Apple Pie Kit

A friend of ours gave us some apples, a big bag of tart green apples, perfect for apple pie. I used some in baked oatmeal but there were too many to eat all at once. I decided to try out a trick another friend told me about, apple pie kits to go in the freezer. I prepared the apples as I normally would for an apple pie but instead of baking them right away I put the pie filling into freezer bags. I now have two apple pie kits in my freezer, ready to go. I just have to thaw, put into a crust and bake.

I'm lazy and don't peel my apples when I bake a pie! I slice and core them. This time I decided to chop the apples into smaller pieces.

I don't use a recipe when making pies, I just do everything to taste. In this case add enough sugar and cinnamon to sweeten the apples and a little flour to thicken the juices.

Place each bowl full (about 2.5 to 3.5 apples) into a freezer bag until you are ready to use. Thaw, place in pie crust and bake.

I mentioned in my last post that I got to spend a weekend out at the coast scrapbooking with friends. I wanted to share with you what I got accomplished that weekend (besides laughing and eating WAY TOO MUCH!) :-)

I'm still here!

I just wanted to say "HI!" I got to have a weekend away two weekends ago to scrapbook with friends at the beach, what a fun time!

But since I have been back it has been go, go! Getting ready for Halloween and keeping up with the family. I have lots of things I want to share with you. Will post them as soon as I can or rather, when the family will let me! :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

My girls and our red chair

This summer my dear friend Heidi over at Blue Eyed Blessings took some wonderful pictures of our girls. You can hardly tell but we were just in our back yard and used one of my favorite red chairs.

Today I'm participating in Wordless Wednesday and Rednesday!
