. This is an old fashion chocolate pie
Here is the recipe if u want it:
4 tablespoons of cocoa or 1 1/2 squares of baking chocolate
3/4 cups of sugar
5 tablespoons of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 egg yolks, beaten slightly
1 tablespoon of butter
2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons of sugar
Your favorite pie crust
Mix your sugar, flour, salt, cocoa, eggs and milk (all except vanilla and butter) with a whisk.
Cook while stirring on medium until it bubbles and thickens, about five to 10 minutes. If it becomes lumpy, just beat out the lumps. (It will not get any thicker in the oven so cook until it’s as thick as you want it.)
Remove from heat and stir in your vanilla and butter. Meanwhile, poke holes in your pie crust with a fork and bake it at 350 until it’s brown, about 20 minutes.
Beat your egg whites with salt and when they start to get fluffy add the sugar. Pour the chocolate custard into the baked pie shell and top with the beaten egg whites. Bake it until it the peaks on the meringue are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Grandma says: “It’s real good hot, wonderful cold and you can even eat it frozen—then it’s like a popsicle!”
Note: All that’s happening in the oven is the browning of the meringue. So be sure and keep cooking the custard in the pan until it’s your desired consistency.
FYI if u r like me and throw all the sugar in the meringue at one time it will take a very long time for the meringue to peak so don’t worry you didn’t mess it up.
So today I am back at the grind at clinic and tomorrow at work! Getting to do some procedures today so it is a great day. I hope my work day goes well tomorrow, but who knows that’s life of nurse
