My bees are coming today! My sister's friend is bringing me bees. In exchange, I'm giving him a piece of pie. This is a very good deal for me, but in fairness, it is a very good pie. I made it up. I was thinking of lemon-rhubarb, and found a filling for honey-lemon-rhubarb. But when I'd made the fruit-y filling, it didn't look like enough. I like a heaping pie, you know. So I thought some more, and what I thought was, what if I put something under the honey-lemon-rhubarb topping. Kinda like a cheesecake, and from there, lemony ricotta was inevitable. Poured the fruity filling over that, and was grateful that I didn't have to make a top crust. It came out pretty tasty. This is the type of creativity that wins pie contests*, and brings me bees. The barn will no longer sit empty.
*It is also the sort of creativity that loses pie contests, since apparently the people weren't impressed by the sweet corn-flavored custard pie. Whatever, savages. Sweet corn is a dessert flavor in Asia, as you might know if you weren't so ignorantly wedded to pecan or chocolate. Sometimes Art gets ahead of its audience, and you just have to tell yourself that amazingness is more reward than winning some stupid contest could ever be.
