We used to entertain alot, especially in the summer using the deck and fire pit. The last couple of years, not so much. Not for any particular reason. The timing didn’t work out or just didn’t feel like it. A week ago, DH and I were eating supper and decided it was time.
I shot out an email to a bunch of people from church saying last night was it. We had a great turnout (38 total) and served BBQ pork. We provided the meat, beverage and table service.
Everybody brought a dish to pass which makes the work for an event like this so much less. These are pies I made(sorry I forgot to take a picture until they were dug into). I saw a picture online and thought it would be a fun “fourth” thing to do. One was strawberry and the other cherry with a mixture of blueberries and blackberries in quadrant with the stars. They were actually pretty easy other than I tried a new pie crust recipe. Big mistake, it didn’t want to hold together. I should have stuck with the ol’ tried and true.
Placing it ever so gently in the carton.
Three or four were able to do it without breaking the egg.
Myself? I didn’t even attempt it as patience is definitely not one of my stronger qualities.
Hope you had a great holiday weekend as well!
