Pushing Daisies Pie Party!
For a long time, I’ve had a really difficult time sharing any part of my personal life in my blog. I guess it’s because I’m so competitive and perfectionist…I don’t want anyone (including myself) comparing my life to everyone else’s. But that’s not the point, is it…
So, for the benefit of you (dear seven readers), I’m going to change that. Stories are stories…and as the Henry Van Dyke saying goes, “The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.”
So hello. This is me. MJ. The face behind all of the stoic and scholastic attempts at art and poetry (the food kind):
Here is also a picture of me after a trail race at Cuyohoga Valley National Park. That’s kind of an important part of me, too – I really love food and books and poetry and things…but I also love adventure sports and being outside and winning races.
AND GUESS WHAT PEOPLE??
This Friday I’m hosting a Pushing Daisies Pie Party at my house. I’m so excited! We’re going to watch a bunch of episodes of Pushing Daisies and eat Tart Apple Pie with Gruyere baked into the crust…Chuck’s specialty. (No antidepressants baked into the crust…we’ve got dark chocolate for that!) And head over to The Kitchen for another recipe for Pear with Gruyere Cup Pies (Another Chuck specialty) by Blondie and Brownie (who I’m really starting to like because of their shared affinity with both Pushing Daisies and Good Cheese)
Hopefully I will remember to pull my camera out during the festivities and report back to you all. Also, I really want to tell you about the Hobbit Party I attended 2 days before my wedding.
Speaking of which! I want to tell you about my wedding too! Since the food wasn’t catered, I have some fun things to share about the adventure of catering your own wedding food.
One more thing. I’ve decided to blog on Sundays. That way I don’t get overwhelmed yet I also stay consistent. Of course, I may have a few in between (like this one!) if I get the itch.
That’s it! Go eat pie!
