Some days it is easier to get lots of things done and that was one of those days. I had to be finished before Lynette's birthday party at 1pm. It was cancelled the week before because she had the 'flu. It was a nicer day and all the girls could come this week. They had a treasure hunt and played outside. So, I baked, decorated a cake layer and a cookie, cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed made koolaid, planned and set the treasure hunt, and had the laundry done except for the folding. When the girls arrived I sat down in my nice clean house and ripped out my current knitting project because I didn't like it and started again and had a LOVELY afternoon knitting. My favorite way to spend a Saturday.

Some days I feel like baking and Saturday was one of those days. I had apples to use up and Lynette had been begging for apple pie so I thought I would make some. The mixer arm I broke has been replaced by a new one from ebay that needed some minor repairs and greased so I was too lazy to make mom's good pie crust recipe by hand so I just used one from the cookbook. I remember why I don't use any other recipe besides Mom's. Rerolling the crust makes it TOUGH! Mom's doesn't. The first little pies I made were perfect, but the eating the last ones was like chewing on shoe leather. I made pumpkin bread, but I wasn't impressed. I woule rather eat pie. I like zucchini bread, period. I made apple crisp, too, and put most of this stuff in the freezer. We had the last little apple pie for breakfast this morning.
