I love sweets. Entirely too much. I made not one, but two desserts today. Like I need them.
First I made this yummy blueberry pie.
I love this stuff!
To make this you start with a buttload of clean blueberries. In case you're not familiar with a buttload, that's 4 cups.
Add one cup of water and one cup of blueberries in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
After it comes to a boil, add 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 3 tbsp corn starch.
(I like to mix the corn starch together with a little bit of warm water in a little container with a lid and shake the snot out of it to get rid of lumps before I add it to the blueberry mixture)
Let all this boil together while stirring about 1 1/2 minutes then remove from heat.
Add the remaining 3 cups of blueberries and stir it all up to get all the berries covered with the glaze.
At this point pour the berries into your pre-baked pie crust. (see that missing chunk out of my pie crust? That's because I really like to eat frozen raw pie dough.)
Place the pie in the fridge and let it get nice and chilled before serving with some whipped topping of your choice.
I think I'm going to take this pie to work tomorrow to say "sorry for being crabby for no particular reason, eat the pie and get over it."
Later in the day I decided to make the chocolate sheet cake with peanut butter frosting I found at My Tasty Treasures.
We really enjoyed that frosting! The girl discovered it makes a pretty good dip for pretzels!
Well, thanks for stopping by...I have to go check my blood sugar now.
