Speaking of Pecans...



(This is a redo for those who saw the test blog, some previously viewed content you have been warned..)

In preparing for the upcoming holiday baking seasons many people thoughts turn to pecans and subsequently for FJite bakers...pecan theives.  Because let's face it, when we see the price of those spendy little nuts one understands the temptation to glean...

First we must outfit ourselves with the proper perspective to tackle this controversial topic


Get it?  Outfit...because it's clothing.  I know...but my grandpa would have found that funny!

Because both pecans and pecan thieves are controversial...do you think when they started their journey..


They knew it would lead to a life of crime?  


And do we even know if they were gleaning them for their own consumption?  Or perhaps as a kindness for those who crave pecans, but live without the opposable thumbs needed to get at them...


They could have been on a mission to make sure no pecan craving cat was left behind...

Despite the general recklessness and disregard for law and order which TFDW has clearly shown I think he sees himself as a leader.  An inspiration to all who know him, motivating others on to bigger and better things...


Although, Smugger knows him so maybe some people are immune to his type of motivational speeches.

And since I created this blog to teach, did you know there is an actual fight abrewing between Brunswick, Missouri and Seguin, Texas over the title "Home of the World's Largest Pecan"...


I know it sounds like I made that up...but I can prove I didn't.  It's on the internet http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/06/bad_postcard_of_the_week_misso.html  Above is in Missouri...

I'm on Team Texas even without bothering to learn the measurement stats since they have the better sign ...


You can't go cheap when the stakes are this high...branding is everything.

My mom made a crazy good pecan pie, which I've never been able to replicate.  I don't like pecan pie so this fits in with my family's theory that I don't try as hard on recipes for food I don't eat...but I don't eat chocolate eclairs and I kick ass at those so their theory holds no water.  I did try...



Fortunately I've watched enough Charmed to have a vanquishing spell at hand.  We're safe now.

I may give it another shot again this year...only for two family members who would really like one that is more chew-able than home plate...(Do no use the hidden picture to dox my family...honor system in the blogs)


I've got to pick up smaller silverware for them before the holidays...it's just gross trying to watch them eat with those things.

And to segue it back to fundies...I bet plenty of fundy families will be turning out homemade pecan pie this year, even if they have to purchase their ingredients legally.  


See the two upfront without head coverings?  They look like trouble...probably going to get sent to the Prayer Closet with no pie.

I have two pecan trees in my yard, and my MIL sends me some of hers. I think that's her way of asking for chocolate chip cookies. :pb_lol:

I found the cartoon with this quote very inspiring:

Am I a pecan or a pecan't?

Because of food sensitivities, it's been many years since I've eaten nuts of any type, so naturally I have become obsessed with them. I adore the story of TFDW and the nutty attempt of gleaning by him and his naive little wifey.

In terms of eating, I'm a pecan't, but in terms of approach to life, I'm all about pecan! Thanks for the entertainment, Buffy!

      Am I the only one who found it strange that when the ‘Bowers Girls’ are mentioned by Hayley Lina isn’t in the photos. I think Hayley mentioned Lina in relation to how her and Carver first interaction with Cass. I can understand if Lina didn’t want to be photographed but it does seem a little like she’s ignoring her by praising the others. IMG_0179.thumb.jpeg.2bd1581e92ea5b491ace4e7a73da8265.jpeg

      I agree. I also think it's weird she's deciding who the "Bower girls" are, but then I hate the gender politics around last names anyway.

      Was it known that Hannah was having a 2nd? I know social media is private, but it seems like stuff still comes out despite that.

      Wasn't she seen pregnant at Nurie's tea party? I am pretty sure she was seen somehow.

      Yet another trip. She’s just like Jill Rod in this way. She never wants to be home with her kids.

      Thank you for moving this. Kelly, like Karissa Collins, is one who I’ve resisted following, even though some of the Facebook groups talk about her endlessly. But the horrifying birth story, followed by the over-the-top fable accompanied by carefully composed pictures of Kelly looking spiritual (seriously, where does she find the time? She has a new baby and two small kids!), sucked me in. She is weird in a completely different flavor than others we follow.

      One of her posts has a link to the retreat. Among agenda items - “time with baby Theresa” and the ability to try on and purchase prairie dresses made by Kelly. Does she really have followers who will go for this, or is it just going to be her and her besties admiring each other? 

      She is selling time with her baby? What the hell?
