Recipe For Chocolate Cream Pie


My family loves pie, but it’s gotten to be a bit of a chore for me to turn on the oven. You know, summer, heat, discomfort; I don’t care to mix the oven with the weather at all. However, once in a while, a storm blows through and the temperature doesn’t get up to the 90s. Then, I hurry to the kitchen and turn on the oven. After all, we might freeze with the AC cranked up and the wind howling outside. This last storm resulted in a Chocolate Cream Pie for the fam.

Cream pies have long been a favorite of my husband’s. He loves pudding and what is a cream pie, but pudding with a crust? Add the whipped cream on top and he is in heaven. I think he may have eaten most of this pie. Knowing how much he loves them, it’s a wonder that I don’t make them more often. I’ll put it on my list of things I should do…..we’ll see how it turns out.

I have already succumbed to his complaints about never having the same meal twice. I handed him the menu calendar and said, “Pick 7 meals and I will make them for a month.” I am on my fourth month and it is KILLING ME!! However, Hubs is happy as a clam. I slip once in a while and make something different and he chuckles in that annoying, “Ha! I knew you couldn’t do it!” way that men have. I am sincerely trying, though. It certainly makes grocery shopping easy, if not exciting.
