But Pie goes with every weather.
In my neck of the woods the weather report started looking pretty intense this past week - Rain! Winds! Possible Flooding! I thought this could only mean one thing for sure,
(You never know just how much you love electricity till your power goes out.)
So last Thursday I came home from work, dog tired as usual, and said, "What's for dinner?"
"Tuna, and Pronto!" My cat replied.
So I opened up a can for him and opened up the fridge for me and stared at the various plastic containers filled with the various leftovers and thought what one thing could I make tonight that I would want to eat for the next three days if it was raining and blowing and dark, as in, no power.
The Freezer goddess whispered "pie."
So I opened up the freezer and said, "WHAT?"
And she said, "Pie?"
I reached in and oh my! I had forgotten I had an olallieberry pie from Linn's just waiting to be cooked. Oh my!
You must try this pie sometime. You wouldn't believe how good it is!
It doesn't come cheap. $9.50 a pie at your local supermarket, but a quality product is never cheap. And if you think you could make it from scratch cheaper or better, give it a go. With berries costing five bucks a half pint, I don't think so.
This pie weighs almost 4 pounds!
It's so good you don't even need a la mode, but if you're into saturated fat, don't let me stop you.
