Once in a Lifetime Pie

 
This is a chocolate peppermint pie. Take a good look because you'll never see one like this on my blog again.

It's good, there's no doubt about that.

It has chocolate graham cracker crust, chocolate pudding filling, cream cheese and whip topping with red and green chips (which don't show) above that, and real whip cream above that, and peppermint sprinkles on top.

However, for the amount of work and fussing it was, it would need to be drop-dead-absolutely-astoundingly-spectacular, not-to-be-approached-by-any-shortcutting-of-the-steps good. Says the person who made it, who isn't really a kitchen fan any longer, "it's not THAT good." Omer says, "Oh, wow!"

If you are a kitchen masochist and want to try it, the recipe is at No Bake Candy Cane Pie

I went out on snowshoes again today. I LIKE snowshoes. The sky was interesting.

There was blue above the sumac.

A nice ending to 2018. See you next year!

In other news: I wrote chapter 15- DISCOURAGED AND PURPLE, in The Secret Cellar, cleared the driveway again, and worked on the sock. I may go to bed early with a book. Who knows.

See Time for Friends for the last cream pie I had, which I did not make

It does look good but like you I don't care to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen. After all I'm in a kitchen all day at work.
Happy New Year

Like the beautiful pictures. Labor-intensive pie I'll leave to you.

I particularly like the sumac pic. The bush, snow, clouds and blue sky make an interesting composition. I found myself lost in it for quite a while. Well done!
