The Green Bay Packers didn't disappoint yesterday afternoon. Well, they tried to, but San Francisco only clawed its way within 6 points. The Pack won, and is on a 2-game winning streak! But there's always Turkey Day, for those of us cynical Packer Backers who are looking for our 6-4 team to live up to negative expectations. We play Detroit on Thursday. And since we shut the Lions out in October, maybe we can stuff them again on Thanksgiving, huh?
I prefer to look on the bright side. Always have been a glass half-full gal, after all. The Packers have the best fans in the NFL, as evidenced by the spirited sousaphonist, above. Yeah, I know all y'all call that horn a tuba, but you're wrong-O!
Ella Numera Dos' last photo project before breaking for Thanksgiving involved a Green Bay Packers' theme. Entitled "Hometown Pride," her portfolio included 19 Superior Snaps such as this one, featuring what she terms "the craziness" of being a Green Bay Packers' fan. "Yes, some of the fans are a little ridiculous, but that is why they are so fun," Ella Dos points out. The fellow featured here is just the tip of the iceberg known as Lambeau Field & environs. More than one former high school band nerd dusts off an ancient instrument to toot at tailgates & in the stadium every Sunday, for sure!
Didn't want to let you get away for the holidays without another pie recipe. This one's a tradition...in taste, in calories & in cholesterol. Not for the timid, that's for durn tootin'!
Susie Clark's Pecan Pie
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 tbs. butter
1 cup pecans, broken in pieces
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Pillsbury Pie Crust (you know, I always cheat on this part!)
Beat eggs well; mix with sugar. Add remaining ingredients (except the crust, of course), mix real well and pour into an unbaked pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-50 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. We like our pecan pie with vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy!
