Graham Cracker Crust

Before I share my graham cracker crust story, I wanted to let you all know that I'm a guest over at Mum and Babies.  If you have a chance, please stop by and visit.

Now for the story. 

I had gotten the ingredients to make a strawberry pie with graham cracker crust.  As the day went on, I knew I was running out of time to make it, so I asked my ten-year-old daughter to do it.  She had done it before, so I figured it would be no problem.

A little while later, she presented me with the finished product.  "Ta dah!"

I looked at that thing.  Yes there were strawberries in there, but the top wasn't quite what I expected.  She had taken whole graham crackers, laid them on top of the pie, and scooped cool whip on top of them.

"Um," I said looking at that thing.  "That's interesting.  What's up with the graham crackers?"

"It's a graham cracker crust," she said.  "I didn't think we had enough cool whip, so I did it like this."

Now that's what I call a literal graham cracker crust!

    2. I'm not sure what's up with the comments. I let the lady know that we couldn't comment, so maybe it'll get remedied later. Thanks for visiting, though. And yes, the toe really hurt!
