These pecans are just what the doctor ordered. I made a big batch (multiplied the recipe by 4) in order to share with my parents, my in laws and my hubby. We’re big fans of Jack Daniels down here and deep down I think we keep them in business. You can use any liquor for this I’m sure. The only thing was there wasn’t enough Jack flavor so when they were finished drying I sprinkled on a little more Jack from the bottle and let them dry again. I made the big mistake of making it on a rainy day. I was pleased to see they just needed more time to dy out, but worked out just fine. Either way I wouldn’t let it go to waste.
It’s nice to be back home sleeping in my my own bed again. I titled the post “jacked up pecans” due to my week being jacked up. I love the holidays don’t get me wrong, but what I don’t like is being so mixed up on what day it is. This week I’ll be working through Wednesday and then heading with my friend Laura to Canton to check out the big Canton, Texas Trade Days. Every first weekend of the month there’s a huge outdoor event full of crafts, antiques, food, clothing and the list keeps going. Basically it’s every husbands worst nightmare! Anyway I hope to find some good deals and ideas to take back with me. I’m also on the hunt for some new outdoor yard decor.
