Clouds & Rain ~ Grape-Peanut Butter Salad ~ Turkey Breast Sandwich ~ My Mountain

Good 39º foggy morning. 

Yesterday it stayed dark, cloudy, and we got mo' rain, 1/4"!

This recipe from Jerry's dad's, Hardin Maxwell, mother Lena Edwards Maxwell. She was a Texas lady who always made this to go with fried chicken.

Grape-Peanut Butter Salad
1 bunch green seedless grapes, rinsed, drained, and off the stem.
1 cup (or thereabouts) of Best Foods Mayonnaise
1 cup (or thereabouts) of creamy peanut butter
(amounts of mayo and pb depend on the number of grapes.) 
Mix peanut butter and mayonnaise until smooth. Add in grapes and stir.

This is strictly a Southern thing and so good! My Daddy, being from Alabama, he and I always had mayonnaise and peanut butter sandwiches!

Dinner was a turkey breast I got from Schwans.

The length of the breast was perfect for slicing to fit the rolls...

A little lettuce and some mayonnaise and cranberry sauce! YUMMMMMMM!

Chair, wine, TV....

We hope your sweet tooth is ready to celebrate National Lemon Cream Pie Day on November 29th. We know this time of year is more typically associated with pumpkin pie, but honestly we’ll take any excuse to celebrate any kind of pie—especially a pie that's been around for thousands of years. Historians say lemon desserts have been around since the Middle Ages! Whipped cream, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer: it didn’t show up until the 16th century. It first appeared in recipes in Italy in the mid-1500s and then traveled to France and showed up in recipes there just after 1600. Somewhere between then and now, someone had the brilliant idea to marry them together in a way that’s basically sunshine baked into a pie dish. So grab your fork and let’s dig in to this delectable holiday
How to Celebrate National Lemon Cream Pie Day
1. Go to a diner 
Cream pies of all kinds—chocolate, banana, coconut—are a classic diner dessert. We happen to think this no-frills setting only enhances the enjoyment of a slice of pie. Find your local greasy spoon, grab a seat at the counter, and dig in.
2. Or bake one yourself 
No matter whether you choose to go the above no-bake route or take on a more complicated recipe, lemon cream pies are basically fail-proof. They’re also a choose-your-own-adventure baking experience. You can go with a classic butter crust, or mix it up with a graham cracker crust. Want some extra tang to back up the lemon? Mix some sour cream into the filling. Feel like it needs a little extra elegance? Shave some white chocolate on top, or even try sprinkling it with coconut flakes.
3. Make a cocktail to match 
If you feel like pairing an adult beverage with your pie (who wouldn’t?) try a Lemon Drop: pour vodka, fresh lemon juice, and sweetener (triple sec, simple syrup, or just plain sugar) into a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake, strain into a glass, and garnish with a fresh lemon slice. It’s elegant, and deceptively easy
