Came home last night from Jazz Alley
and Nelson and his new (girl)friend
had picked blackberries -- enough for a pie.
Last Christmas Reilly gave me THREE
pyrex pie excuses!
I believe there are few things on this planet
better than homemade blackberry pie
(add a pinch of cinnamon!) served warm
with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The 'pinch of cinnamon' came from my sister
Mary (thank-you, Mary!) who had brought
a b-berry pie over the night Princess Di
succumbed. We were sitting on my back steps
in the dark and warm evening, feasting,
when Mark came out and told us.
So now blackberry pie with a pinch
of cinnamon = Princess Dies.
Princess Di B-Berry Pi.
I don't have a Diana obsession!
Really. I do have a pie obsession,though.
Life is better with pie.


  1. well, did the pie pans get filled?????
    enquiring mind...

  2. Three pies!

  3. I've been obsessing about pie ever since I first read your post. Growing up, we considered it a food group. Now, I'm woefully out of practice. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. It still is a food group!
    (Along with chocolate
    and champagne.)
    Delighted to provide inspiration!
