A little pre-holiday baking...

Sassy announced to me this morning, "Mom, I would like to make a recipe book, then I would like to use the recipe book to make a pie."

Mmmmmm....I am all about the pie.

"What kind of pie, Sassy?"

"Weeelllll, I would like to start with bananas and peaches, then add 2 cups of water, 3 cups of milk, 4 cups of flour, and 5 cups of sugar. And mix it up really well [this accompanied by frantic mixing motion] and put it in the oven, bake it for ninedyleven minutes, and it will be so, so good!"

"Um. How about if we use a recipe from one of my books for the crust, then put the fruit in after?"

"No. That's not how it works."

"Okay then, how about if we make apple?"






"Shoo-fly?" She actually gives this one some thought.


"You know, Daddy's favorite pie in the world is pumpkin. Want to make him a pumpkin pie?"

"Mommy! I have a great idea! How about if we make Daddy a pumpkin pie???? He'll be so, SO happy and he'll say, SASSY! YOU MADE ME A PIE, WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!!!"

"So not the first pie then? Pumpkin pie instead?"

"Yeah, I like my pumpkin pie idea better."

Yeah, me too.
