Sweetie La Pie: Banana Cream Pie

When trying to pick this month's PIE I was stumped. Peaches are coming in to season. It's hot so we would want a cool pie. No one wants to bake a thing. I wanted to do a peach pie.

Back at the beginning of May I had my second mammogram of my life. My first was at age 16, for a small lump found on my right breast.
