Not delicate or quality pie slicing techniques. Twisting turning motion from the pie tin to the plate. Slice delivered with a downward twist on the front.
Not homemade. Store bought. Neighbors bought an extra while shopping down south. Wife said to. As for me, I will not buy one. Simple: I cannot quit eating once I start. It is painful to turn my back and try to find something to occupy my mind and time. Distractions! Will power is zero!
I imagine piemakers with extrusion guns full of chocolate pie filling and one with the same of whipped topping. A machine then finishes it off with chocolate sprinkles. Then boxing, storing and shipping. Eight bucks. I would pay $50 on the street corner. So best never to bring one home..
I forget about it soon enough. But not this past Easter Sunday. Set it in the fridge Saturday night and it sat there for 9 hours. Waiting. I refused to open the door and make eye contact. And I could not sneak a midnight taste as the queen bee would know in the morning.
In a world gone mad, we can still find a chocolate pie.

Easter weekend. Fishing, like hunting, for sustenance.
Family freezers now full of fish fillets for a year. Neatly stored along with hunting seasons deer meat.
Look at the tip of the front fin of the cat fish and see the brighter solid bone from the inner fin towards the tip. That tip is a razor sharp needle and will easily draw blood if grabbing the fish incorrectly or, quite often, when the fish flip flops while trying to handle it.
East Texas norm of frying cat fish is dragging the fillet through corn meal and then into the frying pan. Folks here love it. But the bride and I are used to a light batter on fish and prefer to use a tempura mix. We have been told that 7 UP mixed in self-rising flour works well too.
Catfish are good eats!!
