The other day I noticed everyone else was making a page on their blog about St. Patrick's day. I'm not much Irish at all. There is a Bridget O'Brien in my ancestor list. She was long ago and far away, but it is good to know there is something to cheer about on St. Pat's day. These apples had been calling to me to be made into something sweet, and so I did. There was some crust issues that ended with some filling outside of the top crust, but it tasted just fine. It tasted really good and with a slice of cheddar, Lora. It tasted really good with some vanilla ice cream, too.
As you can see I used the other pie bird this time. It hadn't had a chance to be baked in a pie yet. It did its job well. It was the maker of the pie that didn't get the edges crimped properly. However, in all justice these are my first pies. Next week there will be a quiche, because we have all the leftovers to make one and I can't let them go to waste.
Here are our "shamrocks". They came up in a pot...I don't remember buying any and if I did I need to have my head examined for if it gets into the grass there is no getting rid of it at all. Our yard man came yesterday, but there was so much to do this time with all the leaves from the live oak falling we didn't have the heart to ask him to make a bigger effort in the rock garden. I suppose I could have gone out and cleared some of the sweet gum spikey balls out of the picture, but there was other stuff to deal with. One included some ordering some new bedding for the front bedroom and I can tell you right now I can hardly wait for it to get here. I'll post some pictures when it is all done.
Today we went to the store and as we were getting ready to check out these cookies called out to go home with me. Isn't that always the way...the little things taste really great and the little fox has something new to guard now the apples are gone.
Here's wishing you a happy Erin Go Bragh and I'm off to cook some cabbage with some ham and some pretty new potatoes for our dinner. Have a safe and happy weekend.
