4 Uses for Pie Dough...other than pie!

Y'all, it's TexFest time. Without even knowing what it is, doesn't it sound fun? TexFest is when my favorite grocery store, my second home, my Cheers (where everybody knows my name...they don't, but wouldn't it be cool if they did ala Norm and poured me a beer?), H-E-B highlights Texas products throughout the store.

4 Uses for Pie Dough other than pie! |
I discovered a new product this week...the Texas Pie Company Orignal Dough Puck. It's a wonderful little gem of a pie crust located in the freezer section. Oh, by the way, it's made right here in the Lone Star State.

There are SO many things you can do with a pie crust, other than make pie (which is never a bad thing, obviously). I'm going to share 4 of them with you today.

Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Mudd Pie

a review of Trader Joe's Mudd Pie | from a weekly #traderjoes review series
We want to make sure you guys are ready for Fat Tuesday. I had something else in my cart to review but put it back as soon as I spied this baby. It looked decadent and just the ticket for a splurge before Lent.

Trader Joe's Mudd Pie is an ice cream pie, and I misplaced my receipt, so I'm going to guess it's in the neighborhood of 5 bucks. Described by Trader Joe's as "coffee ice cream with a fudge swirl in a chocolate crust."

[Note: be careful as you cut into it...I got a little forceful with the knife and went all the way through the foil pan.]

We Love You,, Cookies. (Bye Bye Birdie Cookies)

I CANNOT believe that I forgot to post these. I only realized it when I was searching my own blog (I know, it's weird) for these cookies and saw they weren't there.

Way back in November (remember November?), Jack's school put on their very first full-length theater production, Bye Bye Birdie. The school is new and one of the things I love about it is that the students have the chance to try different activities. In other words, the kids don't need to have played competitive soccer since the age of 3 to be on the high school soccer team.

Jack tried out for the musical despite never having been in choir. He's a musical kid...he learned piano by ear, but I've never really heard him sing.
