Pie is My Love Language

So, I whipped up a little something - just for you.

It's true, I had some help of the double trouble half-pint variety.

And yes, we did have a taste or two...because we were the chefs, and chefs have to make sure the food they make isn't yucky.

At least, that's what I was told.

By my four year old.

So, let's celebrate!

Because the walls are done in Silas's room. Not the floors or anything else, but the little dude has some fantastic walls to come home to.

Because I spent $61.87 on groceries tonight and I think I'm finally at peace with the $60-$70 range. Possibly.

Because I still haven't made that danged chicken artichoke pizza. But I plan to - soon.

Because you're all in big, huge trouble for dissing on my beets. (That's right, beet-haters. No whipped cream for you.)

Because I really just can't hold a grudge. Come on over, my folate-deficient friends. Whipped cream - on the house. Courtesy of me and Dwight Shrute.

Because my baby has a cold - and sprinkles are a known homeopathic remedy for the sniffles.

Because today is Monday. And you know what that means.

  1. Shannan,
    You crack me up! I love a good out-loud giggle that makes my family say "What are you looking at?" So, your blog was read aloud tonight. Emmaly didn't see the humor...sorry.

    Yummy pie. I need to find some chocolate in the house. And I am not one of your folate-deficient friends. Bring on the pickled beets!

  7. I often find myself laughing out loud when I read these posts too. My hubby now knows what I'm reading when I do. He comes over and sees what's so funny. And then laughs too. :)

  10. Sprinkles are yummy...

    you want to know what is funny!! I am not a beet lover...

    and not a whipped cream lover at all...so I can do without...

    Sometimes I wonder...am I the only one who doesn't like it?

    Anyway ~ looks super yummy!!!

  11. Yum. Yum. and Yum. Bachelor lover you are. I am running to go watch "How I met your mother."
    Love that show. Bachelor Bob Guiney ruined the Bachelor for me. I used to love it. He is the reason why I broke up with that show. Of course, I keep up with the basics of that show by reading all about it in my phd studies of US Weekly.I must stay current.

  26. i agree with the above comment "Bachelor! ? For the love of Pete...", come on girl...

    hey, you're such a nice mom, making those cute pies. i would make some pudding and slap it in a bowl & say "there you go!". obviously, i am not all about presentation at my house:)

    and the $60 grocery bill...i need to understand that. when i go in to the store with an "only the absolute necessities" list, i'm lucky to get out of there for $60. and that's just food, mind you. so you need to fill me in on your secret!

  27. Oh those are so cute! I wish you were my mom:)

  30. I have been thinking about making a pie soon. I got these great meyer lemons at store yesterday, and am thinking about a lemon cream pie... very Waitress!
    Can't wait to see Silas' room!!

  31. pie,pie,PIE!!! It IS the language of love--at least at our house. Everyone gets his/her favorite birthday PIE! A flaky light lard crust was one of the first things I ever learned to bake. It's unfortunate fat old lard has been nixed...I miss it...
    and you know, Doc, sprinkles ARE a cure-all.
