I've seen a lot of great book + meal ideas on Pinterest. This is something I've been wanting to try for awhile, because we love books here...and some of us love food - some of us, not so much (ah - the troubles of being two!). ;) So, one day a couple of weeks ago, in our effort to beat the winter blues, we had our very first book + meal collaboration. I have seen some really fantastic book + meal ideas. Some families go all out with food and decorations. Yeah...you aren't going to see that here. ;) The book we chose was one of our all time favorites: The Blueberry Pie Elf by Jane Thayer. The obviously food choice? Blueberry pie!! We could have made a blueberry pie by scratch or tried all the different pies that they make in the book (blueberry, cherry and apple), but instead I just bought the only frozen blueberry pie available at our little local grocery store. Gotta start small, people...! ;) We read the book and ate the pie and it was a hit.
Somebody could NOT wait to dig into the pie. ;)
On this particular day she chose to wear her Halloween costume. Totally normal in our house... ;)
