Tis the season....for insanity, procrastination, running around like a chicken with your head cut off....yanno, all the fun stuff =) But life has been good here =) Binty is still enjoying dating Aa, I've gotten to catch up with good friends (love my UAB ladies!!), and Patthecat is in transit from KSA as we speak to arrive this evening! wooohooo can't wait to see him =) The whole fam-dam-ly will be back together.
Okay, well seriously, it is also the season for family and cooking. With the Thanksgiving holiday on the horizon, I opted to do a less than truly "random" roulette today. One of my cookbooks is 75 Years of Good Cookin' compiled by the Clearfield Hall Auxiliary. My mom's mom, Nana (nee Steele), grew up in Clearfield, South Dakota and this cookbook has recipes from her friends and family and people she grew up around. So the personal connection for me is very special. It also has old photos in it from like the 1940s and it is so cool to see my great-aunts as little girls =)
As Thanksgiving is a foodie holiday, as well as a very popular PIE holiday, I thought I would share a Steele family recipe.
Sour Cream Raisin Pie
3/4 cup raisins
4 eggs separated
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cloves
Cook raisins until tender and drain. Beat egg yolks and sugar together. Add sour cream and raisins; cook until thick. Put into a baked crust and top with meringue.
