"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."

Blueberry Pie

You know we picked um.  You know we baked um.  They tasted yummy!  But....

the pie was not perfect.

I got the recipe from allrecipes.com.  As i'm sure you know, people comment and make adjustments, etc.  So what do you follow?  Logically it would be the original recipe, but sometimes enough people comment about a particular part of it that you begin to wonder if a changes is not necessary. 

So i made pie, based on recommended changes - the first one was good but a little runny.  Not too sweet.  I decided to add more sugar and cornstarch.... we were a bit surprised at the runniness of the second pie.  After much thought i realized that the extra sugar was pulling out more of the blueberries' juices and so for the third pie i cut back to the recipe stated amount while adjusting the corn starch.  PERFECT!

We had a perfect Blueberry Pie last night.  Today the changed factor will be the blueberries.  I froze what we did not need for this last pie and didn't eat.  Bear wants a blueberry pie for his birthday 'cake' today so my hope is the frozen will be just as wonderful as the fresh.

I will post the recipe later.
