Father's Day

Hope everyone had a lovely Father's Day. On Friday, I took my Dad to the doctor and then M met us for a movie and dinner. We saw The Happening. It was interesting, but not great. Then we went to Lucille's for some gooood BBQ.

Sunday we spent with M's family. I volunteered to cook dinner for the family. M's parents have been very busy with some family things, so I thought I would help out. we had carne asada, polla asada, rice, beans, Sagaponack Corn pudding, corn salsa, guacamole and a pecan pie. We had so much food it was ridiculous! It was goooooood. The only picture I got was of the pecan pie. I didn't make the crust, but the filling was from here. It was ridiculously easy. Seriously.

2 Eggs, Slightly Beaten
1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1-1/4 Cups Broken Texas native pecans
Preheat oven to 375 deg F.
Spread pecans in an unbaked 9-inch pie shell.
Mix remaining ingredients and pour over pecans.
Bake at 375 deg F. for 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is set.

**Sorry for the bad pictures, I had to take them quickly.

The pie pictures are all well and fine, but we all want to know: Is Mike eating vegetables?

For the most part, he is. I just got some home grown zuchinni from a friend and I am going to make a zuchinni gratin. Mmmmmmm! I bet he will love it!
