It’s time for Tuesday Tips and Tidbits!
This week I want to highlight a pie bird I received as a Christmas gift, and to ask for ideas on what pie to make with it!
I received a wonderful Christmas gift from my mother-in-law, a beautiful deep purple pie bird. It is amazing how one little gift can make you so happy. It was so sweet of her to get me such a thoughtful gift, and I also have my daughter to thank. A few months ago, my little girl and I were watching a Good Eats’ episode on apple pie. I mentioned how I would love to have a pie bird, and she remembered and told my mother-in-law. I was so touched that my sweet girl could be so thoughtful and that she really listens to me. She is only 7, so I was overwhelmed that she would have remembered. She is growing up so fast. I always look forward to my mother-in-law’s gifts anyway, because she always gets me the coolest kitchen tools and cookbooks. So, this was just wonderful all around!
The bird is ‘perched’ on my windowsill calling me to make a pie. I just can’t wait. If anyone has any great pie ideas, I would love to hear from you. I will be featuring the pie recipe later this month and hopefully I can use my pie bird to make one of your pies 🙂
