One Thing Off My List……
As our departure date comes into focus I’m finding a need/desire to do/eat the things I just never bothered to do before now. Perhaps it’s because I figure it’ll be a long time before I ever return to this part of Canada. I’ve lived in Quebec for 3 years now and my friend France was shocked, and or appalled, that I’ve never tried Sugar pie or a Beaver’s tail, although she tells me that Beaver tails aren’t really a French thing.
Anyway, France and her hubby invited us for Thanksgiving dinner last night. It’s strange because none of us really celebrate this holiday, but it was the perfect opportunity to have turkey with all the fixings, and, you guessed it, SUGAR PIE!!
How can I describe Sugar pie? It’s kind of like a cross between a butter tart and pecan pie without the raisins or nuts. France’s pie met three criteria: a golden pie crust, caramelized sugary goodness on top, and the sweet factor.
This pie lived up to the hype. It was delicious, but I have to say, once a year would be sufficient for me. Thanks France, for checking one thing off of my list.
