We Are Making Pies

Sharon and I are busy making pies today. I have worked hard at it. I drove her to the farmers market for more apples. I took her to Big Lots for more pie plates. I even took her to lunch at A&W.

Now for the real work – setting up the table in the living room so we can watch Person of Interest while she peels apples and assembles previous mentioned pies. Did I mention she put pumpkin pies in the oven while I set up the table?

Making Thanksgiving Pies

Of course, it sounds like she isn’t doing much but that is because I am writing this and it’s my prerogative to make me sound better than I really am.

The pies filled with apples.

Notice under the pie plates is a perfectly staged folding table which I put up.

Apple pies fresh from the oven and ready for Thanksgiving.

apple pie is my favorite but our son Christopher is more of a Thanksgiving traditionalist. His favorite is pumpkin pie so of course his mother made a coupleĀ  of those too.

So Sharon baked five pies and now she has a cheese cake in the oven just in case five pies is not enough for the 7 people we are expecting. Of course in our house you never know who may stop by for pie on a cold Thanksgiving night.


And she knows how I hate to be short on apple pie on holidays.
