Strawberry Pie

Frank's been on a baking kick with multiple variations of chocolate chip cookies. Also a pound cake from scratch. Most recently, he made a strawberry pie.

This is before baking...I didn't get an after picture. The outer crust was a little overdone...I'll have to show him the foil trick. The pie was delicious, though.

I do like his new hobby.

This reminds me of a first-grade story. One of my tasks with the first graders was to work with them on writing. One of their prompts was a picture of 3 kids at a pie-eating contest. They had to use describing words (adjectives). Most kids described relatively normal pies (sweet strawberry, tasty pumpkin, etc) but one boy was very imaginative and had lightening pie and rain pie!)

What kind of pie should Frank make next?

My family kvetches and moans about my lack of baking; why, FTLOG, do they not take up the hobby a la Frank?

Aunt Snow said...

Wow! Frank's doing great. I better get going with my pie challenge.

Peach please! I'm trying to figure out what to bake for our July 4 th picnic.

How about a strawberry-rhubarb pie? I could send you the rhubarb, and you could send me Frank.
