A Pie in the Oven


As you may know, I bake pies. And from time to time I take on a pie frenzy for a purpose. I've baked pies to raise money for orphans in M-y-a-n-m-a*r. And I've baked pies to help us have enough money to pay fees related to an adoption of a domestic infant.

Since we're gearing up to move forward with that whole process, and given that it's holiday season, I figured it was time to put the shout out to see if anyone was interested in donating to the Kline Kid Cause in exchange for a pie.

I just took the first pie out of the oven. And I have orders for nine more. When some people are expecting they say they have "a bun in the oven." As for us, when we're expecting, you'll find pies in our ovens!

Jake and I baked a pie for the first time together the other day. It was, of course, messy and disastrous and the whole time I found myself really wishing you lived closer because you are so much more patient than I and are an awesome piewoman.

Also, I'm making your zuke bread for Thanksgiving!
