Somehow this past week got away from me before I could tell you about this delicious pie! Week 29. It was a REALLY good one. I got to taste it, and it’s one of my favorites so far. If you like a little tart and a little sweet this will be right up your alley. It’s called a Blue Goose Pie, and the filling is made up of blueberries and gooseberries. So, so good.

The lucky recipient of this pie was my sweet Grandma! She had a birthday on Thursday, and turned the big 9-2! Of course we threw a little party – the whole family got together for some good BBQ, and then we had some fun on the slip ‘n slide. Well, to be honest, only those of us 6 years old and younger enjoyed the slip ‘n slide. The rest of us were spectators. We told Grandma she was welcome to join in, but she politely declined. It was a fun night of celebrating someone near and dear to all of our hearts! Happy Birthday, Grandma!
