My grandfather loved pie. He preferred pie for his birthday than cake and my grandmother was always willing to oblige. She made some of the best home-made rhubarb pie I have ever tasted. They had a very large garden (especially for having a home in the ever congested State of California) that I loved to play in as a child. From fruit trees, to green bean vines to strawberries and even rhubarb. Our dinner table was always covered in the days pickings, but none more fun and precious than when Nana would make Popop pie. We’d roll out the crust together and she’d do magical things with the berries and then we’d all sit around waiting and smelling the wonderful aroma of home-made pie.
Recently, while perusing other Mommy blogs, I came across a blog called The Busy Budgeting Mama who has some really cute ideas and posts along with this fabulous idea from Our Best Bites which is a single serving pie in a jar. It is uber cute and it looks and sounds as delicious as it is cute. I can imagine these being made as wonderful favors for a wedding, shower or party, or just to have stored in the freezer for something quick and easy to grab for your next potluck or to have on hand when guests stop by.
