I'm doing Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday today... I really enjoy doing them, but these last couple of weeks have been hard! Preparing for the holidays has taken it's toll on me, but I really wanted to share my "Family" photo... it was too cute to keep to myself!
|My two-and-a-half year old insisted on feeding her cousin lunch "all by herself". We were celebrating cousin's First Birthday that day!|
|This one is obviously from my archives (the shorts are a good hint)! Really, the only motion blur picture that I have.|
|Santa has just made his stop...|
|This is the beginning of an old family recipe, White Christmas Pie. The ingredients just seemed all, um, glow-y and sparkle-y? You see sugar, flour, unflavored gelatin, and salt. Maybe one day I'll share the recipe.|
(If you can keep a secret!)
And now I feel like a complete dork... looking around the other participants, I realize that Glow and Sparkle were supposed to be two different words. Silly me, and I wondered why we only had four words this week. Oh well, this is all for fun anyway, right? Speaking of other participants, be sure to click the "Addicted to Ramblings and Photos" button above to see everyone else's interpretations.
While I was searching in my archives for the motion blur, I found this cool shadow shot that I took this summer. That means I'm participating in Shadow Shot Sunday today!
|A very grainy photo, indeed. I caught the duck as he was making his landing at Country Park, beside Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.|
1 cup moist shredded coconut
Blend sugar, flour, gelatin, and salt thoroughly in saucepan. (That would be the photo you see above for Glow and Sparkle). Gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Boil one minute.
While the mixture is cooling, make the meringue. (Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and sugar with a mixer on high until the mixture is stiff and peaks.)
Gently fold in whipped cream. Fold in coconut. Pile into cooled baked pie shell. Sprinkle with moist shredded coconut. Chill several hours until set. Serve cold.
This year, I tried something a little different. I wanted to share the White Christmas Pie without making whole pies, so I tried bite size. I did a graham cracker crust in mini cupcakes papers. It tasted good, but was a little messy, because the crust doesn't hold it's shape. Mom and I agree that a Nilla Wafer at the bottom would be perfect for Mini White Christmas pies.
