I must confess, it rained and stormed all day yesterday, and still it rains. Oh, that’s not my confession. My confession is that I didn’t get a single thing done in the yard, unless you count picking apples…and it’s not likely I’ll get anything done out there today, either!
I baked. I baked all day. Apple and pear pies and a crisp.
I must confess I don’t much care for apple pies. I know it’s terribly unAmerican of me, but I don’t care much for hot dogs, either, and my patriotism seems to die off from the loathsome sport of baseball.
I must confess, I adore pears so much more — fresh, baked, caramelized, even canned!
I must confess, I prefer apple crisps to apple pies. It’s the crisp part, isn’t it?
I prefer to eat only the edges of brownies as well.
While my family prefers the tender carrots and potatoes from the center of a roast, I must confess, I would rather scrape the caramelized dregs from the sides of the pan for myself.
I will bake two more apple-only pies today, because after those two, I must confess, I will be out of pie pans.
Sadly, I won’t be out of apples.
I may make some applesauce…
If only I knew how to can, I would try my hand at apple butter, because The Mister’s aunt makes the best apple butter in the world, which, I must confess, I stopped to eat yesterday, along with biscuits I made Friday.
I’d like to bake some Challah, but I must confess, I’ve only got about eight cups of flour left, so that will hafta wait.
Next weekend, I thought I’d try my hand at a cushaw/kershaw pie, since this enormous lovely squash was given to me.
I saw a recipe for a galette, using squash, caramelized onions and Feta, which I must confess, made my mouth water while I read it.
Yesterday, some friends came by to drop off a starter for Amish Friendship Bread, which I must confess, is one of my all-time favorite things to eat! Only six more days til the baking part!
Soon, those pumpkins on my front porch will be hollowed-out for carving, and I’m hoping there’s enough meat to make a few pies, because I must confess, I live for punkin pie!
