I think I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m not totally back to normal yet, I am still really weak and I get dizzy if I stand for too long. But I am feeling much better. I was watching Studio 5 (a local show) yesterday, and guess who was on it. The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond!  Right here in Utah. She is doing a book signing tour. I couldn’t believe the bad timing. I am way to dizzy and lightheaded to be driving, so I knew there was no way I could make it to Salt Lake. I called my husband to share my excitement that the Pioneer Woman was here in Utah. He knows how much I love her blog, so right away he offered to drive me up so I could meet her. Dang I love that man. Unfortunately, the book signing didn’t start till 7:00, and he had to coach my son’s basketball game. So I couldn’t make it. What a bummer! Although, it is probably all for the best. I got lightheaded just thinking about meeting her, so I probably would have passed out with all of the excitement. And that would have been really embarrassing. 🙂I have not really started cooking again, so I’m sharing another recipe from a few weeks ago. My cousin Tami, who helped me make a bucketload of jam, left me with some extra plums. She told me I just had to try this recipe for plum pie. I’d never even heard of plum pie, but she recommended it so highly that I just had to give it a try. It was delicious!!! I can’t wait to steal borrow some plums from my parent’s tree next year so I can make it again.

The plums turn a beautiful purple color as it bakes, and the crumb topping is just perfect. I served it with vanilla ice cream and I highly recommend that. Yum!!
