PIES GALORE

If your family and friends are like ours, 
everyone takes lots of photos, and prepares lots and lots of food through out the holidays.

Looking back--- what is one of my most fond moments, besides stuffing, loading and basting a 22 pound turkey and preparing enough stuffing to feed a battalion?

PIES

And I didn't BAKE a single one.
I remember pies the best because our daughter, Sarah, sent photos of her amazing pies she created. 
She has decided that her latest undertaking is to make every type of pie possible.  Pies and Photography a great combo.








It should be mentioned that Sarah is very petite, yet having an Asian style kitchen, even she can barely fit in.  Yet out of that tiny space with no dishwasher or disposal, comes a WEALTH of delicious foods.

All in our family loves creating tasty food.
Our son, Hunter, loves to bake cakes and pies.
His specialities are coconut cream pie and pecan pie.





My favorite, Hunter's Pecan Pie


Hmmm, I am not sure. I also ADORE Hunter's Coconut Cream.



These little monkeys are just working up their appetite for dessert!




And this little rascal, must haven eaten ALL of the BERRY PIE!

The only PIE claim I can make this year is sketching! Not nearly as appealing!!! 



Our entire family loves to cook...bake...and eat.

*****************************************
Our family is blessed. No one goes hungry, abundance is piled upon our plates: an embarrassment of riches.
All the more reason to donate to our favorite charities that help those who need a "hands-up."
In our local community we have over 1,000 children who do not get enough to eat on a daily basis. 

*******************************
These Vietnamese children are smiling, happy, content in their world.  But feeding and clothing them is very difficult.
It is like this in too many places all over the world.  

I am so grateful for the many organizations and charities and those who run them,  that give us the opportunity to donate and be a tiny part of feeding our brothers and sisters. 




I know that you join us in donating to local food banks, churches who serve others on a daily basis, any opportunity to share our bounty.

*****************************************************
Today, November 30th, is our daughter's birthday.  Her birth ushered in the Christmas and Hannukah Season.  
So tonight we have a family celebration, for which Hunter baked a luscious chocolate cake, smothered in raspberries.  We are rather
PIE-D-OUT!!!!!!

What amazing looking pies Sharon! I am sure they were enjoyed by all. Lovely sketch of pies too. I haven't visited for a while, so enjoyed a lovely catch up this evening. Your paintings are so wonderful, and I loved seeing your process. Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your wise and thoughtful words, and a reminder to give that do not have as much as we do. I do give to the food bank regularly, and donate to others when I can. It is time for me to do a bit more. Thank You.
