Menu Plan Monday

This past week, at the What's Cooking potluck I was lucky enough to get a pie crust demonstration from a friend of mine.  I believe that now I have gotten past the fear and will be trying it out all on my own soon. (Thanks Amy!)  I was able to bring a crust home (that I actually rolled out) and today finally got around to putting some filling in it.  I tried Coconut Macaroon Pie a recipe I got from Heart N Soul Cooking.(Thanks Geri!)  It was delicious.  I had to resist the urge to lick the plate clean.  It was that good!  Not too sweet and very flavorful.  My family enjoyed it very much.  My only regret was not having any whip cream to put on top.  I had bought a can of it and it would not work for anything.  It was so frustrating so I believe I will not buy the cans of whip cream any more.  Amy's pie crust recipe was very delicious also.  It was light, tender and had great flavor. 
On to another CRAZY week.

  1. Sounds like a great pie! I never buy whip cream anymore... it's so easy to make yourself with some heavy cream!

  2. What a great friend! I love pie but I'm not great at making the pie crust. Do have any pie crust tips that you want to share?
    Looks like you have a yummy week planned.
    Have a great Halloween or Harvest Festival!

  3. The chicken pot pie sounds REALLY GOOD right about now. It's chilly here.

    I'm glad you liked the tomato soup recipe. It's one of my favorite soup recipes--clears the sinuses right up and it freezes great. If you lived near me I could share tomatoes with you. I have them coming out of my ears and I have no room left in my freezer.
