Been busy "capturing life"...

Life has been very busy the last week. It seems that way most of the time, but this week I just didn't seem to have the time to blog. I slept instead. We are in the middle of basketball season for the boys AND for work, so we have something going on every night.

My photos lately haven't been all that "good" either. Basketball is a HARD-to-shoot subject- too dark and too fast. But what constitutes a "good" photo anyway?? Shouldn't any capture of life on film be consider "extraordinary", since it tells the story of your life at that moment, be it good or bad? Maybe then I HAVE taken some "good" pictures and should remember that life is not the number of breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away...

More later...gotta go capture life...

Phew!! You mean it's ok to scrapbook those pics that aren't ps'd to death and don't have perfect composition?? Even perhaps FRAME them? You are so right. A captured memory beats a forced pose any day. Love ya, girl!

Strawberry Pie:

Ingredients:
1 1/2 quarts strawberries
1 cup sugar (vanilla sugar adds an extra touch)
3 Tbs. Cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 package (8 oz cream cheese fat free works really well without adding a lot of sweetness)
1 Pie crust (Pillsbury or homemade)

Directions:

1. Prepare baked pie crust.
2. Blend enough strawberries to measure 1 cup. Add water, mashed strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk until mixture thickens and begins to boil. Boil and stir 1 minute; cool.
3. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Spread in pie shell. Fill shell with remaining sliced strawberries. Pour cooked strawberry mixture over top. Refrigerate about 3 hours or until set. (I actually popped mine in the freezer for about 2 hours before I served it and then after I served it I moved the left over to the fridge.) Hope you like it! Enjoy!
