Buckeye frozen pie

There’s nothing like a trip back home to Columbus to bring out the Buckeye in me. Maybe it’s the Buckeye-flavored ice cream at Grater’s, loaded with peanut butter and chocolate chips bigger than my mouth. Or maybe it’s the Buckeye attire sported by half the people in every public venue. Even when it’s not game day. Even at the end of one of the toughest year’s in OSU football history.

So this Shabbos, after our return from a week at Nana’s in good ol’ Ohio, we’ll be finishing off the meal with Buckeye frozen pie. It’s so good that even my Wolverine husband will eat it. Go Bucks!
