What Kind of Pie?

When I was young, my mom used to make chess pie.

I know it's a custard pie, but my memory insists on thinking of it as a sort of cheesecake consistency with alternating black and yellow cubes. Memory is a weird thing, because I also do remember it tasting like a less-sweet pecan pie.

Anyway, when I went back to the chess board where I left the tree house, I had pie on my mind. That's the only message here.

Now, that I'm thinking of my mother's pies, the one I'm really missing is grasshopper pie.

This is another in the continuing series of wee toaty explorers, a project to keep me busy while I'm on the road. A nice summary is here. The whole set is available if you click on Wee Toaty Explorers.
