Yesterday, to celebrate the 4th, my husband made a fresh strawberry pie. I wanted to take a picture of it, but we devoured it too quickly. Seriously, there is no pie left today and I am sad about that. The whole, fresh berries are pulled together with a cooked jam and fill a flaky pie crust. There is nothing better than chilled fresh strawberries on a hot day, and this pie was just the ticket. I think that it will be a repeat in this house. We spent our day outside playing by the water, grilling, and then devouring this tasty pie. How did you spend the 4th?
