Today was a cooking day and I made two cocoanut creme pies and a 14 inch pizza for dinner. The pies were made this morning and I just had a slice and have to watch myself or I’ll eat the WHOLE thing!! I love cocoanut everything!!! To make the pies I had to ready-made pie crusts in the fridge, used a Rawleigh pie filling and some eggs and milk. I love these pie fillings because the filling turns out so thick and creamy and the only place I’ve been able to find them is at The Cheese Store. These are country type stores usually run by Amish or Mennonite families and when I go to their stores I am in heaven but spend so much more money than I planned. The pie fillings will make nine 9″ pies and use two eggs and a three cups of milk for each pie. I also bought some meringue powder there and it makes beautiful tall meringues!
For dinner I made a basic pizza using the pizza crust mix that I bought at the same store, one bag will make two crusts and all you add is water. I made my crust, covered it with my homemade pizza sauce which I’m almost out of, and then used what I had in the fridge for toppings. That consisted of thinly sliced onions, green pepper, pepperoni, smoked sausage, and mozzarella cheese. It was divine, even if I did make it myself.
Yesterday I tried a new experiment with my Air Fryer and a small bear roast. First, I always boil my roast for about thirty minutes in plain water to roll out any excess fat on the roast. The fat is what can ruin a bear roast!! I drained the roast with was only about one pound, rubbed it with two new seasonings that I found at The Cheese Store, and placed it in the Air Fryer following the instructions for a large beef steak but cut the time in half. It was to die for!!! Not kidding!!! When I took it out I sliced the roast into quarter inch slices that will fit perfectly on a biscuit and we had it for lunch yesterday and then for dinner I poured a brown gravy over it and served with mashed potatoes, green beans and macaroni salad! Did I say I’m trying to lose weight???
