For The Vice Presidential Debate

Yesterday I mentioned that I was hosting a Vice Presidential debate night dinner and wanted to make foods from each of the two states of the two men running for the office. And that I went to a website that listed the Official foods of various states and then said that there was no official food from either Wisconsin (Paul Ryan) or Joe Biden (Delaware). Well, I was WRONG! And, I have to say, it was my daughter Meredith, a super-smart, super-researcher who told me so. She read the blog and actually went to that site and saw right there that there WAS an official food for Delaware. Peach pie.  She offered me an excuse. She said that I must have been so excited by the Indiana Sugar Cream Pie that I chose for the evening that my eyes went right by the Delaware option.  Well, that’s very generous. Truth to tell, when I saw Meredith’s reply online I thought, “that can’t be” and then I went to the website and sure enough, there it was, Peach pie as the official food for Delaware. And I thought “did they put that there overnight?” I would have sworn it wasn’t there the day before. But it must have been. And I missed it! And really, maybe that Sugar Cream Pie option just distracted me! I have to say, it was so good that my practice pie is ALL GONE thanks to my husband mainly, who usually doesn’t eat dessert.  Meredith suggested I make both another Sugar Cream Pie and Peach Pie for tonight. But the peaches are no longer as wonderful as they were just a few short weeks ago. So I won’t. But if anyone out there can get a hold of good peaches and would like to make one, here’s the recipe I posted just a few short weeks ago.
