ok, so i'm not betty crocker . . . but i do love to make pies . . . the French Canadian Sugar Cream pies displayed above (baked today) are ones that i have been making for 31 years, from a recipe that is well over a 100 years old . . . and despite leo feeling yucky - there are some traditions that need to be done to make Christmas HAPPEN . . . the pies are it for our household . . . leo stirs the mixture for me while i get the dough ready . . . the whole house smells wonderful . . .
despite the -37C temps (it is supposed to warm up to -7C for Christmas), our wonderful neighbours brought more firewood . . . and despite the chronic health problems in our household, 95% of the days we feel like our cup is overflowing . . . the Lord ALWAYS gives us the strength needed for the day . . . we may ask for more prayer on the extra bad days - but that just helps to keep us humble . . .
well the kitchen is only half cleaned up, so i best "get tuit". . . wishing you a day full of sugar cream pies . . .
