The one where my cold

has finally starting packing up and leaving.  The weekend was rough, but I did go to the doctor on Friday and got antibiotics and cough medicine, I feel much, much better.

I did manage to make a big pot of from scratch spaghetti sauce so even though I was puny, neither Mr. Iknead or I went hungry.  Honestly, I think we could eat just out of our pantry for a few weeks if we ever needed to.  Chances are we wouldn’t always be eating what we wanted to eat, but going hungry is not something we need to be concerned about.  Every week I tell myself that I’m going get the pantry back in order, but every week, something much more fun comes along and that project is abandoned without a backward glance.

I found a picture today of what Mr. Iknead swears is the best pecan pie ever, so I decided to share it

1 unbaked pie crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
