I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that numbers 2 and 5 have been getting the most attention. But they have. What can I say? I like to eat. On Saturday, I baked my first PIE! It was a momentous occasion. My dad's cousin Paul and his family were with us for the day (all the way from England, mind you) so we tried to make it the most American experience possible. Which meant that we had a barbecue. And for dessert we had my apple pie.
I have to say, I did not anticipate it taking so long to make the crust. First of all, what the H, frozen butter. Why you so hard to cut! I tried everything. Kitchen-aid did nothing. Potato smasher kind of worked. Forks and knives worked but took forever. Anyway. If you know of a way to incorporate a very key ingredient into my pie crusts that won't reduce me to tears, let me know.
Anyway. It turned out great, and I'll have to get over my pie-crust-frustration because I'm making two pies tomorrow and there are many more to come. So butter, you better watch your back. I will destroy you.
I'm so proud of myself.
Also, this music video. I feel really happy and content when I listen to this song. Oh how I love summer.
