Independence Day

Happy Birthday, America!
I made the blueberry pie this afternoon!
I tried to make it look festive. ha.
And snapped a photo of my patriotic flower pot.
Do you see a little face looking at you anywhere?
Happy Canada Day this weekend to my
Canadian blogger friends, too!
Be safe and remember to be thankful
for our freedoms! And thanks so much to
our military all over the world.
We appreciate you!
Now, who wants a piece of pie?

  7. I do!!! I've never made a blueberry pie, even though I love blueberries. You crust looks so flaky.

    Your Independence Day Collage is really quite beautiful and colorful. I'm ready to party.

  8. This is the first blueberry pie I've made, Wanda! I always seem to make a cobbler or crisp instead. And my crust gave me fits! My foolproof recipe decided today to be a pain. Ugh. ha.

  9. I could just eat that whopper-burger now.

    Bye the bye, you forgot the obligatory lettuce leaf!

    I'm still around, but quite busy and haven't had time to update my blog.

  10. Keith ~ I do like lettuce on my burgers! This one, is lettuce-less, though. :) It's a Hawaiian burger with teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, onions and bacon. Yum. Come on over, and I'll grill you one! ;)

    Canada Day was over two days ago
    Just a tad slow
    Happy 4th of July
    Even though here we go back to work, no lie
    So you get to have fun
    While I get bored and lurk a ton..haha

  14. Mmmm....blueberry sounds oh so good! Happy 4th!

  15. Pat ~ yes, I knew it was the 1st, but thought I'd include it just because I'm nice. And it is on the same weekend, I suppose, if you count the friday/monday holidays.

    So, you didn't see the little face? He has nothing to do with food, except always asking for some! ha. See, you saw pie and the rest was blinded by your eye.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, that adorable kitten is looking around at you wondering what's up???

  17. We had Blueberry Pie last night, but not near as pretty as yours :)
    Love your collage, so patriotic, and comes from the heart !
    Have a wonderful 4th !!

  18. haha no I saw the little face
    Just never mentioned him a trace
    For the pie took all my words
    Just like he eats all the birds..lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pat ~
    What if I said it was mouse pie?
    Would you calm down and forget to cry?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Only if it had the tails sticking out the side
    Drapped over like they are trying to hide
    That make it more fun
    Plus they are the best part when well done

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pat ~ well done, as in crispy?

    OK, for your birthday I'll make one
    just tell me when
    and I'll prepare
    a mouse laden pie
    with crispy tail pastry.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I'll neglect telling you the birthday of Pat
    Actually I'd like to see you cook that
    But oh that be nasty for sure
    Although the 5 kitties would gulp it down way before
    It even got cold
    So we'll put that idea on hold

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha...you don't want a present sent to bush #3?
    How about Spencer giving you a sing?
    I'm thinking you already told me it was in March.
    But then again maybe not.

  24. Your collage is GREAT. I wish I knew how to do that. Have a Happy 4th. I can't wait to see fireworks tomorrow. and blueberry pie, jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Silver ~ he's at my feet whenever I'm outside. I should have known he'd show up in a photo or two. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That month could be correct
    And rat pie or singing, the later I would elect..haha

    ReplyDelete
  27. Pat ~ see, my memory is as good as yours!
    Have to keep some competition at your shore!
    It's a long way off, but maybe he will be
    singing even better by then, you see!
    If not, mouse pie
    will be the consolation prize!
    ha.

    ReplyDelete
  28. With vanilla ice cream, please! (I never turn down virtual desserts!)

    I wonder if I could get a pie or two made tomorrow morning... Nah, probably not. Better stick with the baked beans and pasta salad..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Any pie left?
    We all want a piece of that delicious looking pie. And the burger isn't bad looking either.

    Glad to know the kittens are still around and growing!

    Happy Fourth of July to you, your men and all the animals.

  31. If you have coffee to go with the pie I'll take a piece! Saw the cute little kitty-face.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'll try the pie after the hamburger. Glad to see in the comments how you made it...excellent! I made grilled "hockey pucks" last night...got a bit distracted and left the burgers on the grill a bit too long. (-:

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, yes!! I want a piece! Love your decorative touch! Most fitting for the Fourth of July! blessings ~ tanna

    ReplyDelete
  34. Christine ~ of course I save a piece for all of you, here at my zoo! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anita ~ oh, don't you hate it when that happens? I've been doing the opposite lately, worried that I'll over-bake something and then it is underdone. The last two times I make cornbread it was raw in the middle. :P

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can you believe I have never eaten blueberry pie! I am going to have to fix that right away.
    Smiles and waves,Dottie

  52. i'd like some pie, thank you!! and i'd like the boyz to come home, all of them, and when i say boyz, it includes all women serving as well. i am tired of hearing of our folks dying, and for what? let's see in the next few years what has been accomplished over there... a lasting democracy? not likely... but i am a cynical guy. don't mind me. so, where's my pie!!
    :D~
