I will have to be back later and answer all the questions. Shannon I can not wait,how the pie turns out.
Waving to all of you,Renate
My DD is coming!!!
OK, I've made the grape pie and...it's ok. It was incredibly easy to put together. It helped that I made the dough the night before. But I think I put too much lime juice because that flavor was very distinct. I would recommend sticking with lemon. I think, if I make this again, that I would use flour instead of instant tapioca as a thickener. The little bits of tapioca weren't pretty. All in all, it is a good pie. I think I might like to try it with concord grapes sometime...do they come in a seedless variety? Hmmm Oh, I think a big dollop of Cool Whip would have been good on this pie. It had the consistency of a cherry pie and Cool Whip just came to mind. I love Cool Whip!
Has anyone else made something grape?
I have a very difficult time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger.
Wow! It was pouring down rain when I came to work! So get ready Shannon! :)
Hmmm I think I might have to try the grape pie! Thanks for the tips Shannon. I usually use cornstarch to thicken my food. I usually don't keep tapioca on hand....
I havn't made it myself, but my aunt made the grape salad that has cream cheese, brown sugar, grapes, and a few other things in it....it is really good! Its a real easy recipe....
I still have my sniffles.....I hope the rain doesn't make it worse! LOL!
Berny congrats on being a proud mama! :)
Hope everyone is having a good day!
Waving to everyone!
the grape salad is on page two....one of them that got kinda messed up.....
it has cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, brown sugar, ect....
Cornstarch! Duh!!! I don't know why I said flour. Thanks Jet. I probably would have used flour just because it was in my head. OK I'm heading out to do some shopping. I have to exchange the webcam because it's not the exact one that DF wanted. With him being a computer engineer, I have to get just the right thing or else it won't be right. Oh well, it's his money, he can have what he wants. Love him.
Then I'm going back to World Market. There were some things that I just really want to get. Jet, I don't know if it's the same as the one you mentioned or not. There weren't any clothes or anything like that. It was home decor, kitchen accessories and food. Yummy Food! I think I'll find the Trader Joe's that's up here too. I'd like to check it out. OK ttyl
Have fun Shannon!
Its probably not the same one......the one I went to was between Cincy and Dayton and you are closer to Columbus??? I think??? Anyway they are loads of fun to go to! If you ever go to PA you need to check out all the flea markets! They are awsome!
Have fun with your DD tonight! :)

Shannon and Renate - thanks for the updates. Renate you have been busy since I checked in last. I think you were still in Colorado last I heard. Glad to hear you had a good time in Germany and got to visit with Twinkle.
How is everyone else?
just a quick bump - i overslept and now i have to get going into my usual saturday shopping, farmers market etc routine..... sunday we have the soccer finals germany againt spain an di want to make some nice dishes for our company...
picasso it is good to have you back - i have been busy with my job, DS and BF - my sister is in germany at the moment which is nice - i have such a good time with my cute and funny niece she is only 3. other then that nothing else..... berny will come to visit pretty soon an i am getting really excited about that.... it had been so nice to meet renate in person......
anyhow friends waving to all of you - lydia we are having a fruit salad, yoghurt chocolate muffins and orange tea
Twinkle, yumm, can I have two chocolate muffins, lol. How exciting for Germany to be in the soccer finals. Can't believe little Hannah is already three, I remember when you announced her birth. Have fun at the markets. Yesterday, DS#2 did the week's worth of grocery shopping for the first time by himself, and did very well, not even using a list.
Berny, congratulations to your son, what a proud accomplishment. How nice for you and DH to vacation together alone, am sure its been a while. Just recently DH and I travel w/o our sons and it's kinda wierd, but nice.
Picasso, TY for the recipes. Well, it's been refreshingly boring here in SE Wisc. I travel occasionally to Ft. Lauderdale w/DH and more frequently to downtown Chicago, which is about 60 miles south of where we now live. Both DH & I are from Chicago. Are you still in the same job position? Healthcare of some sort, no? I was three years in nursing school, but stopped for my own reasons.
Renate, enjoy DD's visit and hope you get to do some fun stuff. DH used to have St. Louis as a territory for his job and we had many wonderful driving trips there when the boys were small. A great town.
Shannon, TY for the review on the grape pie. Pies are one of the things I find challenging to bake. Only been to a World Market once, it was so fun, I coudda spent the whole day there, but there are none in the Milwaukee area. When it comes to computers/telephones/electronics, my guys are on their own because I'll always get the wrong thing, so I just gave up.
Supposed to be rainy and muggy here in SE Wisc. Dobie is learning to snorkel in the pool, lol, pretty entertaining, but it sure tires him out.. Everyone have a safe, happy day, lydia.
