Blueberry pie report

Okay, so we got started late.  Jillian finished the pie in time to put it
out to cool just as she was getting ready for bed.  Chilled in fridge all
Monday and Dad had it for dessert with dinner.  He got mileage out of that
fact at work as he 'had to get home and try the pie HIS daughter made
yesterday'.

Pie was good.  Thanks Wayne for the recipe.  It was easy enough for her to
do as well.  She was very grown, doing it all herself.....although she did
get a little burn off the oven door (touched a knuckle to it while putting
the pie in) because she refused ANY help.   Only complaint was the edges of
the pie crust got very dark (I forgot to cover it with foil, it's been TOO
long since I made any pies!).  Daddy loved it, baby girl was happy and life
was good.
Again, thanks, Wayne.

If I could only eat one more slice of pie before I die, blueberry
(warm) (with a leeetle scoop of really good vanilla ice cream) would be
it.  I'm thinkin' a blueberry pie will be just the thing for the 4th of
July.  I'll serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a single
raspberry or strawberry on top to complete the red, white and blue
effect.  Heeheeee!

OH yes, my family is twisted enough to make sure that they served all
of my favorite foods at my funeral reception!

I'm sure you know the joke, but:

My Mom made all her own arrangements! Told me what to serve - "Little
sandwiches, and some punch - not too sweet!" Even handed me her typed
obit, and specified which papers to run it in...

That's the joke I was referring to. Back in the fifties, that was a
Jewish joke.

My wife is twisted: she tells her friends that I'll be bringing a
date to her funeral.

A Middle aged couple had just finished meeting with their lawyer to
finalize estate, family trust, and personal wills. On the way home, as
they were driving quietly in their car, both were reflecting on their
lives and the future. The wife turns to her husband and says " Dear, if I
die before you, will you get remarried?"


The husband, after some reflection, and with both hands on the steering
wheel, responds while looking straight ahead, "Yes, I probably will
because I cannot see living the rest of my life alone." The wife then
responds in a huffy voice, "Well if you get remarried, will you still live
in the same house?"


The husband, after careful thought responded, "Yes I think so. I really
like that house and we have done a lot of remodelling to make it just the
way we wanted it." The wife, more visibly upset responds, "Well, if you
get remarried and live in our house, will you keep the same bedroom set?"
The husband, again after careful thought responded, "Yes, I really like
that bed. You know how solid it is, and how much we have enjoyed sleeping
in it together."


The wife, really upset now, says, "Well if you get remarried, and live in
our house, and sleep in our bed, will she use my golf clubs?" The husband,
without much thought responds, "Probably not............. She's left
handed."

When my MIL was terminal, but still had her faculties, she joked with my
SILs husband who has an ebay business to put my FIL on ebay to the highest
bidder.

Re: Blueberry pie report
I didn't read your original request till after fathers day was over.

How wonderful that your daughter made the Blueberry pie for her Dad!
Blueberry pie has been a favorite of my husband for years, Here, Santa even
gets blueberry pie and milk instead of the usual cookies on Christmas eve.
(we always told the kids that it helps keep his beard white)

My almost 40 year old made blueberry pie for her Dad too... and she was
thoughtful enough to alter the recipe and use "Splenda" instead of sugar...

Maybe your daughter has begun a tradition of many years of "Blueberry Pie"

Thanks, Rina.  Santa at my house gets beer and beef jerky.  The oldest was
told when he was little that Santa was overwhelmed with milk and cookies
.......sorta a tradition now. <vbg>

Yumm!  That sounds delicious.  It would make for a wonderful tradition too.

I make a Key Lime Pie with chocolate cookie crust for my FIL for Father's
Day each year.  Last week we went north for a visit... I took a bag of Key
Limes and made 2 pies for him.  YUMMM!!  I was distracted buy a few of the
goings on and discovered a delicious accident...  From now on I will be
squeezing one or two of the limes directly into the egg whites, prior to
whipping them for the meringue!  Don't know why I never thought to try it
before.  It gave the meringue a nice flavor lift.
