I am in the baking/cooking mode right now. Sewing was last week, baking/cooking this week. Good timing right? Today we worked on some pies, but first we had to start out our day with a breakfast favorite...banana pancakes.
I used to make them more often before Ella started school and before we actually had to be out the door by a certain time.
Ella ate 6 pancakes...seriously. Sometimes I can barely get her to eat a bean, so I'm not complaining.
This guy had 4 1/2, which is about his norm.
Next we were off to grandma's (my mom's) house to bake some pies. We made a couple of pecan pies. I have never made one before and it was surprisingly easy. Making the crust was the longest step. I tried Pioneer Woman's pecan pie recipe and it turned out looking and smelling SO delicious. Haven't had the taste test yet...I almost cheated.
Next up was a French apple...or is it Dutch? What's the difference? Anyways, it's an apple pie with a crumb topping. This picture is pre-baked, but still looking yummy.
Sorry mom, this was the only picture that I took of you.
We had such a good time hanging out together and the kid's had fun hanging out with their cousin. We even had time for a nice walk to enjoy the fall weather. I love it, even though I am always cold.
These are my favorite types of days.
I love you mom and am so thankful for you.
