Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Dad!

This weekend we headed to Santa Barbara to celebrate my dad's birthday. He loves pecan pie, but never gets one as a whole pie is too much for one person (not for me) So I made him single serving size pies and vacuum sealed them with my new favorite find, Reynolds Handi-Vac. I saw it at my grocer store (on sale for $5 plus it came with a couple bags) so I thought I'd give it a try....LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

I vacuumed sealed the left over pecans...

Yes, I also made extra pie dough and vacuumed sealed that too...

After I froze the pies, I then vacuumed sealed them, did I mention I love to vac-seal? Fun!

I'm ready to make a trip to Costco, just so I can buy things to vacuumed seal...
Have a fun Monday!

Happy Birthday, Dad!! :)

I bought my handi-vac when they were free after rebate and I, too, LOVE it!! I have a BOX full extra baggies (which I bought with coupons making them about 50c per box) and they should last me at least a year!

Have fun!

I have one of those handi-vac things - they were giving them away on the streets of NYC - but I haven't used it! Maybe now I will. Hope dad had a great birthday - and the pies look soooooo yummie!
