Yesterday I celebrated my 42nd birthday. It started off the way all good days should, with an awesome, super-sweaty workout at the gym, followed by a protein bar and later, whole foods served on plates. One of those plates included a slice of this birthday blueberry pie:
Isn’t that just the most gorgeously wonky lattice top thrown together by me and pin-pricked with forks by 8- and 5-year-old helpers? At any rate the pie tasted delicious (as any pie with $12 worth of organic blueberries had better taste!)
