Shoo Fly Pie

Crystal fed the horses this weekend, as Lenny and Kay went to Lancaster. It was great, because they brought us home some Amish delicacies--sticky buns and shoo fly pie!

I've been very curious about shoo fly pie ever since I heard my friend, Anne Pinkerton, singing the Shoo Fly Pie song. We'll try it out later tonight when Ed gets home.

In, the meantime, I'm going to post the link to Anne's group, the Gabardine Sisters. The music is so beautiful it makes me forget about eating the pie. Anne is the singer in the blue dress. We were soccer moms together, and a bond like that can't be broken! It is sad that Anne lives in Nevada now, but thanks to the magic of Youtube, she can sing to me (or you) anytime we like! Here they are on Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy!


  1. You make me happy, my cross-continental friend! How was the pah?

  2. Anne's group is better than the internationally known Babuskas! Who would have guess such talent would be found in NV. Remember when she sang Shana Twian's, "From this Moment on," the day I got married? I I still get all choked up.

  3. I remember her singing at your wedding, too! It was so beautiful! We were lucky to book her before she became famous!

    Also, we ate the 'pah' last night. It was 'mahty' fine!

  4. Thank you for the kind comments, Verlene. I too remember fondly the day of your wedding. My daughter and I sang a song in was a beautiful day.

    Marie Callenders is gone now...where shall I buy my pah? :(
