The Secrets of Really Great Pie

Looking upriver. Klamath River at Dolans Bar.

Last night I dreamed I was visiting this pie making class.

I was telling the pie makers about this recipe I wanted to try. It’s a pumpkin pie but you put chunks of dark chocolate onto the pie crust before you pour the filling in. I have this recipe in real life and, for reasons unknown, I still haven’t tried it.

In the dream one of the pie makers made a pumpkin pie with two handfuls of candy corn.

When I woke up I kinda wanted to look online and see if there was such a recipe. But I’m not sure how I would feel if there was.

My only other comment of the day: is the “tips to a flat belly” ad financing the Internet? Almost every single site I read has these ads for the secrets to a flat belly. I clicked on it and right now it’s on sale, for a limited time (heh heh) for $40. I guess it’s a book and secrets? I spent about 20 years of my life as a professional dieter and I can say with a great deal of confidence FOR FREE that it’s how much you eat vs. how active you are. There is no magical formula because believe me, I would have found it. I guess I should keep my thoughts to myself because otherwise who is going to pay for the Internet?

    In one fail swoop you destroyed the economic stability of the Internet, and blatantly told a secret that no one is supposed to know. Way to go. Good job.

    Yeah you have titles! Very funny on the ads. Of course, you're dreaming about pies. I'm thinking of your story.

    making a pie? Making a pie you have the recipe for and haven't yet? Making a pie with a twist that sounds intriguing–has someone else already done it? I love dreams.

    You mean to lose weight, all you have to do is eat less than the calories you burn? Intriguing.
