I love to make pie. I love to see the faces of people who eat pie. It’s so wonderful and fulfilling to produce a baked good that gives others such joy! I had a brilliant – NOT! – idea to make and sell pies. I made many at Thanksgiving and reaped in the money. But each time I do that I am constantly thinking, “What, are you crazy?” It’s a lot of work and I put love and creativity into each one. I’m not so sure it’s worth it as a very small home business. I suppose if I had a commercial kitchen and people who loved to make pie as I do we could have a team thing going and really do well. Not so sure I want to do that. So, I will make pies whenever the demand for or the orders come to me. No problem.
So in 2 days I will be in a car with my husband and son and daughter and their daughter (a 2 year old) on a journey to the east coast. We will stay with our other son and family and I will make them a pie! And we will eat that pie! And we will enjoy that pie! And I will go to the beach and rest and contemplate about that pie and all the joy it brought people and I will be at peace (at piece).
This one is Strawberry Rhubarb. One of my most favorite!
