Balanced diet

If I hadn’t done so many hours of work beforehand and then so many hours of work afterwards, I might have enough remaining brain cells to question the wisdom of taking the children apple-picking and then returning home to allow them a dinner of copious amounts of bacon drowning in artificial maple syrup and garnished with french toast.

But I did so I don’t.

Instead, all I have is this:
1) Work. Hard. Tired.
2) Mmmm… hog fat.
3) Pie or crisp?

    Pie or crisp? Yes please!

    Are dumplings out of the question?

  2. Sharkey

    Regarding #3: BOTH!

    What a silly question! Oh, and Jenn has a good idea with the dumplings too.

  3. Mom

    Turnovers, I say!. And apple jelly, which magically produces apple butter, free for the making. Yum. I will upload my apple corer/parer/peeler.

    What’s a little hog fat among friends?

    Pie AND crisp. And then pie again.

    Crisp, crisp and only crisp. Why waste calories on pastry when you could put them into brown sugar topping? Mmmmm…..

    Before I eat anything at your house, however, I want to know the exact whereabouts of that owl pellet. Just for my own sanity, you understand.

    Crisp! No wait! Pie! No wait! Crisp! Ah heck, you decide and just let me know when I can come pick mine up! ;)

  7. Mija

    Mmmmm… bacon…

  8. ben

    Are we out of pop tarts?

  9. DebR

    Crisp, dahling, always Crisp.

  10. Jessie

    Pie. And crisp. Yum! I’m going to have to go buy some apples now.

  11. Betsy

    Crisp. Faster, easier, foolproof.
    It’ll leave you more time for pig fat and/or sleep…

  12. Cyndi

    OMG *swooning with yummm* Criiiiissp!! *whispering* is there ice cream, too?

    I made a whole boatload of apple crisp last week, and went around being the Apple Crisp Fairy. It was fun. Now I just have to get my dishes back. But, I might have made pie if I knew how to make pastry. But I don’t. So…? Yeah, make both! Make pies, and then without baking, freeze them and bake em later! When everyone is not sick of apples! Tada! (My friend has an apple tree; that’s where I got all of mine)
