In Loving Memory

Yesterday I was wanting to make Cowboy a pie. I learned from the best of the best! My Beloved Grandmother, "BUBA." Now she knew how to make pies!!! I used to make pretty good pies myself, but I don't bake much anymore. Her pie crust was her trade mark. She was always the one who was asked to bring a pie. I was feeling a little sentimental without knowing why, while I was busy mixing all the ingredients. I decided on a coconut creme. I made a graham cracker crust from scratch. The second layer was chocolate and whip cream. Then the vanilla pudding topped with more whip cream and toasted coconut.

It was yummy!!!


Today is the 2ND anniversary of my "Buba's" passing. I knew it was coming up, but life has been so hectic, I didn't take time to stop and remember. But she reminded me!!! I believe she was with me yesterday, helping me make that pie!

I bought a dozen PINK ROSES today in her memory. I gave Cowgirls Grace four, My Mother 4, and I kept 4. We all have one for you Desert Rose since you aren't here. The two dried roses are from her service.



I love you "Buba," and you will be in my "HEART FOREVER"

That pie looks delicious! Can you make me one next time I visit?
I miss Buba, too!! What a special talent she had, that she passed on to you. I love that you bought the roses and gave them to other family members. That was a really neat way to recognize the memorial. I think it's neat you still have those dried roses, too. Now I know where I get my sentimentality from, LOL! :) xo
p.s. Is that something new I see, an antler shed peeking out in that photo with the flowers? ;)

I would have never thought to buy roses, that is so sweet. The pie looks yummie and it is always better when it is the recipe of a loved one.

What I want to know is-WHERE IS MY PIECE OF PIE!!! Did I or did I not share my Valentines cookies with you? Did I or Did I not share corn beef and cabbage with you on St. Patrick's day! I'm feelin' so neglected! You must secretly know I've been munchin' on Easter candy for the last week already and don't really need those extra calories! But I still love ya anyway and nobody made pie crust like our Buba!!!

Yes...you got her pie making...I got her BOOBS! I had a house full of guests in the desert when she got sick and I flew back to the PNW. It was the big tennis weekend, and it is going on this weekend.It is hard sometimes to beleive she is gone!
