Picking Apples, Baking Pies…

“Nothing is really work unless you’d rather be doing something else.” ~  Peter Pan (James Barrie)

Last night, after driving 10+ hours from Kentucky, I had visions of collapsing in bed early.  I didn’t get to bed until 2 a.m.!

Our son the chef and his friends spent the Columbus Day holiday picking apples in the afternoon, so they didn’t get back to the city until 9ish, bringing with them visions of baking pies.  It’s impossible to sleep in a house filled with the scent of  apple pie baking in the oven.  They made four!

An extra yummy apple pie!

While the pies baked, they put the extra apples to good use.

Sometime close to midnight we gathered in the kitchen for apple pie and ice cream — and a dollop of warm apple butter.   One can’t just flop in bed after this kind of indulgence, so I grabbed a good book…





  1. Ummm, how I would LOVE a piece of that pie right about now! What fun…
