Apple Pie

Contrary to what my blog title suggests, I have never baked an apple pie. Shocking, I know. I’m honestly not a huge fan. There are many other cakes, pies, and other deserts that I’d rather have.

However, one of my fall bucket list items was to bake my first ever apple pie, so that’s what I did on Sunday afternoon. I used a recipe called Best Apple Pie Ever from the The Complete Canadian Living Cookbook, and it did not disappoint.

Fig. 1: Don’t judge this apple pie by the way it looks…trust me, it was amazing.

I often find apple pie too sweet, so using Granny Smith apples kept that at bay. I’m very happy with the result, and might do it again sometime!

As for the rest of the bucket list, we’ve done the family portraits, had an awesome Thanksgiving dinner (which DH made this year), celebrated Evan’s birthday with a cake and small party, dressed up Evan for Halloween and attended a local street party/parade, went to a pumpkin patch, have taken walks, and played in the leaves. I’m not sure if DH and I will be able to take a day or two off together, and I have not cast-on for a sweater for Evan.

How is your fall going?

  1. I think my fall is going better than I hoped. Although, one more weekend trip and some more museum trips are definietly needed. (I think I'll call the Thanksgiving going away as a weekend trip…. sort of cheating…. ^^)

    What's a cast-on?? Or is that what I would call “when you have put up all the yarn on the needles and can start knitting?”

    Good luck on the “taking a day off with DH”!! I think that sounds like a great thing and good for all three of you (mom and dad happy times!!)


  2. Looks yummy! I haven't had time for much baking myself, but did manage to salvage some old bananas by making banana bread this past weekend. Might be the most I get done this year…


  3. Chall – I think Thanksgiving going away counts as a trip! And, yes, that's exactly what casting-on is.

    Mandy – one thing at a time, right? πŸ™‚


  4. Hey Alyssa, look over there ————–>

    YOINK!!! OM NOM NOM NOM NOM [burp]

    What pie?


  5. Ricardipus – that took me a while to figure out what you were trying to get me to look at. Sometimes I wonder about my brain! I hope you enjoyed the pie πŸ™‚


  6. There is no pie. There never was. I don't know nuffink. Society is to blame.
