Nostalgia Tuesday: Aunt Ena’s pies were the best thing since sliced pie



After spending the last 5 days in Atlanta, I had to break out some Georgia pictures for Nostalgia Tuesday this week.

Here my sister and I are sitting on the tailgate of my grandfather’s pickup with our Great Aunt Ena.

I don’t think there was ever a time that we visited Uncle Thomas and Aunt Ena where pie wasn’t involved. Aunt Ena made those kinds of pies you’d see on the cover of a Southern Living cookbook. You know … the ones that were never actually IN the cookbook, because no recipe will help you figure out how keep a mountain of meringue that huge from falling.

Here are two more bonus photos from the visit:

AWWW! What sweet kids! And What about the cakes? – like the lemon “cheesecake” that wasn’t really cheesecake and actually had no cheese. It was a 3 layer white cake with a lemon-curd type filling between each layer and on top. And the angel biscuits and the fried okra and the . . . . Rats! I’m drooling on the keyboard!
