My mom's chocolate pie is one of my FAVORITE deserts of all time. When I was still living at home mom taught me how to make it, I would have to say, I did a pretty good job on it. Then once I moved out and started living on my own, I always made it atleast once a year but something just seemed off. I think every time I made it, I would say something to Sam like, "Wow, it really is sweet. I really don't remember it being this sweet." So almost two years ago when my mom came up for Regan's birth, she asked me what I wanted for my birthday cake. I said chocolate pie. And she asked if I had the recipe handy and of course I did. She started reading it and all of sudden goes, "No, Kayce it doesn't have sweetened milk in it. It is supposed to be PET milk." So for over 10 years I had been making it with sweetened milk instead of evaporated milk. So in the Thanksgiving spirit, I am very thankful that my mom came up for a visit and finally figured out what was wrong with my chocolate pie! It taste so much better! And I think this year's chocolate pie was the best yet!!
Here are a couple of pictures of Grant and Regan wearing Grant's "Gobble Gobble" hat from school.
