Yay! Pie!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been making it's way through Facebook and plenty of folks have braved a bucket (or more) of frigid water in order meet the call. I took the "easy" way out and made a donation because that's what it's really all about anyway. But, last night my sister posted something that sounded an awful lot like another challenge... he he he!

She said, "I was inspired by my friend Nicole and decided to throw a blueberry pie in the oven before Dave came home from work today. Can't wait until it cools enough to taste! It has a cute little face with a crooked smile, don't ya think?"  Rachel thought I could simply put my over-abundance of blueberries into a fresh baked pastry, but alas! I have no blueberries this summer. Instead I took myself to the completely opposite corner of the yard and braved the vicious vines where blackberries grow. I picked enough berries to fill a smallish pie plate, maybe an 8" dish, and this afternoon, after my grandchildren had gone home, I whipped up a blackberry pie!

Perhaps you are gone for the weekend or just too busy to bake at the moment, but I am here to challenge a few of my friends to bake a pie of your own. I pick Wanda, Linda, Betsy, Brenda, and my sister Priscilla. Bake your pies, post a photo, and tag your friends!

    Your pie is beautiful..I've always thought you made the prettiest pies! Lovely! That needs to be featured in a magazine.

    Taylor, Lauren and Jeff were all tagged for the ALS ice bucket challenge so they taped their soakings Wednesday night while they were here. haha.

    I'd rather bake a pie. :)

    1. I passed my soaking on to Hannah. A donation seemed more appropriate for me.

      Ah, pie! There hasn't been a good game of blog tag in a while now. I thought we needed a new one. Happy baking!

      PS. Thanks. My momma did teach me a thing or two about pie making. She made a pretty pie too.

  4. Martha, I'm in ~ but it will be a "little pie" as I don't want the temptation of eating a whole normal size pie. Thinking apple, as it's what I have available. We have a unit inspection tomorrow (apt. living) so it will be Thursday or Friday.

    1. Little pies count, and so do pies that you bake and give away or feed to company and/or neighbors.
