Thanksgiving Coconut Pie

Everyone likes pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving and I love it, too. But
just to add another choice to the menu, I sometimes add this easy
coconut pie recipe I found years ago from Betty Crocker.

1 cup shredded coconut (you can use flaked, but shredded will make it
more moist)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and pour into a 9-inch greased pie plate.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes.

Enjoy!

On a recent trip back east, I watched this one hundred year old sailing ship glide through Portland Maine Harbor.

Here is a closer view. In spite of the cloud cover, it was a beautiful day for sailing.

Boston’s Old Buildings

Exploring famous sites in Boston took me back in time. Dr. Howard Reed, my favorite history professor, could easily have been our guide.

This is the famous Old North Church.”One if by land, and two if by sea” is the signal said to have been sent from high in the steeple on the night of Paul Revere’s ride. A National Historic Landmark, this building claims the distinction of being the oldest church building in Boston.
20131006_083544Notice the windows, chandelier, and woodwork. We sat in pews that were box seats, enclosed so that parishioners in the good old days could bring hot embers from their fireplaces, set them in the center of the enclosure, and keep warm on cold Boston days.

Of course, it rained. Here I am in all my glory. Behind me is the skinniest house in Boston. It is four stories tall, but only 10.4 across.
