Lemon and Blueberry Cream Pie

This is so easy to make it is almost embarrassing.  Almost.

It tastes so great that I can live with the shame.

I used chocolate graham crumbs to make my crust because I had them, though I prefer the regular graham crust.  I also added a little extra lemon juice, just because.

This was made on the same day as a chocolate cake, and that makes me a very bad person.  But I can live with that, too.  We had a guest, and you need a choice of dessert when you have guests.  It’s the law.
