First Pie!

Mmmmmm, 4 cups of organic BLUEBERRIES!!! We made our first homemade pie for tomorrow.

crimping the edges of the dough

Both of my girls helped me out. Sorin mixed the berries with cinnamon, corn starch, nutmeg, salt and lemon, then pinched and cut the crust, while Amelie ate the excess crust and helped clean up.

Outside of a couple of juicy cracks in the crust, I'd say it's not bad for my first try at homemade pie. Tomorrow will be the taste test, and we're all having a hard time waiting because it smells SO GOOD!

Strangely, when the pie came out of the oven the blueberries were bubbling in a boiling fashion… this caused the heart at the center to beat up and down for quite a while. It creeped Sky out so much that he had to leave the room. “It’s alive!!!

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I’m not baking until tomorrow (molassas cookies & caramel apple pie) but did the crock-pot tofurkey in onion/cranberry sauce, mushroom gravy and cornbread stuffing with sage, celery & soy sausage today. (like Daniel, I still need the meat substitute!) We’re eating w/ non-veg friends so I’m bringing my own!
