Mmm Pie!

Check out this delicious pie I helped Beren and Maggie make for Father’s Day!

We wanted to make blueberry pie, but the store was out of fresh blueberries.  So we got fresh strawberries and frozen blueberries.  I think the kids consumed at least half the berries while we were preparing the pie.  That is why the pie has the flat, slightly squished look to it.   While baking the berry pie, I was reminded of a song from my childhood, from the Chasing the White Woolly Cat album (we had it on cassette!).  I forget most things about the song except the refrain:

Mmmmberry pie!  Mmmmberry pie!  Put it in the oven and it comes out hot!

Actually, the whole song might just be an enthusiastic young man repeating that over and over to a strong beat.  And now that I think about it, his emphatic love for “mmmmberry pie” could definitely be kind of perverted.  Hmmmm…  Let’s get back to talking about Father’s Day, shall we?

The pie was really good and both kids happily told Bert that they made the pie.  I was pleased with how quickly Beren learned to make a lattice top crust.  There are plenty of adults who can’t do that!  I think Bert was really tickled that we would go to so much trouble to make him a pie (and the remote control helicopter made his day too).  I hope all the daddies had a good day!

    PS – The berries also made me think of one of the kids’ favorite books, Jamberry, by Bruce Degen. We read it yesterday and it’s an awesome book with original artwork.
