2nd Time Around Tuesday

I am joining Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words for another 2nd Time Around Tuesday.  I have been looking for a pie plate like this for a few years and last year I found one!  It is nothing fancy just an aluminum pie plate.  The thing I love about it is, the big wide edges that make it possible for you to make those really great homemade crimped edges on your pie crust.
I also have a wonderful old rolling pin to show you.  I think this was purchased at an antique store.  The reason I love this rolling pin is that someone had taken the time to stamp little hearts all around the edge of this roller.   I am pretty sure it is old.  The ends of the pin's handles have copper nailed on it also.  I just love the details someone went out of their way to give this rolling pin.
Now I have to show you my semi-homemade pies I made last night.  This is quick and easy pie.  My husband and I have debated if it is cheaper to buy a ready made pie from the deli or to just buy the ingredients and make it. I think it is about the same amount of money but you get a tastier pie when you make it semi-homemade and fix it up a bit.  Making it from scratch is always the cheapest but not always possible due to time involved.
This is a cherry pie.

This is a blueberry pie.

Now here is the best way to eat it.  A little slice of each pie hot out of the oven.
Oops, we forgot the ice cream.:)
Please join Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words for all the second hand treasures.

Your pies are making me hungry. Did your new2U pie plate make them taste better?

I've never seen one like that.
