    Hickory and a bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup. Maybe a Kirkland's small batch bourbon
    and a book to read before bed.

    Sorry boys, but I can't wait for the suitors to start a callin'. House full of bitches and I could use a little cross-fire while I'm pissing outside.

    Besides: As if the poor son-of-a-groan is going to stand a chance against the daughter of the woman I married!

    Watching the LSu-ALA game, drinking a home brewed Cream Stout. Burning some cherry, although pretty warm here today. About 48° so not a lot going into the stove. Roll tide!!!

    Do you have a basement? If so, install an Englander 28-3500 in it, and repeat after me. "Honey I'm going down to get the furnace going for the night-you go ahead to bed, I'll be in in a little while..." :lol:

    Drinking bourbon mixed with more bourbon with a dash of bourbon. Watcing the game and burning, of all things, some perssimon (too much bourbon to worry about correct spelling) slab wood.

    Now where is my drink? What were we talking about?

    We were talkin about why you might want to wash that Bourbon down with some persimmon flavored Bourbon so you don't end up on a slab, or something like that!!!!!

    btuser sounds like you need a drink.

    Skip the bullet.

    Don't be ashamed of that insert, thats what many of us use!

    I used to work for the two people that started Mother's Pies.

    One was named Don and the other one was named Jack. When I worked for them they ran a company that built industrial pressure vessels.

    Got some smaller Ash going in the insert and sipping on some ok Sam Adams Octoberfest and then I am finishing with a Dog Fish Head 90 min IPA. So good. So Good. 75 in the front rooms, 70 in the bedrooms. Going to finish watching the football game and hit the sack. No idea what time the 3yr old will wake up tomorrow with the time change. Kept him up 45 mins later hoping for some extra sleep tomorrow. We will see.

    Night all.

    I too have a 3 year old and know that tomorrow is going to be tough. Also know that the Mrs. ran out of Sam Adams Octoberfest tonight because I pulled a few off her this week and she didn't seem so happy about that as she told me only winterfest was to be found in the store yesterday.

    With that, I'd say, the seasons must be changing!

    Gamma keeps talking about Dogfish Head. I just checked their website. A Safeway in town has it. Guess I gotta give it a shot.

    New ad: "Dogfish Head IPA. A finally crafted beer available only in boutique grocery stores like Safeway. Next to the Natural Light." :lol:

    Just back from the pub a friend and I like to visit whenever they're in town. While there I had a Saratoga IPA, a Road Dog (porter) from Flying Dog brewing in CO, and an Old Chub (scottish ale) from Oskar Blues Brewery in CO. They can all of their beer, btw. Just started the stove with some bits and ends of punky ash from area. Was going to go to bed, but after reading this thread I might rustle up a homebrew.

    the consistency of your dough may not allow for the fluting to stand up....so what as long as it freakin tastes good.
    When I make mine, I roll it out to be a lil bit larger than the pie plate and I just fold the ends over inward and pinch the ends together upward with the the thumbs and forefingers...leave a little gap between each, that part should stand up nicely...
    If you want the crust golden and crusty, a lil beaten egg white brushed on top will do it...

    I freakin miss everything....like this thread...in the peak of boozing and burnin.... %-P Not that I wasn't doin it....just wasn't logged on dammit...

    BB, if you try Dogfish Head...pics or it didn't happen... :p

    I ended up getting that bullet. Bulleit bourbon that is. Shot myself up pretty good.

    The new puppy got up on the counter somehow(a mutt mix between a Jack Russell+Rat Terrier) and ate 1/4 of the pie. The other side's still good, right?

    Gamma:
    I cut both crust roughly even with themselves, tuck/fold them under, then pinch. Should I be rolling them up/inwards? I can get the edgeds to look perfect but then they just fall in the oven. I think I figured it out last night. This year I started wrapping the edge with foil for the first 30 min to keep it from burning, and instead should be doing that for the last 30 min so the edge is set faster. I'm also experimenting with bake/convection bake. Pressure is on, Thanksgiving is nearing and this year I'm coming away with the title.

    There's a great movie called "Beer Wars" that digs into the craft beer movement, and what it takes to get beer on a shelf in the supermarket.

    I missed the party here last night, too, but I was celebrating nonetheless.

    Brought in my week's wood supply in the morning, and am down to nothing left but the good stuff: 2 cords of spruce at 20%mc, almost 2 cords of fire-killed spruce (10%) and my birch at 16%. Last night I burned my last piece of the punk that I have been eking out to get by with, and now I'm rolling in knee-high clover. Enough of the good stuff (spruce and birch *is* the good stuff in these parts, friends) to last all winter. An elegant sufficiency of wood is stacked under the deck such that all I'll have to do for spruce for months is step outside the back door and load up the sled, and drag it into the sunroom and unload, in contrast to last winter, when we would talk the sled out to the woods, dig through the snow, and drag in loads of rounds that had been left behind by PO. My birch supply is tucked under the garage overhang, so I have to step out for a couple of loads of that a week. And I get to pull it in downhill. I.feel.so.pampered.

    Ha! I feel like a squirrel who has moved into someone's cabin and found a winter's worth of peanut butter, and is laying in a pile of insulation chatting to itself about the conveniences of cabin living.

    Saturday night: concord grape juice on ice, watching The King's Speech w/son. Exercise consisted of moving periodically from the couch to the chair in front of the fire and back.

    btuser: try cutouts. Roll out a rectangle of crust, brush w/egg or milk or water wash, sprinkle w/cinnamon sugar, and cut out leaf shapes. Add veins with the back of a paring knife, and overlap these all the way around the perimeter of the pie. Roll out the pie crust and trace an apple with a toothpick, then cut it out with the paring knife. Ooh-ahh stuff. You will be legend. You will take your son-in-law into the kitchen someday, shut the door, and show him this technique, and he will do the same with his (because he will have only daughters). You can also make cutouts from dough and set them on top of pumpkin pie. Props will be given for this as well.
