Ghosts of Boyfriends Past oh sorry I thought this was my movie. I mean Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. When we saw this movie I thought of myself and what I would do, if my boyfriends had returned. It stars Matthew McConaughey who plays a high fashion photographer, womanizer but he does have a little hidden sweetness, he just can't decide what he wants. Jennifer Garner is his long lost childhood sweetheart. They have both come home to a family wedding where his past girlfriends appear in the strangest places. Michael Doughlas plays the deceased Uncle. It was very predictable but cute and the chemistry between Matthew and Jennifer is perfect. This was rated PG13.
Now for the pie. Last week for Mother's Day we made each of our mother's a fresh strawberry pie to go along with the Barnes and Noble gift cards. I have not attempted to make a strawberry pie in years.I have several different recipes. If I attempted to do this again I am sure it would not happen. I don't know what happened, but both of the pies a little of the filling went through the bottom of the crust and set up under the crust. So it was like an extra layer, everyone commented how pretty it looked and how did I do it. Fluke. I am not guaranteeing it will work again. I let the shells cool for hours before we filled with the strawberries. It is not my favorite recipe but everyone else was tickled. Even my dad the pie baker was happy. He's family owned a pie company for years.Here is a recipe for the crust and the filling is below.nettsnook.blogspot.com/2009/02/stay-at-home-thursday.html
