It reminded me of a custard pie, which is an all time favorite of mine. I have never made a custard pie before, but every time I happen to visit a diner, and there is homemade custard pie in the case, I have to have a slice!!!! Mmmmmm! This pie did not disappoint!!!!
After the pie devouring, we got our wellies on and went out back to pick fruit. Clairey was first to be ready to go.
Genny got the picker, and I got the wagon, and off we went. The kids were big helpers!
