Happy Birthday Mom!


I love my mom~ I love that I get to see her almost every day~ I love that we like so many of the same things ~ I love that my kids love her

I made my first strawberry pie ever from scratch for her birthday. Yum!!
It's so easy. Here's the recipe.

Ingredients:
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 package strawberry flavored jello, 4-serving size
1 cup water
2 pints strawberries, hulled
1 9-inch baked pie shells, cooled

Preparation:
Cook sugar, cornstarch, jello and water until thick; cool. Place whole berries the baked pie shell. Pour sauce over berries and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Serve with whipped cream or whipped topping.

Then in the mail came two new books by Elsie and Ali. *Love* these books! They are chock full of inspiration. Such different styles, but I get so much from each of them. Love their attitude!
