Sunday, Dan cooked us our own Thanksgiving dinner. I love to cook our own turkey so we have left-overs. I also love my Grandmom's stuffing recipe. So, Katie and I made the stuffing and Dan did the rest. Dan even made my apple pie recipe. It was so delicious. It was still hot when we ate it with a scoop of vanilla ice cram on top....YUM!
Our Best Friends spent the long weekend at Jeff's parents in Fenwick, Delaware. They came home Sunday afternoon so we invited them over for our Thanksgiving part 2. We had a wonderful meal with our friends. Katie was in charge of asking everyone what they were thankful for. It was very nice.
After dinner we played the High School Musical soundtrack and Katie put on a "show". She loves to hide behind the sliding glass door curtain and be introduced. She comes out from behind the curtain and puts on a show for us. Bailey and Brady joined the fun and the next thing I know we were all dancing. The neighbors behind us probably would think we were nuts if they could see us through the window.
Picture of Dan's apple pie
1 pie shell
7-8 Tart Apples(I use a few different apples, granny smith, fuji, and macintosh)
1 cup sugar
2 TBSP flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 TBSP butter
Peel and slice apples and mix above ingredients.
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter softened
Mix together with hands to form crumbs.
Depending on the size of my pie plate sometimes I need to double the crumb topping mixture to cover the pie.
Place pie shell on bottom of pie plate. Put apple mixture on top of pie shell and then top with crumb topping mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes.
Enjoy the little video of Katie, Brady, and Bailey dancing. Don't mind my BIG mouth ;)
