....like making pie!!!! Pie Night 2011 was Wednesday evening! We had 19 pies to share with family and friends. I have pictures of all but 3 of them, so I'll mention those 3 first.
One of those was a Grasshopper pie for our friend, Chris, who contributed some brews for the evening's choice of beverages. One was a Key Lime pie that we made for Baby Amelia. And one of those was a Mississippi Mud Ice Cream Pie with a layer of vanilla ice cream, fudge vodka sauce, pecans and coffee ice cream - all for our friend, Rhea. This pic includes a pic of the bottle holding the fudge vodka sauce, but that's not really much to go on. I still have some of this sauce left that can be poured over ice cream with no pie, but I'm waiting for a special occasion to indulge. Cause this stuff is good...
Ok, so that accounts for 5 pies, 14 more to go. Let's get after it!
The next 3 pies were presented elevated on the table. See on Monday last week I had to replace my water heater, and 3 people were very helpful in making that replacement happen. So it can be said that if it was not for these 3 people, Pie Night 2011 might not have been. May I request a moment of silence in honor of these 3 please? Thank you.
Our highest honor goes to our friend, Brendan, who was the water heater installer extraordinaire! Here is a pic of his French Silk Pie. And yes, I did cut off a portion of the pie, but there's a better pic of it below. I need a new blog photographer, but more on that a little lower...And then we have my son-in-law, K's Oreo pie to the right. K was the water heater installation Project Manager/Contractor.
His pie? Oh, you want to know about his pie? He "shared" his pie with Alton Brown - the Coconut Cream with Macadamia Nut Crust. While he "shared" his pie honor with Alton, he didn't so much share his pie with my work associates the next day...he was quite cute when he asked if he could keep his pie and not send it to my office, so how could I say no?
