Pecan Slab Pie

 

DSC_0031Who doesn’t love a pie that you can feed a crowd without the pressure of making two or three pies?  I ran across Family Circle Magazine’s article featuring Slab Pies and I could not resist pinning it on a pie board.  That is a whole different story!  I was talking to  a friend of mine and mentioned something about seeing a cute idea on Pinterest and she says to me “What is Pinterest?”  You know I didn’t explain it!!!  I thought to myself I wish after wasting hours on end on Pinterest that I could block myself from the site.   So I did her a huge favor and  ignored the question.  She can thank me later!  Anyway back to this slab pie.  It’s easy, quick, delicious, serves a crowd and it’s really pretty!  So put it on your list for 2018 to share with all your friends.  Happy New Year!!

Layered Taco Salad

layered taco salad

I love Mexican food and there is no other words to describe this salad but fantastic!  The salad part is just like any other salad with lettuce, tomato, olives, cheese, and avocado.  The stars of this main dish are the meat and the dressing so don’t change a thing when you make this because they are perfect as they are.  This is an easy to prepare so you will win all around.  The most time-consuming is chopping the onions, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes and cilantro.   It does make a lot.  I mean that I served 10 people and had 2 servings as leftovers.  The leftovers are still good the next day if you don’t add the dressing to the top.  I do like it with some heat so I put really  hot jalapeno peppers with seeds and all in there.  You adjust the heat to your taste.  I love serving this with some crunchy tortilla chips and homemade Pico de gallo.  Yummy!   Make this for your next get together,  serve it on your deck or patio or take it to  your friends to enjoy.  They will thank you!
