Well we can all give thanks to Alan, from Sepia Saturday who has decided to sweeten our posts, or perhaps leave us nestled with a pigeon or other blackbird recipe or two...with Sepia Saturday this week..... just check out his blog if you really want to behold some stunning pie selections...you be the judge, okay?
|Meet Jean Halmond, on July 6th 1939, she is just putting on the finishing touches to a 30 pound cherry pie made especially for President Roosevelt in Washington, D.C. - courtesy of the Library of Congress, in Washington, D.C.|
|Nothing makes a woman happier than...a finger licking yummy pie! What better place to find delicious tasting pies than at the New Mexico Fair, at Pie Town, New Mexico of course. - Courtesy of Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. in October 1940.|
and yes, there really is a town named, Pie Town.
Here's a fun little youtube video from Taos to Pie Town, these days, good music, great views, and a cool little pie shop, "Pie-O-Neer" home of some tasty pies. Even the Pie-O-Neer" has a few videos of it's own!
Are you a camper or even a backyard grill-chef, who is craving a yummy cake/pie treat? ...and want it quick? Try a Cherry Ooh-La-la, - it's easy to prepare, take a slice of angel-food cake with cream cheese thinned just slightly with milk. Top with a spoonful of cherry pie filling. Wrap in foil and toast over coals. Ooh-La-la ...good!
|Meet Mary Mutz, from Moreno Valley, Colfax County, New Mexico. This was taken in February of 1943, on the Mutz Ranch and Mary has just prepared an "Apple pie" for her family.|
My next two photos are also from the Mutz Ranch, in New Mexico during 1943, and also courtesy of the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C. It seems I'm not the only person who found much interest in the Mutz family and their ranch. A visit to the Library of Congress photo collection shows a great many photos taken on their ranch.
I first found Mary's photo exceptionally interesting with a pretty Mary busy at work in her kitchen, living somewhere in the great southwest, on a ranch even, and can you believe it, in 1943 she's wearing jeans in her photo!
|Here is Mary again, as she washes the dishes and other family members help dry and put them away. The children seem to be busy playing some sort of game don't you think?|
|Oh yes, this is one of those lovely old time photos that I think if only it were in color....it does appear that there may be snow on the mountains....what a lovely spot to romp around and raise a family.|
