In the Pie of the Beholder

Sweet Potato Pie, Sweet, Crust

“Mom, this pumpkin pie tastes funny,” Dean said making a face.

“That’s because it isn’t pumpkin.  It’s sweet potato pie.”

“Potato?” Dean queried.

“Sweet potato.  It is really nice, and you should thank your Aunt Lottie for making it for us.”

“Um, thank you Aunt Lottie,” he said with a forced smile before taking another bite.

“That’s okay Sweetie. Southern food might take some getting used to for you New Jersey boys.”

Well I hope I will never have to eat enough of it to get use to it, Dean thought.  “Well, I look forward to trying it again.”

  1. Ha! I had a friend make me sweet potato pie. She was Caribbean, so I don’t know if it’s different from a Southern version. But it was so good. My husband on the other hand, he politely declined and yet he loves pumpkin pie.
