Did you ever put thyme in pie?
If you haven't, consider putting it in blueberry pie now that summer is here.
Here's the link to Southern Living's Thyme-Scented Blueberry Pie.
I added a cup of frozen cranberries to the recipe because I didn't have nearly enough of the
RH said it was the best blueberry pie I'd ever made, but maybe that had something to do with the crust. The recipe calls for refrigerated crusts, which I've been known to use, but I had been wanting to make a crust with vodka so tried it.
Oh, my word, the vodka does make it so tender!
Recipe here from Cook's Illustrated.
The recipe called for the crust to be made in a food processor. I had never done this but I bet many of you have. I am directions-challenged but read the recipe over and over and finally did it.
You can't possibly know how proud of myself I was to do this instead of using my trusty old pastry blender.
I'll tell you one other thing I did last week for the first time in over a year--I drove myself to the grocery store and shopped alone, carried in the groceries alone when I got back home.
And I was so proud of myself! You see, part of what I've been doing the two months I was on my blogging break was going to physical therapy two times a week, three times a week the first month.
I've had bad knee pain since January and was diagnosed with patella femoral pain syndrome, similar to runner's knee. The therapist also discovered I had tibialis anterior tendonitis.
Since I had felt this winter that I was soon going to need a walker to get about, I have been faithful to my PT appointments and doing the exercises at home. And next week, God willing, after almost three months, I will be finished with PT but of course must continue the exercises at home--if I know what's good for me.
So that, combined with my computer being down for three weeks, made it easy for me to almost drop out of blogging.
But a blogger I am and so to blogging I returned in my last post. Just as once again driving gave me a renewed sense of independence, so blogging gives me that indefinable unexplainable feeling of accomplishment too.
Those of you who blog or are on Instagram, etc., do you feel this way too?
No one may really care what we had for supper except ourselves, but isn't it fun to share?
The organic vegetables above went into Jacob's Lentil Stew, recipe here. I also added a couple of turnips to it as we really like the tang they add to vegetable soups.
Thank you for reading my rambling supper post. What are you having for supper?
Here is supper. It smells good.
It looks good. It tastes good.
It is good.
All good things come from You.
