Mr. Cranky has been very very very upset with Wall Street financiers and especially the bankers. Specifically, he cannot believe that NONE of the major bank CEO's showed up at President Obama's speech on Wall Street last week.
After all, he did save their jobs, their bonuses, their pensions, and much, much more. Couldn't they have shown just the tiniest bit of respect and gratitude? Um, so, okay, I guess I am upset also...
Anyway, I made something for him to help vent his anger:
From left to right: Kenneth Lewis (B of A), Lloyd Blankfein (Goldman Sachs), and John Mack (Morgan Stanley). Alas, there wasn't room to include Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan Chase).
I think of my apple pies as a kind of architecture. I don't simply dump in the sliced and sugared fruit, I arrange the chunks into a tight, interlocking structure. This results in a high pie that completely fills the crust. There is no disappointing shrinkage that leaves the top crust airborne like a bridge over the apples. I can't wait for it to cool! *everybody has an apple pie recipe already, right? If not, head over to my fav, smitten kitchen, for a recipe.
