The Deep Thoughts of BlaineUSA: Fazer Pie

The Deep Thoughts of BlaineUSA: Fazer Pie
I'm told it's like Marie Calender's Chocolate Satin Pie

The link above is for an older post with one of my favorite pie recipes.  Thanks to the comment by Ann Garrett (Thanks, Ann), I realized that just before Thanksgiving is a great time to consider a great new pie recipe. Enjoy.

Oh, and one other thing Thanksgiving related:  The BlaineUSA family has decided to take a page out of Uncle Larry's book of great traditions.  We're starting our own pie night.  The Monday night before Thanksgiving, BlaineUSA and family are having a special shared Family Home Evening for anyone interested in coming.  In the annals of the BlaineUSA family history, it will be called: Pie Night.

A quick history and description of "pie night" (as described to me by Uncle Larry)-- What a shame it is to get to the end of your Thanksgiving feast and find there is little to no room in your stuffed belly for the most anticipated part of the feast:  the pie (and/or other fantastic dessert).  Solution:  Pie Night.  The Monday BEFORE Thanksgiving, get together with friends and family, bring all your favorite Thanksgiving desserts, and ENJOY them--as opposed to the "forcing them into your already stuffed gullet" that too often occurs after the Thanksgiving feast.

Therefore, in the interest of giving us all an opportunity to truly enjoy our desserts:  All friends and family are cordially invited to our residence for the first annual BlaineUSA Family Pie Night.  Certainly not intending to compete with Uncle Larry's night--don't ditch his party for ours if your friends or family of us both.  Larry needs as many friends as possible. -ha!  j/k!  ;)

But seriously, Mon. Nov. 22, starting at 6:30-ish, bring a pie (or other desert), and come on over for the pre-Thanksgiving enjoyment of friends, family, and pies!

Pie is my favorite all time dessert; I really think it'd almost be worth the drive. I sure like the idea of a new family tradition including pie.

Wish I could come, but Mondays are pretty crazy around here! But you could always save me a slice.

Sounds good, Blaine. I wish it'd be possible for US to join you Monday night. It sounds like it'll be fun. I especially like the way that you said people who come can bring whatever dessert they want to....That'll give more variety than just Pie. (But of course, Pie sounds fine to me!)
Your Dad and I just got back tonight from a quick little whirl-wind trip to Boise to visit Brian and Kamber and see that darling little baby Natalie again. With them having plans of moving to LONDON in January, we need to get in every single opportunity of getting to know that baby girl better, 'cause it's going to be lots of months before we see her and all of them after they once move. Anyway--we sincerely hope your Pie Night is a success. Love, Mom
