I'm somewhat of a goal oriented person. I enjoy setting goals and mapping out the process it will take to meet them.
I have a number of goals I'm working on right now, and a handful that are sitting on a back burner waiting on me to give them attention and get started on them.
The most recent goal I have made is to make the perfect fried pie.
For a few years while we live in Missouri there used to be this little restaurant on the square of our little town. I don't remember what they served as main course, but on the dessert menu they had fried pies in a variety of flavors. I've had plenty of fried pies in my lifetime, but these were the absolute best I've ever had. The crust was pure perfection and the fillings were as well. We used to take any out of state guests there to eat simply so they can experience those fried pies. They never failed to be a big hit.
Sadly the restaurant went out of business, and even though we no longer live there I find it sad that the world is deprived of those fried pies.
It has become a goal of mine to recreate them. I have armed myself with multiple fried pie recipes, and will be trying a new one every week in hopes I can find one we love.
