The first recipe is for Pineapple Chiffon Pie. I do not claim to be any kind of pie-maker by any stretch of the imagination. But simply put, we do not have Thanksgiving without two of these pies on the dessert table. (Why two? Because one is not enough!)
My whole family loves this pie.
My extended family loves this pie.
And as most great recipes and foods go
there are great memories
behind this pie.
The recipe comes to me from my best friend's grandmother.
My best friend while growing up, lived across the street from me.
I have little doubt that there was
probably a rut
in the asphalt
that separated our houses.
What was equally as wonderful
was that my best friend's
lived next door to my best friend...
therefore making it across
from me as well!
Her grandmother cooked a hot meal
And if I was hanging out with
my best friend,
then I got to eat at Ruby's as well.
I spent many, many a noon meal
in Ruby's kitchen.
And she was one of the World's Greatest Cooks!
