Chocolate Pie Turnover — MidWeek Blues — the "Iowa Way"

As you can tell, I'm back from Iowa and have started to catch up with my blogging craziness cravings.

I have been staying with my sister, Lois, who lives in Iowa. I rode up with her and hubby, Jim, a week ago Monday and then flew back yesterday courtesy of Delta Airlines and my savings account.

Mrs. Jim stayed home this time. She had the pets with her though, Adi, Katrin, and Amber

Lois is a very nice host (link to prior blog about her taking Mrs. Jim and me to Joensy's, picture below, left, of her eating a pork tenderloin sandwich--she treated me there again this time!). We certainly didn't hurt for food while I was there.

Her brother-and-sister-in-law, John/Jack and Mary Lou also came to visit us on Wednesday. Mary Lou had made and brought the most delicious butternut squash pie I have eaten. Well, it was the first one also but it was really good. When she brought it in we thought it was my favorite vegetable, pumpkin pie.

Lois had made this chocolate pie and baked an apple crisp cobbler too. After we had eaten generous portions of all three, Lois stacked them in her refrigerator with the chocolate on top. Wouldn't you know it fell out top down onto the floor.

Lois saved the day for us. She carefully scraped the remaining meringue off and with the leftovers during our stay we finished it off with whip cream. Well, we didn't exactly finish off the chocolate pie OR the squash pie.

Mary Lou took both leftover pies home with her.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.

Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE or BLUE THOUGHT, you don't have to write.

I agree with you that pumpkin is a vegetable. It's my very favorite pie in the entire world.

I love the pie save. I'd have done the same thing.

What is that sandwich? That is huge.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
Too funny, but I don't blame her!

P.S. Thank you for the comment on the pumpkins. I have two sons, 6 and 2, but no granddaughters yet! :) I think you might have me confused with another blogger.
Ooh, that looks like a hy-vee tenderloin sandwich. Goodness but I miss those.
a pie is never too far gone to be saved!!
no pie shall die this day - that's what I say

I was coming to answer your question about what time MWB came up when I checked and it was there already

Hope sends hugs
That pie didn't hurt the floor in the least, and I am sure the floor didn't hurt the pie either. Who cares what it looks like? It's not too attractive after you chew it up anyway!
Mary Lou made the most delicious butternut squash pie you have eaten? How grand!
Of course, the one time I stop by in a long time and of course it's all about food.

Gotta love it.
Hi Jim ~~ So the Jim bunch eats again. Wow all those delicious pies.
Glad you had a nice week with your sister. I am enjoying the few days with Peter and tomorrow will be sad saying goodbye to Anne and seeing her husband's pain. He rang this morning and I asked how he was, Keith said "I've had better weeks." I bet.
Peter has been asked to speak at the service He leaves on Saturday.
Glad you liked the Puppy story and that joke prayer- "If I pray for strength, I'll kill him. I hope Mrs Jim's sister liked it too.
Take care my friend and thank you for your concern. Regards, Merle.
Funny! I enjoyed reading this post very much!
At least you already had some pie. On one birthday of my oldest daughter (teen then), I was too hasty and dropped her (whole) banana cream pie but the kids didn't care about cleanliness -they wanted the pie!
