(Sometimes little afternoons just write themselves into brightly-colored pleasing blog posts. This is one of those afternoons, and of course, it’s a SHAMELESS PHOTO POST!)
Honestly, in life, I think all it really takes is a little commitment to character and a smidge of red lipstick to make everything grand. So, when my lovely girlfriends and I decided to devote an afternoon to making pies, we couldn’t leave any details to make the event perfect out.
1950s Housewife attire? Check.
Vinyl records and sweet tea in fancy glasses? Check.
Apple cinnamon, key lime, cherry and pecan? Check.
Baking in heels? A nearly-almost check.
One delicious day? Most definite check.
Serious question, internet–is there anything greater and more loving on this earth than pie? I could ramble on about how much a good crust is a gift from God or how on a perfect pie, each bite is like giving your mouth a warm just-what-I-needed-hug, but I’ll suffice it to say that if you don’t love pie, you’ve been doing it wrong.
Mourn the loss of a great tv show by watching Pushing Daisies and crave a slice of heaven.
Call up your grandmother and ask for a great recipe.
Or you know, if you play your cards right, time travel on back to 1955 and these fabulous housewives will make you one! Just, please…don’t call us desperate.
