Can she bake a cherry pie?

Probably. She did ok with blueberries.

I'm not a pie girl. I love to bake, and I've made pies before, but not for a very long time, and never for Doug. I'll admit it right now, I used store-bought crust. {Note to Mom: Please don't tell Grandma!!!} I was pressed for time, and I had blueberries in the freezer that I'd purchased a few months ago when they were in season and on sale at my local grocery store.

Me - calling to Doug who was outside working on the patio: "Hey Doug, come see what I made you for your birthday..."

Doug - entering the house and taking a big whiff: "Mmmmmmm...something smells good!"

As he walked over to the stove I said, "It's blueberry."

Doug: "Blueberry pie? I love blueberry pie!"

I knew he'd say that. :o)

And then he noticed the design on the top and laughed that awesome belly laugh and told me that he loves me and gave me one of his big hugs that I love so much...

Happy birthday, Doug.
I love you too.

November Attitude of Gratitude:
* At the risk of being really really mushy, I'll just say that I'm so grateful to have a husband like Doug and leave it at that.

Happy birthday to my wonderful son-in-law! What a great way to honor him--his name in pie!!! A pie, by the way, that looks totally yummy! Your secret about the crust is safe with me but can you keep a secret, too??? Grandma uses those ready-made crusts, too and has for the past couple of years! xo
