Easy as pie?
Whoever it was that coined that aphorism probably never made a pie. Or at least, they never cleaned up after making one.
The photo shows the aftermath (along with the resulting two pies) of a pie-making session in my kitchen. And really, the process was relatively easy considering I'd picked the berries way last summer. These were the last of the blueberries in the freezer.
I'd even been one step ahead of the game with the pastry, as I'd made up the 'dry' part of it some while ago, and it had been waiting in the back of the fridge for this very day.
Still, what with the flour and the rolling and the fitting parts together -- well, you can see the mess for yourself.
As for the inside of the oven now that the pies have baked, well, I'm saving that job for some other day.
