October 26, 2011 – Telephone conversation between Nicole and Krista

K: Hey, I was wondering if you got a chance to do the daring bakers challenge?
N: Ah, nope, I was hoping you had done it.
K: Nope.
N: Well… maybe I can do it tomorrow, I have the day off. Do you think you will have time to do it?
K: Hmmmm I don’t think so. I’ll let you know if I get a chance and you let me know if you get it done before hand.
N: Sounds good!

N: Did you do the challenge?
K: No you?
N: Nope. Can we skip this one? I don’t know if I will get time to do it today.
K: We already missed 2. We need to do this one.
N: Will you have time?
K: Doubtful – I have to paint a room for Grandpa
N: Ok – I haven’t even looked at the recipe yet, do you think I have everything here I’d need?
K: Yeah you should
N: Ok, I’ll find some time. I’ll let you know if I get it done!

Strawberry Pie

Nothing is better than delicious local strawberries… yummers!!

I made this pie for desert this past Fathers Day and it was a huge hit! It is very simple to make and doesn’t require a lot of different ingredients. It does need a good chunk of time sitting in the fridge to set though so keep that in mind if you are trying to rush it. This is definitely something I will be making again, possibly experimenting with other fruits.
