I Like Pie.

In honor of my out of town sister-in-law, I made pies yesterday.

She's actually the baker in the family, but she's left town and I needed pie. Or pies.

Two pies.

On the left is sugar cream and on the right, pecan.

Two pies.

In all honesty, I figured my neighbors would be more likely to accept my gift of ginourmous, newborn baby size zucchini if accompanied by a slice (or two) of pie.

I'm smart like that.


The main excitement of yesterday was the long awaited delivery of Giugni juice. Giugni juice comes from a sandwich place near Napa. That guy that I like so much was introduced to it by one of his students and now, thanks to her, we can not eat an un-giugni juiced sandwiched ever again.


I've tried making it on my own and it's just not the same.

Double curses.

But she's nice enough to snag some for us and now we have 5 beautiful bottles of it (and a bottle of port from her family winery) tucked away in the pantry.

Should last us until Christmas.

With everyone out of town, we're looking at a quiet weekend. A little gardening, a lotta jewelry orders, a little laundry, a lotta pie. Maybe a movie or two. Maybe some painting. Maybe just chillin'.




  1. Oh I love your blog. I have a houseful of boys too, 4 including the hubs. 5 if you count the dog. What are we thinking???

    Those pies look great, you can bring me zucchini any day. Come by my site and you'll find a great recipe for it. Now, I'm intrigued by this sandwich juice??? We need to talk! :)

    I'm your newest follower in the house from NFF! Hope you'll come over and stay a little while at our place!

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma, What's for Dinner

  2. I'm coming to your house for pie!!! :) So glad we could feature you on Friendly Friday this week.
