Nestle Kitchens is holding a pie contest over on facebook. A pie contest got my attention right away because as you know, I love pie. It doesn't take a lot of motivation to get me in the kitchen especially when the outcome is pie. Pies get my family's attention quicker than any other dessert and this was no exception.
I've probably told this story before but in case you missed it, here is my favorite pie story. When my oldest son was in first grade his teacher had each kid draw a picture and write a sentance including the phrase, "My mom...." describing what we mothers do. The teacher took all of the pages and made a book for the each kid in the class to read. Most kids said that their Mom worked really hard, or was always cleaning, or that their Mom would sing songs, but not my kid. My son's page went something like this. "My Mom sits on the couch and watches movies and eats leftover pie." The other mothers found it quite amusing. Pretty funny what kids say about their parents. I know I told some doozies that we still laugh about today.
