There was this pie a few weeks ago I have been meaning to tell you about.
I wanted to share it with you, and tell you that despite scores of disastrous baking attempts, it seems that i can pull off a simple rhubarb pie, and yes i made the crust. my mom was a home economics teach for gosh sake.
Speaking of baking in the family, it was actually my grandfather who was the pie maker in the family, and come to think of it rhubarb was his favorite. he had to learn how to make a pie when my grandmother either couldn't or didn't feel like it anymore. anyway we made a few pies together in our time, and I guess I didn't forget how.
Those of you who've followed my occasional culinary pursuits may remember my disregard for weights and measures. thus i don't have a recipe for you. but i will tell you that my favorite pie crust uses half butter, half shortening and a bit of vinegar.
I'll also tell you that I've been experiencing occasional numbness in my arms and need to stop typing now.
