Yesterday I took advantage of a cool morning to do some baking. When we went apple picking I saw in the little store at that U-pick farm that they sell pies, frozen and unbaked, for 10.95 for a 2-crust pie and a dollar more for the crumble topping. Very briefly I was tempted but then I thought about how horrified my Mennonite ancestors would be if I paid such a price for A PIE. All this to say I made an apple pie with crumble topping and it is delicious, if I say so myself. I also made cherry crisps in ramekins . That little bit on the plate was just using up the remainder of the pie dough.
Does anyone else cook up pie filling then let it cool before dumping it into the raw pie crust? I always do that but haven't heard of anyone else who does.
The only other thing out of the ordinary yesterday was cleaning the gutters and soffits on the east side of the house. They were very dirty and youngest son had no trouble at all power washing them. So good to get that done before winter.
It's Labour Day weekend in Canada. Not that that makes much difference to us retired ones. Every weekend is a long weekend or maybe I should say life is now one long long weekend. I'm not complaining. I find lots of things to fill my days.
Thanks for visiting today,
I hope you're enjoying a lovely peaceful Sunday. G.M.
