Pie, Pie, Pie Delilah

23 Aug

Red red raspberry goodness

Thursday afternoon – it’s that glorious time (here in Israel, at least) when a whole weekend of freedom sits before you, untouched.  What are your weekend plans, kids? This evening I’m off to see Cirque du Soleil with my brother which I’m tres excited about! There is also a Mystery Guest joining us. Things are always more enjoyable when there’s an element of surprise. On our last family holiday we saw the Cirque in Vegas, so it’s a nice little reunion for all parties involved. Tomorrow’s plans are to wait in for my gas mask delivery. More on this topic another time as yes, it is scary and also in some way morbidly hilarious.  Ding dong! Gas mask delivery! Not quite as exciting as books, or shoes…

Then I plan on convining Dotan to go fruit and berry picking on a nearby farm, to spend some time outside for a change and so that I can make some lovely pies next week.  In true southern belle fashion, our last Shabbat guest, Talya, brought us a delightful pie (as Americans like to say ‘made from scratch’, although I didn’t realise until recently there was any other kind) encased in a perfect, buttery, flaky pie crust, which was just delicious. I’m thinking of Raspberry, Blueberry and Peach. Mostly Peach. Because of this  and this and also this  yumminess.

My other plan is to hug Dotan a lot, as he’s finally coming home after almost a month away!!

Pies on the windowsill – can you smell them?

Hope you have a sweet and sunny weekend, wherever you are.

Shabbat shalom! x

Blackberries – for the win!
