Pie in the Sky
Well, not really. Pie on the table here today.
Can you believe it?
After my last post was about healthy eating?
I did take it seriously, friends, and printed out every one of your comments.
So many good ideas there--thank you!
But today is Father's Day,
and R.H.'s request was coconut cream pie.
That's our wedding china there,
Copeland-Spode Blue Bird.
I had leftover pie dough so I made a pecan pie too.
But wait, what did our daughter-in-law bake for him for Father's Day?
A chocolate meringue pie!
R.H. is in pie heaven and he sampled the chocolate for lunch.
I think I will freeze the pecan for July 4th
as Christy and Bryan will be here and Bryan loves pecan pie.
Have I ever showed you our vintage pie rack?
We've had it for over 40 years
and one Thanksgiving we filled up all pie pans.
My favorite vintage pie pan is the top one, "Golden Boy."
It is what I used to call our firstborn when he was a toddler:
"You're my golden boy!"
Because he had bright blonde hair.
Here's the few silver pastry forks I have and they really are nice for eating pie.
It's been a nice Father's Day.
I actually succeeded in getting R.H. to rest for once.
Here's a picture we got from our youngest son today,
a picture of our granddaughters!
Happy Father's Day!
These orange double day lilies were here when we bought the house,
planted on one side of the house.
Don't they look pretty with the Queen Anne's Lace?
