Birthday Pie

A couple of ibuprofen and a glass or two of wine last night had me thinking I was well and fine. So I woke, got Isaac to school (both girls were running fevers) and perused the cookbooks for a recipe that matched the ingredients on hand. Blueberry it was. And good it was. Big sister & I agreed that it's probably harder to make a bad pie than a good pie, so I'm not bragging about my mad pie-making skillz or anything.

As the day wore on, I wore out. Sometimes you can't ignore an illness out of you. This would be one of those times. Luckily, Motrin and liquor can mask it for a little while.

What a beautiful pie :) I think making a good looking pie is difficult. Looks great! I hope you recover quickly. Take care of yourself.

I've been catching up on reading your blog, and I can't believe how long your family has been under the weather. It is always worse when mom is sick, so I hope that you are feeling better. I think that their Spring Break is next week, so I hope that everyone is well, and can enjoy some outdoor time.

I can't believe how gorgeous your pie is...especially given the fact that you are not feeling well!

I must admit that I have never had the pie crust touch. I guess I'm lazy, as my specialties are crisps...my blueberry/peach crisp recipe even won me a bucket of free blueberries.

Here's to a health-filled rest of the school year!
