in food news…
This pie was all his idea. He came up with the idea when I told him I needed to go to the store to buy tampons. He pretty much always takes advantage of “that time of the month” to exploit my sugar cravings and make elaborate desserts…or convince me to make them!
It was totally easier to make a pie dough than I had ever thought. All I had ever heard was how hard it was. It actually was the opposite and very satisfying to eat in the end when it tasted FRIGGIN amazing. I mean. A.maz(e).ing.
Here is the recipe he used for the crust that I had found on allrecipes:
PLEASE TRY THIS RECIPE! If you have never made a pie crust then you are in for a treat. It was totally flakey, totally buttery and melt in your mouth fab-u-lous. I can’t say enough about this recipe. Just keep the dough in the freezer until you use it and we used frozen butter and a food processor. (Ask in the comments if you need any help!)
So I have this little bible-study cocktail party tomorrow night, right? And being the slightly(lol) food obsessed person that I am deciding what to make has been an event. (I’m laughing as I’m writing this because it’s so absurdly true.)
Last night I looked at allrecipes.com which is my go-to recipe exchanging website and found a few that looked good to me. One of them I had the ingredients for in abundance and so today I tried it because I can’t very well make something to bring to a party that I have never tried, can I?
It was the mango-guacamole, recipe here:
I didn’t really follow the recipe because I don’t usually puree my guacamole and I didn’t have cilantro (even though I LOVE it and usually would def. add it to my guacamole). I just mashed up one avocado, 1/4 of a jalapeno, 1/2 a lime and 1/2 a mango~diced finely and stirred it up with a dash of salt.
So here are three questions for ya. What would you make for a cocktail party pot-luck whose theme is finger food? What is your guacamole recipe? What is the awesomest thing you have eaten recently and can I have the recipe?!
