The Real Housewives of Provo

Well I don't know if it is because I saw "The Help" or if because I drive by the 
fruit stand everyday but when but I woke up on Saturday morning I was
very determined to make my very first ever pie!
It is practically a marriage rite of passage to make a pie and even though I did not 
make my own crust, which some will scoff at because that is the hardest part,
I know Marie Callender can do it better than I, so have at it Marie!

So pi=3.14 and pie=3.14 HOURS!
It was not a perfect attempt, I was quite the stress case and my mom was in my kitchen via Skype 
checking pie crusts and glaze viscosity but overall a success I think.

I headed to Allred's Orchard for a bushel (bushel??) of fresh peaches
I peeled the peaches using the hot water method
I made a glaze over the stove
I sliced each peach 
I baked and cooled my crust
I combined glaze and peaches
I poured peaches into crust
I made thick, sweet whipping cream right before serving.
I ate my humble pie.
It was delicious.

It was not quite as good as my mom's but everyone said they liked it.
I served it in St. George at Ben's parents house-more about our weekend to come.

So now I am quite the southern belle and probably will be whipping these things up all the time,
Ya'll come back now ya hear.
