I’m making an apple and a pumpkin pie for or Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. I also signed up to make an apple pie for the free Thanksgiving dinner sponsored by my church and other community organizations & businesses on Thursday. Tonight was apple pie baking night. I THOUGHT I had enough apples to make 2 pies (8 cups per pie) but I didn’t. I am thankful that Mike ran to Fareway in the foggy fog to get more apples for me.

I, however, am NOT thankful that I just burned myself trying to put a foil wrapper around the crust of one of my pies to protect it from overbrowning…AND that I wore a black sweatshirt which is now covered in flour dust. THANKFULLY it’s an old Iowa Hawkeyes sweatshirt so no harm was done!
