can't get enough pie!

well maybe i can. Today was national pie day. I had planned to go down to M2 Gallery and celebrate the evening with Max and Michael and a truckload of pie. Dumb me, I didn't realize they were going to be done with their festivities @2pm... I thought it STARTED at 2. Gordy made two of his awesome key-lime pies last night and today I made an Albanian meat pie called "Lakror" and another veggie pie that is a traditional recipe from the isle of Crete... called "Boureki". Both were freakin' delicious, unfortunately they were finished about 3 hours too late for their debut.

I've had my fill and I'm busting at the seams, a little bummed that I didn't realize beforehand that i should have had this stuff ready much earlier. Gordy said we could bring 'em down tomorrow, but I don't want to bring the guys leftovers :-(

At my request Gordy took some of the bounty of our private pie-fest over to the neighbor. I don't know what the heck he will think of the pies... hope he likes them.

Im feeling sorry for myself tonight.

Good Grief!! what were those two guys thinking? over at 2PM? outrageous!! everyone knows that pie day must last ALL DAY !!!!

Teleport a piece of each of those fine pies over here - a piece of pie a day late is OK by me ....

Sorry you missed the party - especially since you all went to so much trouble .....

Good morning Mom :-)

I've been outta the art loop too long... Those fellows never finished anything when it was still daylight.

Didn't turn on moderation... you got moderated?? Maybe it was a glitch in the blogger interface?

I wish I could TP you some pie!

Ooooohhhh pie!

Don't let it bother you mom! Everything that's not directly money or school related gets filed way back in the back of my brain these days, so I do the same kind of thing all the time.

You still continue to amaze me with your creative cooking.

Sorry you were feeling blue, it's hard during the doldrums of winter to keep a cheery outlook all the time.

Here's some positive reinforcement to cheer you up:

Your pergola idea is wonderful, and exactly what that spot needs!!

You are a very nice neighbor :)

Have a good day, hope you feel a little perkier.
