I can only hope the skies get it all out of their system and let me have my weekend...dry.
I am on here again, basically, to gloat. No, not really. Well....maybe a little. :-)
After a picnic in the mechanics yard while we got our car inspected, a visit to Matt's work, an extended trip to the bank, and then to the grocery store, we FINALLY got home at 3:00. That was WAY longer than I wanted to be gone. ARGH! (Needless to say, I was a WEE bit stressed.) Now comes the happy part: In three hours I finished... TEN pies. I am a hot and sweaty pig. And I am tired. But I am happy. The secret to success? I did myself a HUGE favor and bought premade piecrusts. Wow-since I always make the crusts myself, I had NO idea how much time it really takes to do so! Boy was this a SERIOUS shortcut!
You may be asking-WHERE were the children during her pie-making expedition. To that, I have only to ask, "Children? WHAT children??"
No really, for about an hour they took a later-than-usual nap and then when Matt got home, he took them outside to play (Wonderful MAN!)
So-here is my bake sale list THUS far. And as it seems right now, the list of things we will be eating OURSELVES in the next week or two.
2 Lemonade Pies
2 Butter Pecan Pumkin Ice cream pies
2 Strawberry Rhubard Pies
2 Creamy Peach Pies
2 Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pies
About a gazillion Jumbo Molasses cookies
A Dozen Spiced Apple Butter muffins
2 loaves Tropical Banana bread
A dozen iced cinnamon rolls
I also have a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge now...
I sure hope this weather CLEARS up. As nice as it would be to have these treats in the freezer for last minute entertaining and such...I want to make some MONEY! Especially after all that work!
PLEASE STOP RAINING!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
