I decided to make a non fruit pie for our dessert this weekend. We both love coconut custard so that was it. I topped it with meringue – I just love meringue. We figured the whole pie cost $2.40. When I was a kid my mom would buy frozen custard pies that we thawed and ate. She would get them on sale 3/$1. The flavors I remember were chocolate, strawberry, something green and coconut. Last week in the store I saw a frozen chocolate custard pie for $7.50. One pie.
I still reel from grocery store prices. I picked up grated parmesean cheese (yes, in the green shaker) today. We have good parmesean that we can grate in the refrigerator but I like the green bottled stuff on salads. It was $5 for a big green cannister. Wow.
We’re having a lovely day today. Eric isn’t feeling 100% so it is a good day to be at home. I love making something special for our week end meals. Even Bear came over today and napped with us.
