[FHCx233] National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day/National Lemonade Day

Sweet tooth, ho!


SPAK aren’t particularly fond of sugary drinks. We’d much prefer to eat our calories. So we thought we would pay tribute to lemonade day by how we are most frequently exposed to it:

That’s right. When you go for water at most fountains, it’s right under the lemonade. But since they share a spout, you have to kind of rinse out the tube before you start filling your water, or you get hilariously sugary lemony water. Not the most terrible, but not the most pleasant.

Chocolate Pecan Pie. If you made a list of foods that are so rich, they shouldn’t possibly be made richer, pecan pie would be somewhere in that list. Of course, you could always add chocolate to something and make it richer. But people were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.

And since on chocolate pecan pie day we did not have the original homemade pecan pie of SPom’s family, she made us this wonderfully rich recipe from the New York Times.

It’s difficult to say how we feel about this one. It’s sweet and chocolatey, which is great, but when we want pecan pie, we want pecan pie. And this isn’t really the classic. So we’ll wait for Thanksgiving for SPom’s regular pecan pie and have this as a holdover in the meantime!

Tomorrow is National Spumoni Day!
