Last night I made a pie for uncle-former-boss’s birthday today. I think it was one of my top three pie making failures. Regular readers will recall that I screw up 4 out of every 5 pies I make.
Resist the urge to send me your fool-proof tips. I’ve tried everything. Pie making is my kryptonite. Sometimes.
This pie crust was a disaster and I patched together the bottom crust because who cares? It’s filled with pie. But I did a couple of tricks and was very patient and managed to make a decent looking top crust.
This morning I had to take my car back to Toyota (long story omitted but it was less than $100 and totally worth it) and got a ride to work. On the way, a car ran a red light and we had to slam on the brakes. My carefully wrapped and guarded pie slid out of my lap. I grabbed it but ended up with fingers in the pie.
It wasn’t ruined but it was pretty messed up.
Better the pie than me.
Definitely better the pie than you. It’s easy to fix the pie. Doll it up with some ice cream and who’s the wiser, eh?
I tried to resist the tip-giving but I couldn’t help it! I think the fruitless help from bystanders is all part of your pie karma.
It still looks yummy…I would kill for some pie right about now.
Better the pie than you, indeed!
What kind of pie is that, anyway?
Now I’m craving pie.
I’m glad you weren’t hurt, I’m glad your car repairs were cheap, and pie is pie. Pie is good. Doesn’t matter what it looks like.
Ugly pie is still tasty pie. 🙂
