Fresh Pie~

Dear Mr. "Sandy Toes",

I hope tonight you can break free from your meetings and loosen your tie. I made fresh strawberry pie...it's warm enough where we can enjoy this out on the back table under the umbrella. Yes, I know it's not in the middle of July and it's not the weekend. But, tonight...let's pretend like it is!

Love,

Mrs. Sandy Toes

Strawberry Pie

2 cups of fresh strawberries cut up

One cooked crust (I buy the frozen and cook it off)

1 cup of sugar, water and a package of strawberry jello

After crust is cooled, Put cut up strawberries in the crust; Boil water and mix sugar and jello together with water till everything is dissolved; Let cool a bit; Pour over strawberries; Frig for a couple of hours;

Enjoy with a dollop of Cool Whip!
