Don't Hate Me For What Is About To Happen In Your Mouth

source

Brett and I have been watching a lot of Pushing Daisies these last few days when the stars have aligned and both kids have taken long naps AT THE SAME TIME. (Noted: This is when I should've been cleaning.) The result has been an overwhelming urge for a piece of pie. Or a pie sampler.

So, I told Brett that I wanted him to take me to a pie shop for my birthday and he agreed it was better than going bowling, which was my first suggestion. We have a bowling joke but it's only funny to us.

We plan on going to see Eat, Pray, Love before we enjoy our pie because I finally finished the book this weekend and the first third is all about indulging in delicious foods. For those who have and will ask, I enjoyed the book. It was an indulgence in itself.

Speaking of indulgences...

I love food with a sense of humor.
If today was the first day of your new diet, I apologize.
xoxo,
Rachel

LOVE Pushing Daisies. So sad it was cancelled.

I did NOT love Eat, Pray, Love. It was super slow moving. I will say, though, that I don't have the connection that reading the novel might have provided. All I can say is that as a standalone movie...no bueno! After you see it, you must report back to say whether it was good or not...maybe I just reallly need to read the book to 'get it'.

I made the bakerella "pie pops" a few weeks ago. They were SUPER easy and delicious. You should totally go for it! OR have Brett make them for you :)

Haha that Mac pie is awesome! and the lollipop ones! I've been wondering if that book is any good, I see it in the hands of a lot of people around here. The movie looks like fun!

My Husband and I watched Pushing Daisies religiously!! We loved it, then it was cancelled!! We were so sad!! They said that all of the different "sets" cost them too much money!!:( Anyway enjoy Eat..! Book was good, have not watched the movie yet! Hugs

Sara said...

Pushing Daisies is an AWESOME show! Everything Chuck wears is breath taking! I love the humor of it all!

The movie Waitress also makes you want pie MAJOR.

Have a great birthday night! (& enjoy the pie!)

Luckily this was not the first day of my diet...I've been dieting for almost 9 months now so this wasn't TOO much torture. But holy smokes that all looks so good. I shall get some pie on my cheat day Saturday. :) And those pie pops are adorable!! So clever.

Tanya M said...

It wasn't the first day, it was the fifth! Big difference, right? It's not a diet, I'm just staying away from sugar for 30 days. I have been eating way too much of it, and my addiction needs to calm down. :) I was ispired by Josephine on Simple Lovely.

Michelle said...

OMG!!! PIE POPS!!! DO WANT!!!! I've got a bunch of extra apples, perhaps I should make some cup pies ;D

skunkboycreatures said...

Johnny and I had to take a break from Pushing Daisies. I'm not joking when I say we were going through 2 pies a week. Pies + pregnancy = one big mama!

Oh, I love pie! So much better than cake.

Kirsten W. said...

Pushing Daisies is the sweetest! I still can't believe it got cancelled. So glad that I just baked some peach crumble bars so that I can go eat a piece after seeing all these yummy photos!

I loved the book Eat Pray Love, too. I think the movie will be disappointing, so I'll probably wait for it on dvd. Movie + Pie sure sounds like a fun birthday date, tho!

cococricketsmama said...

Nichole said...

I wanted to spread the word about a friend's unborn baby that needs a lot of prayers. You can read more about it at my blog, and we are also do a little fundraiser for the family.

That pie looks so delicious. I need to find some blackberry pies sometime soon.
I really enjoyed Eat Pray Love. So many pretty scenes.

I love it too! The styling, the colors, and the ridiculous plots are all captivating.
