and C is for CRAZY, CRAZY Week!
1 pie crust
6 apples peeled and sliced
1/2 TB apple pie spice (use cinnamon if you do not want to buy any)
1 C sugar, divided
1/2 C flour, divided
1/4 C butter, softened
Put your crust in pie dish and crimp those sides down. Place apples in bowl and mix in 1/2 C sugar, the apple pie spice, and 2 TB flour. Stir them all up together and place in pie crust. In separate bowl combine butter and remaining sugar and flour with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle this on top of apples. Place pie in paper bag to cook. (you can use those ice cream bags at the freezer section of the store). Roll the end of the bag so it is closed and bake pie IN THE BAG at 375 for about an hour. Carefully remove from oven and then from bag. Allow to cool some before digging in with a fork. You might even put a slice on a plate with some ice cream a la mode!
You can wrap the un-baked pie with foil and freeze up to 3 months. Allow to thaw slightly before baking.
In other happenings, Zeb has been quite the little boy this week.
I noticed he was carrying around his sister's lip glosses all day. I asked him why and he said "my flies."
Last night I was trying to get out the door to attend a hand embroidery class when the little man smashed his finger in the front door.
My big girls are sleeping at a cousins house tonight so after I drove them to her house I headed back with only my youngest 5.
Let's see....... crazy week, fussy baby, fewer kids, and long drive home can only mean one thing for this tired mamma!
Thank goodness we have the option to drive through every now and then. Seriously....it saved me from a couple of gray hairs tonight! It also gives me a wee bit more free time to do things like sew...
Well, I have the confidence to try, so I am starting a kitchen towel tonight. I have, in fact, several projects going at once. It is a wee it distracting at times, but at other times it gives me the freedom to move from one project to the next and not get bored. (I can justify it many ways:-)
Gosh, you guys are awesome voting for me! Please vote again...for just a few more days! I have met many wonderful women this week through Circle of Moms and that is AWESOME! I am amazed at the talent and kindness out there across the web, absolutely astounding!
What is on your agenda this weekend? I am going to sew, I hope, and keep my house from getting totally trashed by my young children.
The weather is cooling off and I really need to go through bee hives and make sure they are all ready for winter. Maybe Sunday? We will see.
Have a happy weekend! I hope it makes you smile!
