Have you ever traded pies for something? I'm currently in the process of trading two pies for an industrial sewing machine. Have you ever heard of such a crazy transaction? A month or so ago, a friend from my home town heard that I was in need of an industrial sewing machine so contacted me about her rather old, possibly in need of parts and a tune up, machine. You can imagine how elated I was when she offered to give it to me for free if I could use it. Heck yes I will use it! What an incredibly blessing!
This weekend (Easter break) Jonathan and I will be driving home and we'll be picking up this machine and table and I promised her and her family that I'd make pies in exchange. Ha ha obviously not in any way a fair trade but a trade none the less.
I'm beyond excited about this machine and even though I'm expecting to put in a few hundred dollars for repairs this will save me piles of money from buying a brand new $2,000 and up one. I know I'll have to invest in a newer one at some point but for now hopefully this machine will do the trick.
I do hope these pies are some what satisfying for their family as I'm not exactly the most experienced pie maker. Here's hoping they are tasty!
