"I want to have an old fashioned Pie Party." Said Ellen.
"What's a pie party?" I said. Ellen looked at me as if I were daft.
"It's where everyone brings pies and we eat them," she replied.
No arguments here. Of course, I already had the old fashioned part figured out. That meant costumes. Yes.
Apple pies, crumble pies, chocolate and blueberry and quiche pies - I personally made four pumpkin, three peach blueberry, and two chicken pies. I didn't realize that I needed stress relief till I started rolling out those pastries... once I got started, they just sort of kept on going. It's balm to my soul, rolling out pie dough.
Dressing up, friends, pies... and most special of all, celebrating one gorgeous and ridiculously talented girl. Ellen, I'm so thankful for you.
Let's do this more often.
