PIE vs Harry Potter.
Made from scratch key lime pie in which we tested out two different recipes… versus the new Harry Potter book.
Pie made with some absolutely lovely people who are wonderful people… versus the new Harry Potter book
Pie with people who live in the city versus my pre-paid Harry Potter book out in the suburbs at least 40 minutes away.
what do you think happened?
I totally managed to do both!
There was socializing and talking and baking – with an extra trip to round up enough ingredients for the *two* batches instead of the single one originally planned. We found that the Nigella Lawson one was bizarrely fluffy and that we probably liked the simple recipe printed on the bag of key limes best, but we are reserving final judgment until the pies have had a chance to cool and set in the refrigerator.
Because we ate the pies warm!
Pies came out of the oven about 11:20ish.
There was tasty sampling that was reasonably leisurely so as to fully judge the pies’ merits.
And then there was freakishly fast driving. And I did not get a speeding ticket even though I totally deserved one.
Got to the bookstore at 12:10 to a bunch of people leaving – but there were still a bunch of people buying. My pre-paid receipt was not in the special box, so manager-type person was called over and a list was checked – and I walked out with a copy at 12:20.
And now I need to calm down a bit before getting into the serious business of reading.
