Birthday pie

Matt's birthday is tomorrow. The menu includes jambalaya and pecan pie - two favorites. It seemed prudent to make the pie tonight (which kind of blew the surprise), so it's baking in the oven at the moment. It takes an hour or so to cook and two hours to cool and set, and since it went in at about 9:00 it should be ready to eat just after midnight. Fair game, birthday-wise.

I suspect by dinnertime tomorrow it will be at least a quarter gone, but I'm hoping there's enough left to support two candles - one in the shape of a 4 and the other in the shape of a 0.

Happy birthday, honey. The whipped cream is in the fridge.

Sounds like quite a birthday treat! Hope there's still some pie left to mark the day, which I hope was great, too!

Hope he had a great b-day, and saved a bit of the pie for the candles!

No candles were harmed - the pie was half gone by dinnertime. Matt had three helpings of jambalaya and ended up too stuffed for dessert, so I stepped up. Still. The intent was there :)

The candles may come into play next October.
