July 20, 2007--Preparation

Catie wakes up at 5;00 a.m. and gets on the train to O’Hare

Catie has conversations about pies on the train with Dan from wine-o-rama, he asks good questions about pies

Her plane takes off at 8:00 a.m.—she is on her way

Meg wakes up at 8:00 a.m. to bake pies

Meg’s oven is slow-2 hours to bake a blueberry pie at 500 degrees—The meringue for the lemon mostly sets after an hour of baking

Meg makes
4 Chocolate pies
2 Lemon Meringue pies
2 Banana pies
4 Blueberry pies

Cherry and apple pies still needed to be made

While pies are baking, Catie is in the air; Meg attempts to get last minute press because earlier attempts garnered nothing.

Pies are done!

Meg wraps pies in plastic, grabs tablecloth dresses, and throws an umbrella in her bag. She kisses her husband on the cheek and walks to the train

Meg leaves message for Catie hoping she has landed

Catie calls Meg she is here! And waiting for a car—Meg and Catie decide to meet at 60th St. and 5th Ave at 11:45

Meg gets on the train

Catie gets in a car

OH NO! Catie is late! Damn airports

Catie and Meg experience moderate stress, Catie arrives and the lawyer who split the car with her expensed the car ride—Thanks you James! —Catie and Meg meet and hug

Catie and Meg walk to Conservatory Water for a late pieing
