Blueberry and Cherry Pie!!

And Key Lime as well!!

My wife and daughter went to see a flick-"The Waitress" maybe?? The storyline was about a waitress that made pies for the restaurant where she worked. They were so engrained with pie themes after watching the movie they stopped by the bakery and brought home 3 pies on their way home.

It's a really close race but I think the pies will be finished off in the following order:

Cherry
Blueberry
Key Lime

Cherry is my favorite and it is going very, very quickly.........Blueberry could very well make a push around midnight to catch up, though.

Sorry-no pics. The pies would not give us permission to take photos as they had really been worked over.

All three flavors, very nice. Key lime, served very cold, on a hot afternoon-mmmmmmmmmm!

Red Rider is making a peach pie right now, as we type. Made from the small white candy peaches in our backyard.

Later Baby, Later.

I had Rhubarb and Raspberry Pie in Whalen at the Root River in MN. Heated with ice-cream.
I biked 100 miles/day for a week and gained 5#.
Lots of the above pie.

Ooooh, baby, I just made my first peach pie in about 2 years. Absolutely delish! I found a source for fresh sour cherries, so I'ma thinkin' mebby cherry pie next. And of course more peach pie! Or nectarine, or blackberry or boysenberry or. . . !

I had my first Key Lime pie in twenty or thirty years on July 4th. I made a pig of myself and had two pieces. It was like what they say heroin is like -- instantly, I was addicted. Man that was good pie!

For a "chick flick" it was a good movie (besides, I'm a sensitive New-Age guy ). The pie theme was a big plus!

Key Lime RULES!!

Cherry and peach together make a wicked good pie. Peaches play very nicely with most berries too.

I have got to stop reading this thread.

I had a cherry & peach pie slice from the Grand Traverse Pie Company in Ann Arbor. It was delicious.

Yes they are. The Blueberries are in season here right now. I bought 3 20lb boxes yesterday from a blueberry farm and was quite the hero when I got home. Of course a nice fresh pie was made. It's all gone though.....................

I like anything with blueberries in it. All time favorite breakfast for me, is fresh blueberries on bran flakes with just the right amount of milk poured over top. Too bad they are in season for such a short time.
