Title: It's that time again!

Blog Entry: My husband just came in to show me something; he was excited!  It was about a half cup full of ripe pecans! True, it's not much...but it's the start of the 'pecan season'. We have a friend with a farm and apparently a lot of pecan trees because last year, we ended up with more than 2 full grocery sacks full of pecans!  Luckily, my husband doesn't mind 'shelling' them because I sure don't have the patience. Actually, the only thing we use them for is to make Pecan Pancakes. But they sure are yummy!  And of course, my husband loves to eat them plain.   I can remember when my late father-in-law would pick up pecans from his two trees and give us a quart of them. I had a hard time not laughing when Ed would say: now Dianne can bake/cook with them.  No, I never did use any of them; my husband nibbled on them! And since there weren't that many, I didn't bother trying to find recipes in which to use them.   However, last year we had been going to Denny's--where I usually had their 'healthy' choice meal: whole wheat pecan pancakes, egg whites, & turkey bacon. So I decided to try homemade pecan pancakes--and they were really good!   So I look forward to doing that again this year--which is a good thing, since I just looked & can't find that item on Denny's current menu!   Right now, their 'specials' are things made with pumpkin.
