Day 338: Strawberry Pie

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

A few weeks ago I made dinner for my some of my family and my boyfriend. The main meal was just a simple stir fry, but the dessert was a super yummy Strawberry Pie! So, I thought I’d share that here. I found the recipe on my favorite site, Pinterest. The recipe is the last one on this page. I started out by slicing up the strawberries and putting them into the graham cracker pie crust.

Then I cooked all the other ingredients together…

And poured it on top of the strawberries… it was a little overflowing, so I put the pie on a sheet pan.

Then it set for 4 hours in the fridge and it was done!

Oh man, was this good! Super simple, but tasty. I think my boyfriend ate more than half of the pie by himself over the next few days. This pie reminds me of summers at my grandparents lake house, because my grandmother always made one similar to this. I’ll definitely be making this again!

Day 337: Lake Pictures

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

For my birthday weekend (which was over a month ago at this point… oops), the Georgia part of my family and I went to a friend’s lake house! Well… we call it a house, but it was more like a mansion!! I’m telling you, that place was huge! At any rate, it and the views were gorgeous, so I took a ton of photos. I immediately instagramed some of them and then got around to editing a few more today in Photoshop. This post is pretty photo heavy because I had a hard time narrowing it down, so I’ll keep the descriptions short!

This first photo is of the main house looking from the direction of the lake.

This photo is of the small A-Frame guest house.

And here’s my cousin Clarissa and aunt Kitti walking with second cousin Wells in front of the guest house!

And Wellsie on the small dock, which she kept calling a boat!

This was the view from the small dock to the main house and dock.

Here’s part of my family swinging on the swing outside of the guest house.

A closer look of the main house…

They had this sign right by the door… I thought it was appropriate :P

Here’s one of my other second cousins, Charleston or Charlie! Isn’t she adorable??

They had this amazing stone fireplace where the stone went all the way to the ceiling in this double-height living room! It was nice and cozy to be around!

For my birthday my aunt made one of my favorite desserts, Pineapple Upside-Down Cake! It was soooooo good!!

So! Overall it was an amazing, restful weekend! Probably one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had! I can’t wait to go back!

Day 336: The A Team

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

This creative project is a cover of Ed Sheeran’s The A Team. I’ve been hearing this song on the radio for awhile now, and always wanted to cover it, so I did! I started out by putting the piano part into Garage Band. Then I recorded the vocals and added the shaker. I ended up making the piano part sound like an acoustic guitar because it seemed more appropriate. At any rate, here’s my cover!

The A Team

I’m not super happy with the way my voice sounds on this recording and was planning on redoing it, but now I have strep, so I decided to just go ahead and post it as is! It’s not terrible, I just messed up a bit.

Sorry for such a short post! I should be posting at least one more creative project tonight, and maybe a few more tomorrow! Keep on the look out for them!
