And that starts with making pies from the pecans that are constantly falling on my head from the overloaded pecan trees.
I wrote all about this over on Blog con Queso today. But basically, I’m being overrun by pecans and the squirrels who love them. I’ve also found myself, whenever I’m on a conference call and/or a bit stressed out, wandering outside and mindlessly picking up pecans. Lots and lots of pecans.
Y’all. The pecans are freaking everywhere right now. And so since ’tis the season, let’s talk about 10 great pecan pie options. Check it.

So currently, I am rich in my pecans. Camp Mighty is happening later this week, and I’ve been trying to think of something to do to raise money for Charity: Water (everyone who attends camp pledges to raise $200 for Charity: Water) and I also wanted to do something for the Sandy Disaster Relief efforts. So I’m doing what I can with what I have: pecans.
I’ve opened an Etsy shop (Shop con Queso) where I’m selling small batches of Texas Pecan Pralines, Texas Pecan Cookies, Spicy Texas Pecans, Texas Pecan Bourbon Balls, Toasted Texas Pecan Pesto, and Texas Pecan Pie Jam. Proceeds will go to Charity: Water and Occupy Sandy. So go check it out.
And Happy Pecan Season!
