Throwback Thursday: Pie Making

Throwback Thursday, because I made Boyfriend an apple pie last week! Pie pie pie. Pie.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

I came into an abundance of blueberries recently, and decided to make a pie.


Here’s how I did it, in 29 easy steps.


1. Look for a recipe with positive reviews.


2. Look at the comments and all the adjustments.


3. Go crazy.


4. Do some fancy math and create your own recipe.

Math. I did it.
5. Wash blueberries.

6. Eat some.

7. Measure them.

8. Know your limits. Add extra for snacking.


9. Keep snacking on those blueberries.

10. Put all the dry ingredients together and mix with blueberries

11. Taste some.

12. Realize how delicious blueberries + sugar is and go to town on the bowl.


13. Feel shame.

14 Put blueberries in pie shell



15. Cover and vent

16. Put in oven and do some fancy math to figure out how long and what temperature to cook for


17. Check pie after 15 minutes. See that crust fell down in one spot. Panic.

  
18. Be concerned that you ate too much blueberries.

19. Wish you had eaten more blueberries when you had the chance.

20. Consider napping because 50 minutes is  a long time for something to bake.

21. Take pie out of oven when timer goes off.


22. Panic til Boyfriend arrives

23.  Allow Boyfriend to praise pie


(It was the first time he saw me since this)

24. Cut pie. See it’s watery.

 I know its blurry I was in a rush shut up

25. Freak out.

26. Get assured pie is delicious

27. Eat pie.

28. Eat more pie.

29. NEVER STOP EATING PIIIIIIEEEEEE!


And that’s how you make a blueberry pie.

Sleepless Kitty

Recently, I stupidly thought my kitty was ready to sleep in my bedroom at night. 





I was mistaken.

Blogcast 33: Boyfriend Has Topics and Gia Has None


Boyfriend talks a lot in this podcast and I don't contribute much. In my defense, I think I'm getting a cold.

Throwback Thursday: Butter Coffee

Sadly (or not), butter coffee has appeared to fallen out of fashion. Here's to bringing it back! (Not that I've actually tried it. I haven't. Ooops.)

Have you guys heard of bulletproof coffee (or butter coffee)? Boyfriend has recently started using it.





Apparently blending is key to making it look like a real coffee and not black gunk with oil sitting on it. 




Don't stand between me and my breakfast. 




Boyfriend swears it's delicious, but I'm skeptical. Have you guys tried it? Or would you?

Kitty's Rent

Kitty has been with me for a little over a month now. And I've already broken the adoption news to her, but there's another sensitive topic we need to discuss. 



Yep. When I got a cat, my rent went up by about 30 bucks. I explained this very clearly to Kitty when I brought her home. I told her I'd float her the first month, but she'd have to get a job after that.






I can't imagine that going well.



No, no kitty of mine will be begging on the street.





No. People might get the wrong idea about kitty. 





What do you guys think? Kitty could totally get sponsored, no?
