Having tweeted this earlier today:
[@redwhiteandgrew] is making a lemon chess pie (my ma’s recipe), watching a butterfly indulge himself in the bluebonnets #hillcountry
I got this note from the nice folks at Pillsbury (@Love_the_Pie):
@redwhiteandgrew Yum! What a great afternoon. We’d love to see a photo of your Lemon Chess Pie!
So, in order of Pi Day (yeah, I’m a day late) and because I did in fact use a refrigerated crust this go ’round, I’m sharing a photo:
The bluebonnets are homegrown. The little bottle? A salvaged glass vanilla extract container. (Sorry, but I’m not into butterfly wrangling.)
Bonus shot of savory cheese grits, which I’ve been chatting about over on Facebook with a few RW&G fans:
Bon appetite, y’all!
