I think we screwed ourselves.  Last time my girlfriend went home to Chicago, she brought a couple pies for her family and some friends.  I have to go to Chicago this weekend to shoot a rugby tournament for Sky TV Sports, so my girlfriend took Friday off and we’re making a weekend out of it.  We going to some of her friends’ house for a cook-out and it was suggested she bring home a pie for dessert.  So, before work and after lunch, we hit up the Grand Traverse Pie Company in East Lansing for a couple pies.

Grand Traverse is in a little strip mall between MSU and the Meridian Mall.  If I would have gotten the GPS out and followed it like I should have, it would have been about a ten minute drive. Instead, I tried to do it from memory and went the wrong way.  Once we finally got there, we found parking spot up close and went to get our pies.  When you walk in, your overcome with pie.  To the right is a little freezer which was just calling my name.  You see, in this little freezer, they put their cheesecake and the Oreo Cheesecake was yelling at me to buy it.  My girlfriend looked at me and said “Just get it this time!”  How can I argue with her, so I got my Oreo cheesecake.  I’m sitting here eating it as I type this.  It is freaking delicious.  Very few things in life compare to Eli’s Cheesecake, but this was really good. I like cheesecake, but I love Oreo Cheesecake.

Besides the two Lakeshore Berry Crumb pies my girlfriend got for this weekend, she got an iced coffee to go.  She only had a few drinks before we got home.  She needed to add a little more milk and some Equal.  She said it was a little bitter. 

We chose not to have sandwiches at Grand Traverse this time because we did that last time and there’s still a lot of places in the area we’d like to eat at.  Last time, we went to the Grand Traverse in Okemos.  If you’d like to read that review about lunch, click HERE.

I’m sure, like last time, the pie recipents will let you know how the pies were.  I’m not a fan of pie myself, so I won’t be able to tell you, but I know last time, they were a hit.  I’ll go back for the cheesecake though….

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
