Bob Nelson Comedy Show

Up early for the morning walk with Fred. This morning John, Mike and Leslie joined in for the walk. There were no deer out only the squirrels.





This afternoon John and Mike ran a few errands while Leslie and I sorted through and organized her pictures from South Dakota and Colorado.

Tonight we all attended the Bob Nelson Comedy Show at the Barbara Fairchild Diner. We arrived early and had dinner first. Mike, Leslie and John had chicken salad sandwiches and I had the turkey club sandwich. We also tried a couple of their desserts; bread pudding and saw dust pie. Both were delicious. The Bob Nelson Comedy Show was entertaining. He is very comical and talented. The show lasted for an hour and 45 minutes and was worth every penny.

Saw Dust Pie Recipe:

Saw Dust Pie tastes very similar to pecan pie. The first time we had it was in Kentucky at a place called Patty's Settlement Restaurant.

Here is the recipe:

Saw Dust Pie

7 eggs whites, unbeaten
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 1/2 cups coconut
9 inch unbaked pie shell

Mix all ingredients together and stir by hand. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven untill glossy and set (about 25 to 30 minutes)

Do not overbake. Serve warm with sliced bananas and shipped cream. Serves 6.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.

  4. I just spent a really long time yesterday shredding a fresh coconut...and it was alotta work! I guess that's why we've got machines to do that kind of stuff these days.

    I bet my freshly shredded coconut would be good in that pie! Except I'm not sharing because like I said, it was alotta work!
