Today on the first hour of The Diane Rehm Show (NPR), the guests were Robert Walker, Norman Ornstein, Naftali Bendavid and Chris Van Hollen. The second hour was David Walker, Jan van Deursen and Felipe Sierra.
I'm doing pies this year for Thanksgiving (at my mother's). Cedric and I flipped a coin to decide who got Christmas Day and who got Thanksgiving Day. So we'll do his family for Christmas.
Which is good but I have to make three pies and I'm so low on time. I am not doing pie crust from scratch. I am cheating by buying pie shells.
Anyway, I have to make a cherry (no problem), a lemon pie (not too hard) and a chess pie. That last one makes me nervous. (If it makes me very much more nervous, watch me just order one at the bakery.)
