A Pie For Mikey

My friend Jennie’s husband died suddenly last Sunday.

Mikey loved peanut butter cream pie, and Jennie asked us to make it in his honor today.

I used Jennie’s recipe, but in order to accommodate the various food needs of the crowd I’ll be eating with tonight, I used gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies, gluten-free chocolate, and almond butter.

This pie is very rich. I will share it and savor it with people I love.

And when we dig in, I will think about Jennie. And everyone else who’s lost someone, especially those who’ve lost loved ones in an instant. And much too soon.

Then I will hug the people I love tighter than usual. And say that I love them louder than usual.

I suggest you do the same.

xoxo Winnie
