Brilliant thinking, Gram. Less Prozac, MORE PIE!
I prefer Prozac
Did Val and Joan even have ice cream with their mother’s pies? Within their parents’ means, it was possible.
Where can I find some of that Apple, Peach, Pear pie?
There used be to some wild current bushes on our property which my mother mixed in the apple pie turned the apples purple.
One thing I hate about being here in Australia … missing all the fruits back home.
My tonic is sunsets. Also sunrises when I can get up early enough. …And writing software.
Also at that time fresh produce cost less than processed foods, not like it is now.
it was less expensive to make food from scratch than it was to buy pre-made food.
Can’t go wrong with that!
Especially on March 14th.
No pie for me: I like baked apples. I like thin flaky pastry. I don’t like cooked fruit getting my pastry soggy, and I don’t like crumbs in my baked apples. (I identify with Petey in “Cul de Sac”)
Love the backstory!
Question: What is your favorite type of pie? I’m partial to a certain type of sweet potato pie. It uses sweetened condensed milk in the recipe.
There is no better way to say “I love you” than to cook for someone.
Achatz Pie Co., in Michigan,has a great four berry pie.I think it came in second,in a nationwide contest ;)
Wished I could have a crusted flour pie, we at times use wheat flour, butter or shortening I cannot have. If I had a better metabolism then I could.
Has anyone read this backstory before? Where did Val and Joan grow up and why were they so poor? They’re Boomers, not from the Depression, right?
Holy mazoli!! I think she’s right!!
A local business makes fruit pies from their own (or at least very local) fruit. Their tag line is
Pie makes EVERYTHING better!
I agree whole heartedly!
“Less pills, more pie”. I can get with that!
Cut me a slice of that!

OK. I’ll see myself out now. Pie DOES sound good, though.
When my oldest was in 6th or 7th grade (He’s 27 now), they were made to keep a journal, to build their self esteem and emotional well being… … … Anyway, he got in trouble one week. All of the entries in hie journal were, “I like pie.” What is amazing is, he’s a well adjusted, hard working young man, without all of the “triggering” snowflake attributes of many of his peers, whom he mostly has little regard for.
We had apple and pear pies when we were stationed in Belgium, and my mom was always making pies. However, now, I have to make my own Rhubarb pie(I am the only one in the household that likes it), and I usually only make it for MY birthday and around Christmas. Of course, I do not tell my grandchildren when I make MY pies, therefore, I do not have to fight them, to get a piece of MY pies.
The Dave Ramsey Diet …. Beans and Rice, Rice and Beans
She is cruel to diabetics. lol
Great idea, but I’m 40 pounds overweight.
I LOVE Pie! First job out of home, I was 19 worked a restaurant that featured lots of different types of pie. For four years I had pie every working day sometimes twice a day and got to take some home too! Never got tired of it.
“Pie can’t compete with cake. Put candles in a cake, it’s a birthday cake. Put candles in a pie, and somebody’s drunk in the kitchen.” Jim Gaffigan
we have a weeping red mulberry by our front walk. my mom used to make strawberry-mulberry pie. she would put a clean sheet on the ground and shake the branches so the ripe fruit would fall. she taught me how to make pie and my husband claims that was the main reason he married me was for my cherry pie!
Wish I could afford enough space to have an orchard.
Yes; more pie!
