So we got all moved into our house. There are boxes everywhere and I can’t find anything, but we’re in. My parents left (thank goodness for their moving help!) and we were looking forward to a nice and relaxing night in our new home. A glass of wine, a hot bath (for me), and a marathon of Hawaii 5-0 on the couch.
And then I pulled the plug to drain the bathtub after my hot, soothing soak.
And my husband started yelling. “PLUG THE BATHTUB!”
I ran downstairs to find my kitchen sink just about to overflow with water.
Under the sink it was raining from the garbage disposal.
Not only was the sink full of water, there were bits of dirt floating around. And pieces of paper. I won’t say what kind. You can probably guess.
Thank God for home warranties and plungers.
Oh, and pie, of course.
As soon as I heard that Tidy Mom was hosting her #Love the Pie party again this year, I knew I had to participate. How could I not?
Plus, I needed some balance after all the water and bleach and plunging. I needed to bake and I needed pie.
Since brownies are a huge obsession for me right now, I thought about a brownie pie. I have had my eye on this recipe for awhile now and thought a red pie would go good this time of year.
Since it’s practically a Thanksgiving rule that you have whipped cream on your pie and red velvet goes so good with cream cheese frosting, I married the two and made a cream cheese whipped cream on the side. Because brownies and pie crust isn’t sinful enough.
Pie: the solution to all life’s problems. Well, and a plumber, anyway.
