This post is for those of you (or your kids) who want to become friends with your enemies. And for those of you who have no enemies and want to keep it that way! ;)
“It was the perfect summer. That is, until Jeremy Ross moved into the house down the street and became neighborhood enemy number one. Luckily Dad had a surefire way to get rid of enemies: Enemy Pie. But part of the secret recipe is spending an entire day playing with the enemy!”
“In this funny yet endearing story, one little boy learns an effective recipe for turning your best enemy into your best friend. Accompanied by charming illustrations, Enemy Pie serves up a sweet lesson in the difficulties and ultimate rewards of making new friends.”
“Enemy Pie is the fastest known way to get rid of enemies”
I’m learning with my two year old son that sharing is hard. Most of the time it’s difficult for him to take turns, to share his toys, and to be kind to his friends. There’s one particular girl who he has a love – hate relationship with. Some days they get along great and give each other hugs and other days he comes home with scratch marks and tears. We call them frenemies! :)
One who feels hatred toward,
intends injury to, or opposes the
interests of another; a foe.
A person whom one
knows, likes, and trusts.
Summertime in AZ is HOT and I thought this would be the perfect activity and opportunity for me to teach my son the important lesson that this book demonstrates.
So together we baked a pie for his best friend enemy. Oh what a treat this was. He loves helping me cook!
Here’s the secret “Enemy Pie” recipe we came up with:
2 pie crusts (keebler pre-made)
1/2 c milk chocolate chips
2 TB peanut butter
5 oz vanilla pudding
1 1/2 c cold water
1 can evaporated milk
1 tub cool whip
mini Reeses PB cups
1. Combine dry pkg. of pudding, water and evaporated milk. Put in the fridge to set.
2. Spread PB on top of the 2 pie crusts (1-2 TB per crust).
3. Lay your sliced bananas(1-2 per pie) on top of the peanut butter.
4. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle chocolate over bananas.
5. Divide the pudding mixture in half and pour in the two pie crusts. Then spread on the softened cool whip on top.
Refrigerate the pie for several hours.
Before serving you can top it with reeses, chocolate chips, and whip cream.
This pie is secretly the best pie ever!! So so yummy!
Then make sure to deliver the pie and enjoy it with your BEST friend enemy! You never know … they may just be your new best friend!
