Say Goodbye With Pie

January 8, 2011

Well, all good things must come to an end, and the time has come for us to leave the warmth and sun of Louisiana and head back up north to Pennsylvania.  It’s been 70 degrees and sunny here lately, and we’re headed back to a high of 21 degrees.  Ugh.

We headed over to my sister and her husband’s house tonight to say our goodbyes.  For dinner, we enjoyed pizza and salad, and earlier today, I baked a pie from my new (old) Good Housekeeping cookbook for us to take along as dessert. 

I’m not always crazy about the wacky, old-fashioned recipes you find in vintage cookbooks, but I will say, they’re usually spot-on when it comes to dessert. 

I kept it super simple and old-fashioned tonight, and made a Southern treat: buttermilk pie.

Even this delicious pie couldn’t make saying goodbye taste sweet.  😦

We’ll be on the road alllllllll morning, noon, and night tomorrow, so send us happy traveling vibes!

See you in PA!

    If it makes you feel any better, we’re supposed to have snow Sunday night/Monday morning so I suspect that means no 70 degrees for La…. Have a safe trip home!

    the buttermilk pie looks amazing!
    but when would butter, sugar, flour, and eggs and buttermilk not be delish? never!

    good luck on your travels home…stay warm girl!

    Can’t go wrong with buttermilk pie!

    Will be praying for a safe trip home!

    Sasha says to tell Elle and Baxter to enjoy the ride. (Shelby & Sis Sue never do, so their ears are down.)

    Note from a southern girl–my very favorite southern pie is lemon chess.

    Happy new year to you and Ryan and the pups!

    Safe travels! I’ve never heard of buttermilk pie, but it looks delicious! And I agree, if it’s from an old, tried and true cookbook…it’s bound to be fabulous!

    You left just in time – we got sleet/snow today and the forecast is for more during the week. We miss you and the dogs! And, the pie was DELICIOUS (wish you were still here to cook for me and Dad!)
