I'm getting all the ingredients out to begin making pies today. My friend, E, will be coming over to teach me how to make her awesome pie crust. We'll make 3 pies, have one for tonight and two for tomorrow's progressive dinner. I've got apples, peaches, pears (from our tree), blackberries, and blueberries that I picked a month or so ago. I haven't decided which combination of fruits will go into which pies. I'm also making a roast chicken with rice and asparagus for dinner tonight to thank E for her instruction. We'll have another friend over, eat, play backgammon and maybe partake of a little wine.
