The husband informed me that Dr. Pepper has a dessert contest every year at the Christmas party. He advised me that I was making my pecan pie to enter and we were going to win. Then he proceeded to tell me that he has already told everyone at work, including Betty Crocker (the past winner), that they was goin' down!
I told him to quit talkin' smack at work but he wouldn't listen. He said you can talk smack when you have something to back it up and he did, my pecan pie. So this had gone on for about a month until the Christmas party last Friday.
So did the husband have to apologize for all the trash talk?
NO WAY JOSE! I won!!! Oh yea, oh yea, it's my birthday.
Now I'm the proud owner of a Garmin GPS unit, the prize for first place. Second place was a key lime pie. The guy admitted to buying it at a bakery. The husband really had to gloat then.
Betty Crocker asked for my recipe. The husband told her it was a longtime family secret (whatever! it's out of a cookbook!) and we don't give it out. The later is true. I keep the recipe under wraps. I want to have one thing I can claim I'm good at so I'm selfish and hardly ever give it out. Is that bad of me?
Really, it is pretty close to any run of the mill pecan pie recipe. I think the secret is in the mixing! Shhh...
