Pie in the sky

birthday pie
Two weeks ago I had a transcendent experience. It involved eating a whole blackberry rhubarb pie in one glup. Ok, it was several glups. Spread out over the course of a weekend. Regardless.

A word to the wise. Eat with caution if said pie is from the Blue Stove. It will cause you to become disinterested in all other types of food. I was recently caught pushing dinner around my plate with a fork while pouting and saying "All i really want to be eating is pie." Don't let this happen to you, as it is not becoming behavior from a girl over the age of 7.

I'll be adding you to the blogroll on my blog, where I celebrate and share examples of everyday beauty. That's exactly what you're doing - plus serving dessert! Awesome. :)

  2. I think eating dessert first is an excellent policy. BTW, I'm pretty sure rhubarb is a hallucinogenic.

  4. Yess! Matthew's back!

    My mom would call that a backwards dinner, a practice we greatly enjoyed as kids. These days however, I've been favoring the strictly dessert style of dinner.

  9. Oh my word.
    Blackberry Rhubarb pie sounds absurdly lovely.
    I shall have to get the recipie, won't I?

    In fact, I do beleive we have some rhubarb plant growing wild in our backyard. Father calls it a nuisance, but I think the plants themselves look quite charming.

    Have you any rhubarb in your backyard?

  16. I have never tried,blackberry and rhubarb, it sounds very sensual and slightly tangy, longing to try, can't believe I never thought to put two British classics together. Got to give it a go, its no wonder you ate the whole pie! I have a som who is 13 on Monday the 10th of August who's very favoutite desery is apple pie, i must make him this. Was the base soggy? Or did it just have a top crust?

  17. Why do we really eat dinner? To have pie afterward!

  18. Some say eat dessert first, and I agree; it sweetens the rest of your evening...I ate a whole chocolate cake once, and no one ever knew it was even made. I did feel guilty, but with a smile on my face as I walked a few extra miles...

  23. There's nothing like pie for dessert to finish a good meal.

  24. yum. We usually pick a mess of wild blackberries that I make pies and jam with, but we haven't had the chance this summer (boo!). That pie inspires me to make a trip out there to see if there enough left for even just one pie...

  25. I just discovered you blog this Friday morning. I was delighted to read. I loved the story of the pie....how true it is in all areas of life...self indulgence....will cause us to push back those things that are "better" for us.
    Enjoyed tremendously

  30. I'm new to blogging...just discovered yours. I love the pictures and the pie sounds lovely. I have lots of blackberries growing on my property. I usually spend a day with my sister making jam etc. Will have to make a pie for the just the two of us...

  31. Aw man...now I want pie. I think it's perfectly respectable to only want to eat pie. :)

  32. Blackberries are so delicious! Your pie looks to die for.

  33. You've got a lovely blog!
    And the sight of that pie makes me terribly hungry for my grandma's pies! Too bad I'm 3000 miles away! hehe

  35. You inspired me to ride my rickety old bike to the beach, to go on a treasure hunt for blackberries.
    With arms and legs scratched, i gathered enough for the prize.... Enough for a pie.

    Heavenly with raspberry ice cream.
    YUM!!!!

  36. Its tough to say, but I am a bit of a pie "junkie." I can't help it, I have a deep and dark weekness for it. My boyfriend thinks I need help, but he doesn't understand!

    Thanks for making me laugh today!

  39. Here comes an Economic Theory, namely "The Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility". It says that continuous consumption of a product will makes your satisfaction of consuming any single addition of the product unit diminish. Put it simple, you will throw up if you eat an extra of your most-favorite-food-in-the-whole-world when you're already full. Anyway, nice blog u have there....
