BUTTERFINGER PIE

I’ve had a long week here with multiple visits to the emergency vet for Gunner’s ear, a knee problem that has kept me immobile a lot of the time as well as FUMING mad at the medical “professionals” that are dealing with it.  
The ultrasound technician who performed one of the tests on me over 2 months ago, my primary care provider and I believe hit the nail on the head as to the cause.  Now, if we could just get the “specialists” and their staffs as well as the primary care physician’s staff to get all their crap together maybe, JUST MAYBE I could actually get treated so I can walk again without pain.
In the meantime, I need pie.  Don’t you need pie?  Make this pie and you won’t be disappointed.
