Speaking of Pecans...
HerNameIsBuffy posted a blog entry in Buffy's Commentary(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 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... 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... 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'm on Team Texas even without bothering to learn the measurement stats since they have the better sign ... 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... 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) 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.
