A Very Happy Memorial Day

... and a great birthday dinner for an incredibly cool and fabulous Dad!

Menu
Relish Tray (green onions, pickles, radishes, olives)
Devilled Eggs
Grilled Ribeye Steaks
Steamed Broccoli with Garlic
Potato Salad
San Pellegrino Water

Then, a postprandial walk followed by
Fudge Pie and Coffee


My Grandma Chance's Fudge Pie (recipe courtesy of her friend Inda)

In a bowl, mix 1.5 cups sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa, and 2 tablespoons flour. Then add half a cup of evaporated milk and 2 eggs. Mix. Melt half a stick (4 tablespoons) of butter and add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add to mixture.

Pour into unbaked 9-inch pie crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Especially delish with Cool Whip, or real whipped cream for you fancy types.

Fudge pie - I must try it! I hope you had a great memorial day - we had no holiday today, just a plain work day. (We have a holiday coming up next week, June 6 - our July 4...)
