I am participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to the co-authors of Two Writing Teachers for creating this supportive community.
Act One – The Conversation
Thursday is Pi Day. What kind would you like this year? Lemon meringue?
Hmmmm…how about peach?
OK. But fresh peaches might be hard to find this time of year. How about blueberry?
Act Two – The Preparation
After a quick stop at the grocery store yesterday, I had what I needed – blueberries, a lemon, and a package of refrigerated pie crusts. I learned a long time ago that while I love making pies, crusts are not my strong suit. Pillsbury’s are the best, in my opinion. Today I carefully washed the blueberries. The recipe I had called for six cups. The blueberries I had were measured in ounces.
“Siri, how many ounces are in six cups?” The answer came quickly. Good, I had plenty.
I measured and mixed, scooped and scraped, laced and latticed.
Almost an hour later…
Act Three – The Finished Product
Still waiting for THE END.
