Dimetapp Pie and really good pie

28 Nov

This is what happens when you invite an unknown entity to your Thanksgiving:

He wasn’t all that unknown, he was a friend of my brother, but he likes to play mad scientist in the kitchen, and this pie, which my brother bravely tasted for us, is what he brought.

In order to preserve his anonymity we’ll call him MadMan, or MM for short.

MM made Kool Aid pie. It is like key lime pie without the eggs. It involves Kool Aid and sweetened condensed milk. I feel like perhaps grape was just the wrong flavor for this pie that reeked of white trash, but I suppose I am just an optimist who will live out her days in a trailer.

Except I am planning on my trailer being my Starwagon on the set of my sitcom.

Back to pie. Kool Aid pie was mostly a joke since everyone knew I was making both pumpkin pie and THE Pie.
MM more than redeemed himself from his pie, to the extent that I feel he ought to share his name. He needs to take credit for his cranberry sauces. He made a whiskey-orange infused version and a bacon version. Delectable. I did not taste the bacon one, naturally but i hear it was wicked good. When I get the recipes to both sauces I shall blog them.

Aannnnnnnd, that’s all I have for you this week, folks. I barely have time to write this so why do I even think you have time to read it?

Never mind. Read it anyway. Go back and read all my blog entries. And pretty please comment! I talk back.

Ok, I gotta go learn lines. Audition lines and a script for a shoot I’m doing this weekend. Yeaaaaaa, December acting work.

Cheers, y’all!

    Best of luck with your shoot and all the auditions! It sounds like you’ve got a busy month ahead of you. Whiskey-orange infused cranberry sauce- woaah that’s a mouthful. Kool Aid pie? I kind of want to taste it to see how bad it was lol

      Oh you don’t want to taste it trust me-just the smell was frightening. My brother took one spoonful and that was it! Which is shocking considering his ability to eat…

      Oh no don’t make it! No wait, actually do, and tell me if another flavor worked. although if you want the recipe I’d have to get the recipe from the guy who made it. Whose cranberry recipes I’m still waiting for too, haha.

    It’s not April right? It’s November. So that beauty is no joke. GREG

      Oh no! Maybe it isn’t. I’m almost embarrassed for a pie master like yourself to go to my blog and have to see this atrocity, haha.
      But who knows, perhaps another flavor would be amazing…

    the color is awkward, but it must be delicious!

    • Ellen December 3, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

      Alas, I could not tell you if it was good-my brother said it was not, but I suppose if you really like the taste of grape Kool Aid it would be good!

    YAY – I can’t wait to VISIT you in your trailer of your sitcom! Or perhaps I’ll be an extra one day just so I can hang around on set next to your genius :).

      You can hang with my genius any day of the week, bwahahaha! Oh, oops, that was my evil genius laugh. I’ll try to stick to regular genius for the occasion;)
