Thoughts On Strawberry Pretzel Pie:

This great Strawberry Pretzel Pie is not only tasty, but it is super delicious! I will always remember my first job. I worked at a local restaurant and they make strawberry pies there. The restaurant was famous for its "Little Round Pies" and those who lived away would always stop in to get their pie while traveling. The restaurant served several flavors of pies but my favorite was strawberry. The crust was good but it was not like the one in this recipe. The salty flavor of the pretzel contrasting with the sweetness will make your tastebuds dance.

More Information On Strawberry Pretzel Pie:

This recipe is more commonly called Strawberry Pretzel Salad in recipe history. The salad recipe calls for Jello instead of making a glaze. It's A Southern Thing wrote an article called Strawberry Pretzel Salad: A History Of A Southern Favorite That's Not A Salad At All and they provide some history on the subject of this dessert. Another interesting fact, September 28th is National Strawberry Cream Pie Day. Mark it on your calendar!

My Thoughts For The Day:

Fog in rural Missouri

See the line of fog?

My youngest daughter recently received her driving permit and it allows me to enjoy viewing the beauty of our area while in the car. She loves driving and I enjoy the views outside the car. Living in Southwest Missouri is such a blessing. There are many rural roads that can be traveled. It is not uncommon to drive by small dairy farms and see cows, horses, or smaller animals. I have traveled to many places in the United States but there's no place like home. I love the dirt I'm from. There are farms that grow food crops. The most common food crop here in Southwest Missouri is corn. Corn seems to grow well here.

Thanks for reading my thoughts for the day. Please leave a comment and share your thoughts.

Keep on cooking!
