another pie

Good afternoon.
Yesterday was an unbelievably windy day.  We had sustained winds of around 45 with one gust measured at 84! Never seen wind like that! Put away the outside furniture and fortunately no wind damage or power lost here although 45,000 lost it in the valley.
So, it was a good day to stay inside and since I did so good on the first pie, I thought I'd try another. A neighbor had given us a couple of apples. They were Rome apples and they were huge! We hadn't gotten around to eating them so I thought I'd try another pie since frozen pie crusts come 2 to a package.

Found a recipe online and went to work.
Did a crumb topping again.
Popped it in the oven and waited....
And here's the finished pie. It was very good! And pretty easy to make.
Then for dinner we had some comfort food. Tacos!
And again, they were good. And yes, we each ate 5!
Today was still windy, but not near as windy as yesterday. I did manage to get a walk in and spent a good part of it house cleaning.
Well, that's all for now.


  1. Crazy windy. We get that here, sometimes. It happened when we were in California, too.
    Congratulations on the pie, it looks great!
    What is that rack you use for your tacos? Looks pretty handy!
    Glad nothing happened to you in the storm. We get ours tomorrow evening, night and Monday morning.

  2. We had huge winds in Palm Springs too. We are not there but found out our fireplace stack fell over. A new one will need to be built. Thank goodness it didn't fall off, just leaned against another part of the house. They say we had 90 mph wind gusts. A neighbor lost a plate glass window and a couple of Palm Trees fell over in the neighborhood.

    We'll have make lemonade out of lemons.....
