When guys go shopping...

I completed my Thanksgiving food shopping and had that peaceful 'whew, I'm out of that mob scene' feeling-you know the one... Out of the blue the boys said they'd like an apple pie with raisins for Turkey Day, so I said I'll make the pie if you get the apples:@) Ma didn't raise no dummy!
 They showed up with seven of these monsters!!! Some of these apples were close to 4" across! 
I promptly sent two home with them to munch on and had more than enough for a plump pie.
Thanksgiving is about abundance after all, isn't it!

My tip for today: Change up your favorite apple pie by adding a hearty handful of raisins.

Have a happy day:@)

  5. I like big apples, peel one and get a lot of apple! Because of stupid Sandy, we couldn't pick our big apples this year. I had to buy puny ones. I like the ones that weigh almost a lb each!
    Happy Thanksgiving, L!
    I've caught up here, you have been cooking up a storm!

  9. Who could resist those shiny apples? I can just see them standing in the supermarket asking each other how many apples should we get...

    Happy Thanksgiving Lynn for our house to yours.

  16. And just like a great Mom, you made those boys the pie they wanted!! I'll bet it tasted wonderful, too. I'd just as soon peel a big apple than have to peel many tiny ones. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful...yummy apple pie and all.
