Did you know that tomorrow is Friday The 13th? Do you care? I'm pretty nervous about it. Isn't this the last year of the Mayan Calendar, too? That reminds me - along with no IKEA, Trader Joe's, Safeway, Nordstroms, or Cost Plus, Oklahoma has no Marie Callender Restaurants. And that means no Fresh Strawberry Pie from a Marie Callender Restaurant. Sigh!
My grandparents discovered Marie Callender Strawberry Pies when she would bake them and her son would sell them - I think it was at his fruit stand, but it's been a long time since then and my grandparents aren't around to ask. She would fill her flaky crust with a custard base and pile on only the best freshest strawberries to a height of 7or 8 inches, then cover the berries with a glaze. The best!
Oh, and all I can say about tomorrow is "Good Luck!"
