Yesterday we hosted our second annual Summer Pie Day, one of the many made-up, food centric, family holidays that we celebrate.
The adults enjoyed refreshing mojitos using this recipe although modified to include mint instead of basil. The kids set up their own lemonade stand in the middle of the yard with a pitcher of water, a squirt bottle of lemon juice, a bowl of sugar, and a dish of mint leaves for garnish. Each cup they made was individualized and by the end of the evening, they were putting out some rather fine drinks.
We only had two pies this year, but they were both quite tasty. I made a raspberry pie and Husband made a peanut butter chocolate pie. Our friends, who had traveled six hours round trip to spend the day with us, had left their Nutella-strawberry pie sitting on their counter in the rush and bustle to get out the door. I teased them all day about this alleged pie.
After dinner and pie, we took to the neighborhood for an evening walk. Cody and his friend lagged behind during part of the walk, chatting and nibbling on tic tacs.
It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday.
