blueberry pi

My husband recently celebrated his 10pi birthday—that is, the day he turned 31.4159265. . . by making himself a pie. My jeans and I are thankful he didn't make ten. He even made his own crust for the first time, this one from Cook's Illustrated. The secret ingredient is vodka, which adds liquid to the dough, but then evaporates for a flakier crust. It was thick, sturdy, flaky, buttery, and really yummy.

I love that he bakes pies. I think the secret to a good marriage is balance. A husband and wife need to balance each other—in personality, in temperament, in strengths and weaknesses.

He bakes pies. I bake cakes. We're the perfect match.

That crust looks really yummy. That's the only part of a pie I like.

I dont know if him celebrating that suprises me, or not. Given his super nerd shirt, it makes sense. Pie looks good though!

That's a good lookin' pie!
My brother swears by the vodka crust...I havent' used that one in awhile, but I'll have to try it again.

Happy Birthday to your hubby:)

What?! No 10pi party? Just one little pie?

love the photos... never heard of a pi party ;) By the way, the cameras you were looking to purchase are all great. I started with a Nikon D80 and then "upgraded" to Canon T1i - biggest difference is resolution available for cost. The lenses all average the same prices and the photos are crisp and color accurate with both systems.

Thanks everyone!

Jillaire—yes, one pie. We're not as ambitious as you. Just a quite little pi celebration. :)

Rachelle—Thanks for stopping by and your camera info. The amount of information out there is a bit overwhelming, and I'm still trying to wade through it. :)
