Life took some seriously rough and hard turns for me, but now I am back and raring to go. I just wanted to update everyone on my progress. Last week at my weight watchers meeting I hit my 5% goal. Yiippeee. Now I am pushing hard for my 10% goal. Exercise has become a vital part of my life, but I just recently hurt my neck and back so now i am unable to do any exercise. I never thought I would say this but I am actually missing it, craving it. So heres to a new start.
***SUMMER BERRY PIE***
What You Need:
7 or more cups mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant or regular Tapioca
Zest from 1 lemon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons oatmeal
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
1 unbaked refrigerated pie crust
Wash the berries, draining excess water in a colander. In an eight-cup container, mix sugar, tapioca and lemon zest, then stir in lemon juice. Add fruit to complete the eight cups and stir gently. Set aside to macerate for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally from the bottom.
Blend the topping ingredients with a fork in a small bowl and set aside.
To assemble, prepare pie crust as directed in a deep-dish pie pan. Add filling. Spread topping evenly over the filling. Bake 55 minutes at 400F, covering loosely with foil if the crust or streusel begins to brown too much. Transfer to a rack and cool at least three hours to set. Refrigerate.
