Bidness As Usual

I went to the eye Dr. Monday,and she said everything was looking good.I have to use eye drops every day for glaucoma. They put drops in my eyes and dilated my pupils,and shined that really bright light in them.Then I went to the shop and picked up a load of beams at the yard going to Export,Pa.It was almost dark when I left the Dr.'s office and I could see pretty good.By the time I chained my load down and left it was full dark,and everything was a little blurry,and every time I met a car their headlights looked like aircraft landing lights.So I made it up to Charmco,WV about 10 pm,decided to take a nap for a couple of hours,and woke up at 6 am. Still got to Export around lunch time.Then went to Macedonia,Oh. and loaded to Roanoke,then took a load of Kyanite to Chester,WV and back to Macedonia and Roanoke.I'm off until Monday morning when I have to go to Tightsqueeze,Va. and load a load of pipeline pipe going to Anderson,S.C. Stopped by Food Lion on the way home yesterday to pick up a few things,and the bill came to $92.22.Even got a turkey to smoke in the old smoker oven-haven't used that in a while.

Sounds like you've been busy, and getting ready for Turkey day. I dread it we gotta do our thanksgiving shopping on monday. I'm just glad I don't have to work this year.

Yeah it kind of snuck up on me, I didn't realize Thanksgiving was next week,thought I had another week to go for some reason.I just bought a turkey so I could smoke it,haven't done that since last year,and they're really good smoked.My Dad brought me a box of sweet potatos that he grew when he came up to the stew last weekend.I'll get some Captain Morgan's for flavoring and make some sweet potato pies.

We're bad for my weight too! I'm 6 feet tall,and I got up to about 230 lbs. at one time,then after my wife passed away I lost down to under 200 but now I seem to be going the other direction again,at a rapid pace. A good sweet potato pie is hard to find anymore,so I make my own-they're real easy to make. I wouldn't give 5 cents for a punkin pie,but I love sweet potato pie.Some people say there's no difference,but there most certainly is.

We're about in the same boat - I'm 5'11 and 225#, up from about 185# not too long ago.

The doctor says I need to go back there. or look at blood pressure and cholesterol medicine.

And I don't want to do the medicine.

Just the same - I'd like to know more about the sweet potato pie.

Thanks,

Paul VS

I'm glad you asked- I just cook the sweet potatos,you can boil or bake them,peel them and put them in a mixing bowl,put in about a quarter stick of butter,couple of eggs,brown sugar,about a half cup of milk,vanilla-or I used to season them with bourbon,but found the Captain Morgan's spiced rum is good in them,instead of using vanilla.The alcohol cooks out of course,but it leaves a nice flavor.Doesn't take much,half a cup maybe for a couple of pies.Mix all this stuff up good and pour it into pie shells and bake 'em 'til they're done.This is all right out of my head,I can find you a "real" recipe with exact amounts if you want,but this is close.
