You guys, my keys are still lost but WHO CARES! We have waffles! And not just any waffles, but my new favorites. Rye. Can we please talk about how obsessed I am with all these rye. Even mentioning this right now makes me crave a pastrami sandwich and a cel-ray soda. My love of rye is reeeaaal. I like my rye bread with lots of caraway seeds, by the way.

This post should probably be titled “How to make a pie in a hour and a half” OR “How to look in your fridge and make a pie,” or maybe “How to make a pie when you don’t have your shit together.” All of these would be more accurate than the current: “Mixed Berry Pie.”

Teri and I made a whole pie appear in a hour and a half. That’s kind of impressive, no? I didn’t really even think that was possible. And it barely was. Can I be honest? This pie was the most make-shift, Sandra Lee, pie of a situation I’ve ever baked up. If you, too, wanna do this, I have some pie confessions/secrets to share…
