apple pie

it’s rainy and 46 degrees out today.

i decided it is about time to clear out the fridge and pantry. i find apples…. just a little on the wrinkly side. then i decide to bake…. very unlike me.....

percy is monitoring the garden for the heron who is stalking our pond fish and opal is in the land of nod.

so i bake.

thank you to the food network’s ‘mom’s harvest apple pie’. i am only missing the orange zest and cranberries but i am happy to make use of our huge walnut stash and aging raisins.

oh and yes i did use frozen pie crust (but hey, it was in the freezer and it only lasts up to 2 months).

So adorable. I love the decorations on the crust. I am lucky if the thing doesn't explode on me, but you decorate! And it's so pretty :) No shame in frozen pie crust, btw.

Oh I want to go there! It sounds amazing. I have my eye on the cassoulet. Guess I will have to be there on a Monday. Do you have cowboy boots? I suspect you do. I am not sure I could pull them off.
