In my years living in the States, I know to expect to attend at least one cookout on Memorial Day weekend.
We went over to the in-law's for a small cookout yesterday and my MIL requested strawberry rhubarb pie. And I happily obliged, of course.
I made the crust with the pastry cutter this time because I was lazy to go get the food processor, then have to clean it. I forgot how fun it was to cut pastry, even though it's a little messier. I really love crust... As a kid I used to buy the apple pie from McDonald's, ask for a straw and scrape out the filling so I could just eat the crust. I've always toyed with the idea of just baking crust and eating it with ice-cream. Anyone? No? Just me then?
It's always great hanging out with the in-laws... Hot dogs, burgers, salads and pie. YUM :) Plus their backyard is just lovely. It's shaded enough that I can wander a little without bursting into flame :)
What did everyone get up to this past weekend?
