Anyway, my department at work hosted a slice of pie sale for the employees and the residents at our nursing home.
You never can tell how these things are going to turn out, because we had to have employees volunteer to bring in homemade pies that we were going to sell.
OUR EMPLOYEES ARE THE BEST, because every single person who signed up to bring a pie brought one, and not a single resident had to pay for a slice of pie, as the employees bought them for the residents! This may not seem like a big deal, but baking a pie from scratch is time consuming, and making or buying a pie is expensive, not to mention buying slices to eat and give away!!!
(this was just about HALF of the pies!)
WE RAISED ABOUT $150 FOR OUR RESIDENT CHRISTMAS FUND!!!!!! Each Christmas, employees sign up to buy a present for a resident. We are reimbursed up to $20 per gift. If you think about how many people there are in a nursing home... that's a lot of cash! Our slice of pie sale just bought Christmas presents for about seven people!
Anyway, I brought a lemon cream cheese pie and a pumpkin cream pie. I'll share the recipe! I don't like pumpkin very much, but I actually really enjoyed this particular pie...
