My man is in lockdown mode with his first medical school test this Friday. While I don't expect to see him too much this week, I do want him to come home to a fully stocked fridge and comfortable, welcoming environment.
One of the things that Lash loves is a bite of something sweet at night. I do not have a sweet tooth so I take the easy way out and always have some kind of ice cream in the fridge for him. To make a little something special for this week, this weekend I bake him a chess pie. Chess Pies are a very Southern, old timey dessert, and this recipe is my grandmother's. I hope you enjoy. It was so easy!
