Humble Pie

Humble pie.

I don’t know what I thought “humble pie” could look like, but beloveds this is it.

Some might also call this a homemade sweet potato pie, with a homemade crust... and it is also that.

One of falls most fabulous treats. 🍁🥧

Somewhere around step 8, I noticed my vanilla was low. I googled, it said I could use a lil almond extract, said it was of similar flavor profiles.

You can.

But I am here to tell you, you shouldn’t.

In fact, there are a few other things in life that I am accepting that for me and my spirit, there is no substitute.

As I sat there, reflecting on the 6 hour journey I made with this pie I couldn’t help but to humbled how just a lil ole’ 1/2 teaspoon of something unaligned with the recipe had upended (that’s dramatic but 😗)the entire thing.

Align me with the whole of who I am, for which there are no substitutes.

Saints, I will bake again, in time... till then. It looks good, taste aight...and with grace and practice, all things will be just right.
