I don’t know about you, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Olympics. It is just so inspiring and incredible to watch these athletes who have worked so hard to get there, and I love to celebrate their success with them. I’ve been trying to instill that same excitement in my kids, so this weekend my Zellie and I decided to make a red, white, and blueberry pie with an Olympics theme.
Since I wasn’t using a recipe, it was super helpful having my new gorgeous teal HP notebook to look up references and to keep track of what I was adding. Its been a game-changer having my own computer in the kitchen! I really like this one too because it has a TON of storage for all my photos I take as I cook. They are on sale at HSN right now for a great deal! Check them out here: http://gohsn.co/tfCEyP
^Originally I had added butter to the filling, and decided against it last minute. Ignore the butter in this picture 🙂
I thought it would be fun to not only make the pie red, white, and blue, but to also add some fun Olympics touches with the pie crust. A mason jar lid made the perfect template!
Adding some letters put the perfect final touch on our beautiful pie! Serve with some vanilla ice cream, and turn on the Olympics for me, will ya?
