I am sorry I’ve been gone for a couple of weeks. I got hit with minor food poisoning from, of all things, PINE NUTS! More about that later. The other thing was the darn FACEBOOK. All these people I went to elementary school, middle school, and high school with in Southfield, Michigan found me on there. I have been trippin’ and going back to memory lane for a few days. But if anyone from Do Re Mi pre-school and elementary school in Detroit, Michigan find me, I’m going to pass out!
Blueberry Pie from Incredibly Delicious
¼ cup dates, pitted and soaked
½ cup walnuts
¼ cup almonds
1 lb blueberries, fresh or frozen ( I used fresh)
½ cup dates pitted
Blend the crust ingredients in FP using the “S” blade. Pat mixture into bottom and sides of a pie plate, forming a crust. Press hard. Slice 1-2 bananas into ¼” rounds. (I only needed one banana). Cover the bottom and sides of the crust with slices. Blend one cup of blueberries with ½ to one banana and ½ cup of dates in an FP. Mix in the remaining blueberries (whole). Pour into pie shell. Chill and serve.
I made this on a Thursday, and had the leftovers on Saturday morning. By Saturday afternoon, I had the WORST taste in my mouth. Everything tasted bitter and disgusting. I mean everything…apple juice, fruit, it didn’t matter. The horrible metallic, bitter taste would not go away. By Saturday night, I panicked a little bit. I googled “bitter taste” and all the sites were telling me I had cancer.
After getting freaked out even more, I finally googled, “everything tastes bitter.” This site came up: http://www.hyam.net/blog/archives/60#comment-323. Finally, there was my answer. Apparently, pine nuts from China are causing an allergic reaction in some people.
