I do hope this Monday finds everyone well and refreshed from a wonderful weekend. After a full Saturday of painting our master bathroom, FW and I soaked in the outdoor hot tub for about 30 minutes to ease our aching joints and stiff backs. It does not help that I went to a Zumba class on Friday evening and my muscles were already aching. Ahhhhh, the joys of aging.
I can finally say that our master bathroom is complete - trim work and all. We painted it a buttery yellow and the trim is white. Our cabinets and tile are white too making it so very bright and cheery. This is just one of the many unfinished and ongoing projects around our home. I find it so rewarding when
I we complete a house project. It gives us such a sense of accomplishment and pride and joy and relief.
The aroma of our patio campfire filled the evening air as we soaked our sore muscles in the steaming hot tub and sipped our glasses of wine. It is such a wonderful way to wind down and relax. Thank you God for these blessings.
The girls had begged their daddy to build a campfire only for them to quickly lose interest and become involved in watching the animated movie Planet 51. So, after our relaxing soak, FW and I continued our evening alone outside on the patio enjoying the peace and quiet as we slowly became entranced by the glowing embers and flickering flames. We soon grew hungy and that's when we decided to make mountain pies over the campfire.
If you aren't a hick from the country like me, you may have never heard of mountain pies. Basically, mountain pies consist of bread, butter and fillings and are cooked over the open fire, or "faar", as it is commonly pronounced in this neck of the woods. Mountain pie filling can be anything from cheese and pepperoni to apple pie filling or anything leftover in yer fridge that you can stuff between two slices of bread. We have a special cast iron sandwich maker that we use to cook our "pies" over the open fire. I'm not sure if it was the wine or the
pot, sex, hot tub, but those mountain pies that we cooked were so dang good, I am still thinking about them today!
Here is our Saturday Night Special Mountain Pie recipe:
2 slices bread, buttered on the outside
Inside filling: 2 tablespoons pizza sauce
Cook in pie iron over open fire until bread is lightly browned and crisp and the cheese is ooozing out. *drool*
