I say "Peecan" Pie.

And my friends laugh at me.  I'm from New York, sorry!
 
Again, this post is mostly relevant to those in the Portland area - there is a new sign up page for the Cooking Vegan for the Holidays Class this Sunday.  
Please register or email info@tryveganpdx.com if interested~

Secondly, the tator-tot-licious Hungry Tiger Too has unveiled a newly updated vegan menu.  Go check it out and let Stumptown Vegans know what you think!  I'll be going very soon myself.

And for everyone - Todd X's Pecan Pie is a great vegan achievement, though I hear Sweetpea's unveiled a new pecan pie that is also the shit.  I also keep hearing about their new sticky buns and have yet to investigate, huh?

This weekend I made it again in preparation for Sunday's class for some lucky hungry friends:


Vegan! Pecan! Pie! Bourbon!  

I also served some impromptu roasted potatoes.

Roasted Yukon Gold, German Butterball and Yam with sea salt, 
Spice Depot Hot & Spicy seasoning and canola oil.

Terra said...

How else would you pronounce pecan? (I'm British)

Jen said...

yeah, my friends that say "puh-KAHN" make fun of me for saying pee-can too. have you ever had fresh pee-cans from the trees. absolutely amazing. i don't drink alcohol, or even eat it if cooked in food. otherwise that pie sounds really good!

Oh!
Be still my heart! Peeeecaaaan Piiieee, with Bourbon, that's how we do, too in the South.

I'm so all over that this weekend.

Michelle said...

As you might guess (or have already heard), I say "pee-can," too.

Chelsea said...

That way of pronouncing pecan makes me think of a toucan bird for some reason.

Kati said...

I can't force myself to say puh-CAHN, it's just not natural. J makes fun of me, though. Either way, they're tasty right? Especially as pie...I think everyone can agree with that.

Bianca said...

Well, I say "pa-con." But I won't hold it against ya. :-) Specially if you share a slice with me.

Mandee said...

Peecan is the correct way to say it! I don't know a single person who says "puh-carn" it sounds silly :P

And I love love love pecan pie.

Kelly said...

Holy Crap, I have to make roasted potatoes for dinner tonight now, just based on that picture alone. I think Im craving some crispy baby redskins, actually.

We tried both the vegan taco salad and Spanish scramble this past weekend at the Hungry Tiger. Both were super good. I really liked the menu changes. Other items of interest were the build your own scramble and the vegan tacos.

I also say peecan!

I very happy to find a vegan blogger from Oregon! I'm down here in Roseburg. I wish I made it to Portland more often, but it's quite a long drive to do too often.
