Well, I intended to make an apple pie for the first day of Fall, but didn't.
Today, however, I found myself wanting to make that apple pie, so I did. I whipped it up complete w/homemade crust (and store bought innards - hey, I'm a busy lady!).
I pulled it out of the oven, put it on the cooling rack and went about getting dinner into the oven. Along about this time, I hear the stampede of little feet coming down the stairs and Mr. E appears in the kitchen exclaiming:
"What is THAT?!"
I calmly reply...or begin to when he exclaims... " A pie! Where'd that come from?"
Again, calm as a cucumber, I tell him that I made the pie.
Mr. E looks at me with disbelief and utters one...little....word: "You?" then charges out of the kitchen to see what is going on with his sister in the den where she is plugged into the Wii.
I stood there for a few moments and thought to myself.....I need to make more pies!
:) What has your child been astounded that you've done lately? What kind of pies are you in the mood to make now that it's starting to really feel like Fall?
