Color me blue and give me some pie

Hey there! I had a great weekend, because Jonathan and I hosted a birthday surprise party for one of our friends. I didn't take any pictures, which is because I was running around my house getting drinks, cleaning up, visiting with friends, and serving tons of food. We had about 25 guests and it goes without saying we had a truckload of food (21 lbs of meat to be exact). I would like to point out that this would happen when you send two men in their late 20's to buy food for the party. Their (cute) way of thinking was averaging how many pounds of meat could be eaten per person? Seriously, I did not make this up...

On that note I would like for you to have a sweet Tuesday and check out this blueberry pie recipe. My mother-in-law makes this pie and I LOVE it!! It is a great summer pie because it is served cold and blueberries are in season.
~German Blueberry Pie~
2/3 cup sugar
1 pkg pecan sandies (minus 5 cookies for hungry husband)
1 stick butter (real)
1- 8oz cream cheese softened (full fat... sorry ladies)
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 pint fresh blueberries

In a large mixing bowl crumble pecan sandies & blend with enough melted butter to hold together (you may not use the entire stick because you still want a little bit of a crumble to the mixture).
Press into large pie pan. Add cream cheese and sugar into bowl and then add eggs one @ a time, mixing well. Next, add vanilla.
Pour into pie shell. Sprinkle blueberries over top & allow to sink into custard. Please note you will probably not use all the custard.
Bake 350* x 25 minutes until set. (I have to bake longer) Cool, chill several hours or overnight.

Say hello to helper number 1
Helper number 2 (right at my feet and he is hoping I will drop some food)
And voila! A pie perfect for summer! I hope you will love eating it and it's a great dish to serve for friends or family after a weekend dinner.

Until next time,
