There are sooo many things to do with an empty pie shell. Think of it as a totally blank canvas and go from there. I think first of quiche. I make literally 10 different types of quiche with veggies, different types of cheeses, and leftovers.
Think also of fruit pies. The skies the limit on fruit pies with all different types of fruit, different toppings and so on. Think also of summer pies, I love the one you make with jello, cool whip and jello pudding. Yummy.
I am sure you could think of many more things to do with an empty pie crust. Also, one can do so much with imagination. Foods are such a pallet. Think about tastes you love and combine with other tastes you love. Also, think about all of the new fruits and veggies that are out there now.
Finally, I do not mean to be a nag, but also check out labels as you shop. We now know sooo much more about nutrition and health. Take advantage of all of this new knowledge.
It actually snowed yesterday. Just when we here were all hoping for the dogwood blossoms, it actually snowed among the “white” trees. Yes, we had white dogwood trees in the start of their beautiful yearly bloom, then white flakes of snow making flurries into the petals. The robins on my front lawn were very confused as was I. The theme here is “hope.”
Winter in the weather and winter in my heart simply cannot last forever. Boy, warm weather and fresh fruit and outdoor hikes keep coming up in my dreams. How about YOU?
Beautiful surroundings are good for your soul. Create lovely things in your home. Perhaps make it a bit of a hobby and give yourself a budget. I think you will find that you can do a lot with very little $$$$. In fact, you might make that a challenge. I wish you beauty!
