Just when we thought that our plate was full in life, God dished us up some dessert!

What was I thinking?

Look what I have to look forward to.

Before I begin....let me tell you that I do enjoy baking and cooking. I just don't have time. I also don't like to waste money when I don't have to. So, remember that whole pie in the face thing? I couldn't see going out and buying a pie for $10 or anything like that. I found a crust in the fridge to bake, had some vanilla pudding, a can of pumpkin puree and whipped cream. PERFECT fixings for pie. Right?

Well, they mix up well to taste delicious, but I can't imagine how far it will go up my nose and across the floor. It turned to soup!!!!! Practically. Renee was kind enough to share with me to hold my nose because "you won't believe how far it will go up your nose." Thanks Renee from the bottom of my heart AND my soft palette, nasopharynx, esophagus and trachea.

Do I stand in the shower so as to help with the clean up? I suppose I just go outside. It's been rainy. Well, no harm, that should help with the clean up I guess.

Here you can see Lizzy taking the pleasure in following my lame directions for pie making. Amanda said that she took a  mental note to never get this recipe from me. Wise decision Amanda. I did try to stick with the season though. Gotta give me some credit.

Aren't they the nastiest looking crusts you've ever seen. I think the dough was old. It tastes good. We ate the other soup, I mean pie.

I guess the PIEING will have to happen tonight. Oh boy....I can't wait.

What I really can't wait for is the next two up.....and then the next..... It's a good line-up.

Wish me luck...but most of all...keep DONATING to the Burlingham family (CLICK HERE) and keep giving yourself a chance to win an iPad2, Nook, Kindle and more. Better idea....keep donating to give Andriy a chance to get home to his family and FEEL the love.


  1. I can't wait.... :) Lizzy, take LOTS of pictures!

  2. Well.. if I were taking a pie in the face... and I would if it meant bringing an orphan home.. I think I'd stick some cotton balls up my nose first. Just sayin' :) Can't wait to see the pics!!!!!!

  3. Hey wait a minute, I'm one of the next two up!! LOL Honestly, I have never wanted pie in my face so badly :) Waiting for those pics.... hehehe
