They say when you are in a time of need you learn who your true friends are. This week our friends have really been there for us. There was a death in our extended family and friends have really stepped up to the plate. Either by calls of concern, texts messages that lightened our day or giving of their time and talents. With a funeral an hour and a half away where none of us live food will travel with us.
Our friends have cooked pies, breads, and main dishes. But probably the biggest sacrifice was the friends who came to help me cook tonight. Over 3 hours of cooking in overdrive . I think we dirtied every bowl in the house - twice. But with great friends here it was such fun. And at the end of the night we have memories. As a bonus she made her first successful chocolate pie. The look on her husband's face when he saw the towering meringue was only topped by the smile and nod with his first taste. Guess I will be sharing my Mama Trammell's pie recipe with her.
Thanks again Danny & Michelle!
