Prairie Pie Why did we stop Making You

alt

 

My grandmother can tell you what Flapper Pie is as can my mother but until last night I had never heard nor tasted this delicacy. If you ask them they used to make it all the time as a sweet treat when times were tough and i guess that's what they associate it with now cause it certainly isn't something I was ever privileged enough to get as a child and my grandmother does not speak of it with fondness. Tasting it makes you wanna say where have you been all my life and my kids certainly were happy i found the recipe hidden away in the old recipe box. Velvety smooth custard over a graham crumb crust topped with whipped cream, mmmmm truly decadent and very inexpensive. Easy on the time line as well, less than ten minutes and your diving in. It may have skipped a generation but this pie that is very much so a prairie throw back hopefully will make a strong return with a new generation of sweet teeth.

Where did Spring Go?

 

I can remember my mother dreading march and April. My siblings and I ,all five of us, coming home after school with many reasons why we had to walk through the deepest part of the puddle and it's not our fault we have full boots. This year and most in recent memory have not afforded us the weather for such puddles. It seems we wait and wait for the weather to warm up then when it does it warms up so fast the puddles leave before their depths can truly be discovered. I know that with my kids i have yet to use the prepared plastic bread bag to insulate the soaked interiors of their boots. It really makes me sad to see them missing out on all the wonderful stuff I experienced in my childhood and it scares me to see just how much not only has the landscapes changed near my home but the weather as well. I'm sure though that every generation believes their childhood was the best(mine really was though) guess I'll just have to chalk another one up to getting older.
