Remember seeing your first robin this spring?
Remember seeing your tulips struggling to pop out of the frozen ground?
Remember the bright green leaves budding out of the trees?
got their late summer blush on them!:
And then all the THUD's added up.....
I got revenge.
I gathered them all up.
I peeled them.
I added cinnamon, sugar and thickeners.
And I stuck the little buggers in the oven...
for about an hour.
And I got THIS:
The beginning of another great season===
apple pie season!
Our apples are not hybrid.
They are tart, like old farm orchard apples.
The kind where you bite into them and all of your taste buds come alive
and make your mouth water.
Best of all?
They are FREE.
And they keep us in apple pies until almost Thanksgiving.
(I have a lot of apple trees!)
The only thing saving me, is that I have to go outside almost every day and gather them up from the ground and bag them up so they don't spoil on the ground.
So...how many calories do you think that takes versus eating one teeny, tiny piece of apple pie???
I am in denial.
Don't tell me.......!!!
