I'm blog slow...
So, I just realized today that I have comments on my first blog! That is awesome! Thanks for checking it out!
Let's see, so, I love to cook and I also belong to a food co-op called Bountiful Baskets
Last week I had an abundance of these mini mangoes and pineapple. I love both, but am not too comfortable working with them. They are both difficult to work with and aside from mango salsa...I'm not really versed on the way of the mango! So, I went to 'old faithful' -- Allrecipes.com-- and found a recipe for a Pineapple Mango pie. Now, I am a pie lover...so much so that when my husband and I were looking for a little piece of land to call our own, we bought it in Pie Town, NM (no lie!). It wasn't just the name that sold me, it is gorgeous and isolated out there, I love it.
So, I tried the Pineapple Mango Pie and (another side note, cutting pineapple is NOT my forte, it's never pretty, but always tastes good and that's what matters)followed the recipe to a 't', which is new for me, I'm typically a recipe adjuster/corrector/add-er/changer. I tried it last night and although it wasn't bad, it was a little too tart for my taste. Ugh....tonight I'll try it on the kids (they went bowling with Daddy last night so I could have some quiet time!) and hopefully they will like it.
I need to remember to take pictures of things for my blogs...I love to see the pictures of what's going on when I read other blogs.
Have a fantastic day.
