I have in my possession, 10 pints of fresh blueberries. Anyone have a super-terrific recipe for blueberry pie that is tried and true? I've got the ice cream maker in the freezer, waiting to be used for French vanilla ice cream to accompany said pie. MMMMM.

To Do
  • take houseplants outside for spring washing and sunning (don't forget the orchids in the master bath) done
  • pull out all large plants in side bed, lay down landscape stones to make walk path for the Mister's car
  • swap out flagstone bricks there with limestone bricks from backyard
  • move flagstone bricks to bolster up new retaining wall in new bed
  • return fountain bubbler to Home Depot, get more small landscape rocks - 1 bag should be enough
  • laundry
  • bake bread (freeze one)
  • make ice cream base by lunchtime for chilling
  • make blueberry pie by time kids are home from school
  • call Jennifer or she'll bitch and moan (ahh, what a fun friend)
  • find time to rock out with your cock out
  • get a cock done
  • prune asters

Anti-To Do List
  • surf the web
  • read comic books (what are you, twelve?)
  • sit and stare at the water in the fountain for a half hour
  • get caught up on the phone for long with Jennifer. Or Tiffany.
  • Murder transients in order to quiet the voices in my head
  • confess to previous murders
  • whore myself out for free compost

[tears of rapturous joy] BLUEBERRY PIE.

...Sadly, I do not have one. How lame is that? I have NO RECIPE for blueberry pie. I may have to turn in my woman-card.

Entrenous88--PLEASE SHARE you recipe with the world--the world being the folks who read the comments on this entry!

Entrenous is THE Pie Lady. She will deliver, I am sure of it!! (She's quite the accomplished pie baker.)

If I can get my fwoomp tube finished, I'll zoom you some pie and ice cream tonight.

Ok how do you make such a normal post into such AWESOMENESS????

Blueberry pie is the BEST pie on the PLANET. I have no recipe though. I'm an eater not a baker!

And your to-do list? "find time to rock out with your cock out/get a cock" AWESOMNESS!!!!

I'm ultra-jealous of your gardening it's like -13 F here with the wind chill factored in!

It's going to be in the low 70s today, so I want to give my poor, leggy, sun-starved plants a jump start. (And make sure I don't have any gnats, etc.)

I don't know how y'all do it up north. I'm such a baby when it comes to extreme cold.

HA! One of our Canadian National past times is to complain about the weather. Where I am we have days like this in the winter and then in July we have days where it is over 100 F plus a humidex! I much prefer July myself.

LOVE your Coreys icon too BTW.

I do not have a pie recipe sadly, but I do have the trailer for Big Willie's new movie.

I'm pretty sure Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly is the Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire pairing of our time.

HAHAHAHAHA. I love him so much. so much that I want him to stop making the same movie over and over. there, I said it.

Girl, you don't return calls! Shoot me an email when you have a spare minute and tell me how it went!

I know, I'm horrible! After my dinner meeting last night (which hey, kinda awkward because who knows if I'll be there in a few weeks?) I crashed as soon as I got home. Oy. I feel better today after recovering my near coma death.

Wotchu fink bout a phone call 2nite?
Feb. 28th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
YOU ARE HORRIBLE. My goodness, how do you LOOK at yourself in the mirror??? Phone call later, you bet! Call me about 8, 8:30? The rug rats'll be in bed by then, and there won't be any distractions.

HI LEE!! <3

I don't see Guitar Hero on either of those lists, missy.

*points to rockin' out with my cockin' out*

I'm extraordinarily jealous of your blueberry situation. They were never very good here last summer so I missed out on getting some last year.

And my pie recipe is at home where I'm not ::grimace::.
Feb. 28th, 2008 05:37 pm (UTC)
If you happen to find that, I would LOOOOOVE it.

*fwoomps you blueberrys, stat!*

My favorite blueberry pie recipe. It isn't a hot pie though, so maybe the ice cream is served separately.

1 pkg graham crackers
1/2 - 2/3 stick butter, melted
Brown Sugar

Crush graham crackers into crumbs. Add a touch of nutmeg and a pinch of brown sugar. Pour butter over crumbs, mix with fork. Press into a pie pan. Refrigerate.

1 pkg grape (purple) jello
1c boiling water
1c cold water
2T lemon juice
1c blueberries
1/4t almond extract
1 pkg (1/2 pint) whipping cream

Pour jello in boiling water, stir until dissolved. Add cold water and lemon juice. Remove 1c of mixture and set aside. Refrigerate until thick, like beaten egg whites. Fold in cream. Pour into graham cracker shell. Refrigerate. Add berries and extract to cup reserved. (If berries are frozen, do not refrigerate -- if they aren't, put in fridge.) When bottom is set, spread berry mixture on top. Refrigerate and do not serve for 2-3 hours.

Make sure that you don't let mixture set too much the first time, otherwise it won't form nicely. Same with the stuff you set aside.

Oooh! *bookmarks* I think this recipe will have to wait for a bit - I really have my heart set on a good ol' fashioned blueberry pie. (I've already made the pie crust, you see. Can't let it go to waste!)

Thank you for this - I can see this being fabulous come Memorial Day with whipped cream and sliced strawberries to garnish the top. *smacks lips*

Ah, you get so much done in a day! I'll take two of whatever you're having.
Feb. 28th, 2008 08:02 pm (UTC)
I am now so tired after reading that list that I am now going to do even less than I was originally planning.

And I am going to blame you.
Feb. 28th, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC)
Your to do list harkens Spring! Yay, it's gorgeous out this afternoon.
Feb. 28th, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Once you're finished you should have a blueberry to celebrate.
Feb. 28th, 2008 10:52 pm (UTC)
I made the one from the Joy of Cooking, iirc, this summer, and it was awesomecakes. Or is that awesomepie?
Feb. 28th, 2008 11:28 pm (UTC)
Not that you need more fruit, but if you have any rhubarb, or any cherries, toss either of those into the pie you might make. Really great combination.
Feb. 29th, 2008 04:52 am (UTC)
Not a pie recipe, but some LOLTheist humor that cracked me up and made me think "I gotta show Stoney!" ...

He works hard for his money

Wait, you saying there is a right way?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
