i made a pie.
a get-out-your-sparklers-it's-independence-day pie.
a strawberry rhubarb pie. 

it was a blue ribbon beauty.
and about as americana as it gets.

i stuck it in the oven.
browned the crust to perfection.
and then we waited a few hours for that pretty little pie to cool.

just as the fireworks show began
we all gathered around the kitchen table
and enjoyed a delicious slice of strawberry rhubarb...soup.
a la mode.
