Its all still available. Pies? I used to make my own, but it hardly costs more to buy a frozen mrs smiths frozen pie, and they are surprisingly good. The dutch apple is my long time favorite.

Other things on the list are canned. Kings hawaiian rolls are really good. Mashed taters are easy enough to make. Fried chicken is easy so long as it doesnt have to be deep fried.

We have a country buffet in Webster, Fl between the stock pens at the sale barn and the produce market. Best country cooking since my wifeís Georgia grown aunts all died off.

I eat there every chance I get. The fried chicken is the best Iíve ate in years. And all the fresh vegetables you want. Of course I pass on the fresh strawberry shortcake covered in real whipped cream, but my wife does not.

I used to by mrs smiths frozen pies. They are good, I have a local pie co. I wonít name for obvious stalking reasons and buy this now. For me it was a piece of history that is now gone including those around the table. Religion was the prayer before the meal and nothing more. The country dinner I wish I had today. Full bellies, lots of laughs and acceptable insults or jokes on the other family member.

Actually meant Marie Callenderís pies are far superior to mrs smiths IMO. But for me there is a local company that makes a better pie for 6 bucks and I donít have to cook it...

I too have a local favorite restaurant that also sells pies. They're more expensive but worth it for special occasions.

My Grand Mother always said the key to a good pie is having a good crust.

And the key to a good crust is lard in a cold dough. There's no good substitute for lard in a pie crust, though most pie crusts we encounter aren't made with it.

The whole state of lard in America is enough to make me rant. It's hard to find good lard these days. Bad lard is easy, it's overly purified and treated so it has longer shelf life.
