My little brother, Burt, had his 43rd birthday and I didn’t have a clue what to get him. He is a very practical guy and has just about everything he needs and wants. So, during our lunch I gave him his card and told him that I was going to bake him a pie a month for one year. He loves pies and I didn’t know if he would take me up on it or not. I’m not a pie baker, but….I would love to be. This is my big opportunity to give it a whirl.
He went for it and requested a Coconut Cream Pie delivered in his man cave for the big football game on Monday night.
I have never made a Coconut Cream Pie, so I was worried. Especially, on the meringue part of the pie.
I did it….and he said he loved it. He gave it a 10. (It’s a little scorched, I rescued it just in time!)
This is Burt and I when I was a teen…..he was always by my side. In this picture I was heading off to camp and I hated leaving him. (even though I seem to be smiling pretty big. 🙂 ) The picture below is at Christmas last year.
