The Changes

So there have been some changes put in place. I've got the Twitter thing going- I'll give it a solid month to determine if it stays or goes. We've got lurkers revealing themselves by comment or e-mail. And that leaves one small detail- the header. It was once pointed out to me that a reader had yet to see any pie on my blog so why the reference to pie in the header? I don't have a good answer. I love pie. And pie is homey and comforting. And if I was the truly domestic sort, I'd probably have pie readily available to offer to any guests who came by seeking advice, friendship, laughs. And since those are the things I feel like I'm putting out there- I figure the virtual pie was a good reference. But my reader was right. There has been a significant lack of pie on this blog. And I am willing to do what it takes to make that change. I am willing to sacrifice for my readers. I will keep the heading as is and I will make an effort to include more pie- starting today. This is a strawberry-rhubarb pie purchased by Christy at our local Farmers' Market this past weekend. It came from Lisa's Pie Shop in Atlanta, IN. I have to start off by admitting that I am not a fan of rhubarb. And this pie didn't change my opinions on that. But the pie was great- even with the rhubarb. So I will be making a point to purchase pie from Lisa- it just won't involve rhubarb. Peach? You bet! Banana cream? Absolutely! Butterscotch? You know it! Rhubarb? No way! Sorry the pics are blurry- back to that dratty old 2 megapixel camera phone (for now). Isn't it pretty? It's hard to see- but the crust has a strawberry on it and says "Rhubarb." Cute!

How can you malign rhubarb? Not only is it delicious, it comes with all sorts of warm fuzzy memories of meals eaten at Grandma's place during childhood! Oh, hang on, that's just me isn't it?

Actually, fruit pies really don't do it for me, pastry to filling ratio always seems too high (deep dish apple pie I make an exception for). Meat pies on the other hand...mmmm, steak and kidney, beef and mushroom, steak and onion..nom nom nom :-)

Cool! I really like your header, so I'm glad you decided to keep it. Plus, actual pie. Everyone's a winner!

Great, now I have to add pie to my shopping list tomorrow. If it wasn't so late (and I wasn't feeling so lazy) I would totally go out right now and get some pie. Rhubarb even, but that's just me.

Mmm Pie… I'll have to make that one of my topics for my Friday's Feast.

I took the plunge and signed up for twitter (even though I don't have a cell-phone yet). Unfortunately there is someone in Sweden who has cajoh, so I had to add an extra c in front. So sad.

I love pie. Almost every kind of pie. Great. Now all I can think of is pie. I wish I had a pie.
