A couple of weeks ago I went with my friend Carla to see Waitress, a Sundance film starring Keri Russell. Russell plays the role of Jenna, a waitress at a small town “pie diner” who is stuck in a terrible marriage with a controlling husband she no longer loves.
I enjoyed the movie, and I guess I was inspired. When I found out that Shandon’s college Summer Supper Series was at Paula & Margeaux’s house this week and they needed desserts, I decided to try my own hand at making pies.
Of course, that mostly meant buying the pre-made Philadelphia cheesecake mix and crushing up Oreos to sprinkle on top…
Maybe I still have a thing or two to learn about making pies, but at the end of dinner there was nothing left to bring home, so I guess I did alright!
