purple soup and the pie hut

I must be back in Idaho if I am having lunch at the Pie Hut.

Be still my heart.


Today’s special: sweet potato soup.

So why is sweet potato soup purple, you ask?  I have no idea.  Are there purple sweet potatoes in this world?  I know there are gold ones.

Ah, something to google…

The white topping is coconut milk and lime.  Lovely, isn’t it?

I also indulged with half a turkey sandwich and—oh, bliss!—a slice of lemon meringue pie.

Pie!!!  Pie!!!  Pie!!!


When not cooking or sitting in the Pie Hut looking at pie, I am slowly cleaning up the beach.  There is lots of firewood for this summer’s campfires.  The Funny Grandson has asked if we can have s’mores again (the kid doesn’t forget anything) and because I am Grandma I said, “Of course.”

The ingredients are sitting on a counter in the mud room.  The s’mores and I are waiting for a campfire and the guys who will sit around it and tell me that my marshmallows are on fire (I like them that way).

Ah, summer…

We are supposed to have nice sunny weather on Sunday and from that day on…so I say, bring on the sun!  I’m ready to party.
