Time To Share & Win!
This week Ann has challenged us to recall a time when we brought something to a Pot Luck only to see that no one was eating it. She’s going to be recruiting her May Day guests to read our post and select the winners. What can you win? A cool packet of flower seeds to help celebrate this May Day – very cool!
I’ve told this story before, but it bears repeating only to embarrass myself further…(grin!) I was delegated to bring Pumpkin Pie to our family Thanksgiving Dinner one year. I planned to make it the night before so it would be ultra fresh for the dinner. The day before Thanksgiving I came down with a doozy of a sinus infection – I worked all day and was miserable, wishing I could go home and hide under the covers. When I got home from work, I remembered I was supposed to make the Pumpkin Pie – I figured since it’s an easy recipe, I’d whip one up then get to bed. I quickly put it together and spaced out in front of the TV while the pie baked – since my sinuses were all stuffed up, I couldn’t smell anything and had no idea anything was amiss.
The next day I arrived at our family Thanksgiving Dinner still worse for wear but not wanting to miss out on the festivities. When it came time to dig in to the Pumpkin Pie, those who chose that over apple pie took one bite…and promptly set their pie aside, uneaten. I couldn’t figure out what the problem was until I took a bite – it was horrendous! It wasn’t until I got home that night that I realized what the problem was…instead of measuring the spices that go into the pie with a teaspoon, I had accidentally measured with a tablespoon…talk about overkill on the spices! It was years before my dad was willing to attempt to eat any of my pies – pumpkin or otherwise – after that fiasco.
Oh, and JAM? My pick for the concert is Brad Paisley… 😉
