Happy Fourth of July!

There are a surprising amount of Americans living in and around Eindhoven. This means that we get together and celebrate American holidays (like the 4th, Thanksgiving, and Halloweenie things). Every year the North American Women's Club does a 4th of July BBQ. This year I decided to get really festive and bake a pie! In 9 billion degree weather with 9000% humidity! GO ME!

Cherry Blueberry PIE

My crust got a little stuck to the foil so it's not as pretty as I would've hoped, but I thought the star looked pretty awesome.

Martijn contributed by being the MAD (as in insane) BBQer!

We had a really great turnout! There were about 75 people, and quite a few were new faces so that was fun.

I have to say, the pie looks great, the bbq looks scrumptious, but Martijn looks scary! I would be too afraid to grab some food. I'd have to stalk around like a racoon and grab some after. Mean Martijn.
