He Never Called Back Pie
I've never participated in Pi Day festivities before, but it was social pressure to cook something delicious so of course my pride made me participate. Unfortunately, my pride forgot to go shopping on Saturday so there we were, Sunday afternoon, staring at a frozen pâte brisée with looks of consternation on our faces.
"I have all of the ingredients we would need for a pecan pie except for the pecans," I told Hui Lian.
"Well, we'll just add something else," she suggested.
"What are our assets?"
"I have oatmeal and apples."
I fished out my famous family pecan pie recipe and got to work.
