I had two major life accomplishments yesterday:
1. I cleaned out every last morsel of my Costco sized crunchy pb jar and it wasn’t easy scraping the goodness off the bottom. I will not let any of that gold go to waste. PS Billy didn’t see how this was such a huge accomplishment…. men.
2. I made my very first pie ever without burning myself, cutting my finger off or crying over ruining it.
I really don’t think that granny smith apples are meant to be eaten in any other way than in the form of a pie loaded with cinnamon and sugar.
Okay, so this isn’t a huge accomplishment because basically I bought a crust, threw some apples in and a bunch of crumble goodness on top but at least it kind of looks like I did something admirable. I used THIS recipe.
Each month a group of 6 girls gets together for a themed dinner. Last month we had Greek night and this month the theme was pumpkins and apples. The really cool part about it is that each month we are put in a group of new girls… I knew most of them already but had never really hung out with some of them so it was SO great to get to know them better.
Have you ever eaten your dinner out of a pumpkin? This idea is PURE genius. There was meat, rice and spices cooked in that beautiful little pumpkin and I even ate the majority of the actual pumpkin. I can’t wait to make this for Billy.
Speaking of Billy (I know I really don’t talk about him very much on the blog;) he had dinner on campus at a service project he was doing. I think Webster would define this as salad bar heaven:
Don’t act like you don’t tell your husband to take a pictures of his food when he eats somewhere without you.
For dessert we dug into the apple pie and an incredible chocolate/caramel/oatmeal goodness bar.
Fall foods, I love you.
