The Dish Set Challenge II: Pecan Pie Party

This morning we filled our bowls with fruit and attempted to drink tea but that never goes well. The tea is hot, the cups do not have a handle and then once you can hold the cup the tea is cold. It is making for a very frusterated husband who needs his morning tea….
Lunch proved to be a success with our farmers market salad served with all local fruit, veggies, and homemade goat cheese. Topped with a simple homemade dressing with local pecan oil from Ingelwood Farm
 I made a dinner of leftovers with Forrest's garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, and mushroom rice. Simple and nice.
This evening we hosted a Pecan Pie Party. I baked two pecan pies with local cane syrup instead of corn or rice syrup that I might use in the north. I was happy with the results the pie seemed very similar to what I made in the past maybe just a little sweeter. I used a mix of local cane syrup from the farmers market and a more common brand we picked up from a different market. If you don't live in the south where cane syrup is abundant you might be able to locate a bottle of Steen's 100% Pure Cane Syrup. We invited over friends served the pie, some spiced cider, had lots of laughs and a good time!
And we really do not have many chairs so almost everyone joined us in sitting on the floor, we are not sure if they enjoyed that but they did like the pie!
