I happened upon an amazing deal for strawberries yesterday (8 lbs for $4) the first thought I had was... pie! A few years ago I was in a similar position and was not sure what to do with so many strawberries.
I browsed many of the cookbooks on the the shelf and found a recipe for pie that I just had to try. This one came from a fundraiser cookbook that I inherited from my grandmother. I made some minor tweeks in hopes of keeping it light :)
Pastry for a 2 crust pie (use your fav or mine... the frozen ones. I will figure out pastry one of these years)
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Splenda
2 tbsp Cornstarch
3 cups Sliced Fresh Strawberries
14 oz. pineapple (I used tidbits), drained very well.
Mix sugar, splenda and cornstarch together in a large bowl. Add strawberries and pineapple, mix well.
Fill crust and top with 2nd crust. Cut slits in top.
Bake on bottom shelf in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until browned.
Simple and delicious.
Draining the pineapples is really important. I remember the last time I made the pie it resembled soup with some chunks of fruit in a crust.
there will be no pictures since my camera had an unfortunate incident with a sink full of soapy water and i have not replaced it yet :)

Didn't you have enough to live for?
Was the high worth the pain your parents are in now?
What about your friends, your coworkers, your family?
You had such spirit, such life and now you are gone.
You will be missed, you were well liked, you brought humour here.
Life will never be the same Lisa,
I hope you have found peace.

I put the cereal in the fridge.
I tried to get into someone elses car after doing a bank deposit at work. This happens more often than I admit especially since there are so many cars like mine on the road. Today though.. he had his alarm on. Imagine how red my face was when I went into the bank to tell the bank manager (eek) that I was the one who set his alarm off. He thought I hit his car, I said.. nope just tried to steal it. hee hee
OH... and... I entered the code for our home alarm in wrong, set the siren off and spooked the cats, no bites luckily. The monitoring company called to make sure I wasn't a burglar.
Well at least I put my shoes on right today...
That's a story for another day.
