As American as Apple Pie
Yesterday at my house was as American as apple pie. Mostly because my house was filled with apple pie. If you remember from yesterday’s post, my wife, Sharon, bought a bag of apples from the farm market with the promise she would make apple pies. Last night she kept that promise.
I, being a thoughtful husband, even was nice enough to set up a table in the living room so she could watch TV while making the apple pies.
It’s nice to have a 6 foot folding table when you need one. Unfortunately we don’t have a portable oven (yet) so she had to leave the living room while she put them in the oven, checked on them, and removed them from the oven. We do however own a DVR so I was able to pause the television so she didn’t miss any of the shows we were watching. I told you I was thoughtful!
While she prepped the pies I kept my self busy cooking chicken wings. Not only a favorite of ours but also high in protein to keep her productive.
Don’t worry, I let her get the pies into the oven before I bothered her with freshly fried chicken wings.
The pies turned out great. I personally tasted them as soon as they cooled enough to eat. I even, being thoughtful again, made a trip to the store to get whipped cream and ice cream to top the fresh apple pie.
Our oven will only hold two pies at a time. We do need to upgrade. So it took awhile but she made four beautiful apple pies.
So to sum it up. She made four great apple pies. I fried a big bowl of chicken wings. I went to the store to buy whipped cream and ice cream. I set up the table. She didn’t miss any TV.
I am such a good husband!
And my reward?
