I Forgot To Tell You

June 26, 2011

…I’m going to be here for the next two weeks:

Don’t hate me.

Actually, it’s okay.  You can hate me.  I kind of don’t blame you.

I think Ryan hates me a little bit—he won’t get here until next Friday.  He’s promised a guest post for early next week—so at least he’s keeping busy!  In order to soften the blow a little bit, I baked him a pie before I left:

Coconut Custard Pie.  You know…to remind him of the fact that I’m in the Bahamas and he’s not.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

If you can’t be looking at fresh coconuts up in the trees, at least you can enjoy a good coconut cream pie, right? Here are some pics from the baking process:

Don’t worry about keeping the whipped cream neat and orderly—you’re just going to top it with toasted coconut:

This pie screams tropical vacation.  And so does this:

…so I’m off to enjoy the view!

Happy weekend!
