My Sweet Tooth

I had to have my teeth cleaned today.  I hate the dentist.  I guess, maybe I should say that I hate the experiences I have had at the dentist.  We just switched dentist AGAIN recently, and  I love my dentist!  I'll tell you why.  One Monday in April, I started having some pain with a crown I have.  When I realized that I had some type of infection, it was Wednesday and my regular Dr.'s day off.  Not feeling comfortable calling my old new dentist (because I had never been seen there) I decided to wait it out until my MD was back in her office.  And wouldn't you know, that was the week she decided to take a few days off.  Friday night was my turn to host my Bunco group,  and I thought, a few drinks, some Tylenol and I'll feel fine.... and then it dawned on me... Andrea!  She's a Dentist! She can prescribe drugs! Hallelujah!!  Ryan ran into the pharmacy for me, and I got started on the antibiotic right away.  Unfortunately, I was not better the next day.  But you know what?  She met me at her office on a SATURDAY performed some procedure and I felt instantly better.  I've pledged my eternally love to her.  So, back to the dentist today.  It was just a cleaning, and I know some people really like having their teeth cleaned, but I'd rather have a baby.

This is probably one of the reasons why I hate the dentist.  I have an incredible sweet tooth.  And strawberry pie is my favorite.  Ok.  ONE of my favorites.  I made this last week with the strawberries Elizabeth and I picked.

Strawberry Pie

1 baked pie crust ~ I like the Pampered Chef recipe, or this one, Marie Calendars'

3/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons corn starch
2 cups boiling water

Cook until clear, remove from heat and add 1 (3oz) package strawberry jello.  Pour this glaze over 2 quarts of clean, sliced strawberries.  Refrigerate until set.

I'd rather eat this than.... cake!

Post note:  This was to be posted Tuesday night, when I fell asleep watching the dvr of The Bachelorette.

I'm assuming you're talking about Andrea Hutton! She IS awesome! We love her! And, I really appreciate how good she is with kids! Definitely would recommend her!

You're crazy. I'll go to the dentist for you if you have kids for me. Deal?

Ugh Sarah, I just went to the dentist after about a 3 year hiatus (mostly due to being pregnant and then with a newborn, i don't do anything while pregnant or having a newborn). Since I had no excuse now, I went; it was torture. I made them numb my gums and then gripped my legs with the nails-on-the-chalk-board teeth scraping they like to do. At one point, the dental tech asked me if I would rather her just leave the tartar on and let it decay into a cavity. I was like just please do what you have to do so I can leave. On top of this, they had the TV on to news and some story about a young girl giving birth to a baby and trying to get rid of it was on. I about lost it and the tech was like what is wrong. I just asked for her to turn off the TV and she said "oh, I thought your jaw was hurting".
It was horrible. I'd rather get a pap-smear.
