Apple Pies in Frankfort, 2015
Today, Liz and I trekked to Frankfort for a family tradition: making apple pies. To clarify though: it’s usually Liz, Julie, Katie, and Savannah that do the actual pie making. Bob and I usually hang out and watch TV the whole time. We do our part.
Before things got going, I was out in back with Bob – admiring the colors of the leaves in the tree, at the South end of the house (we were chatting when Katie showed up).
The main ingredients!

So – Bob and I actually did more than just watch TV the whole day. We went out and got the ice cream. So I think it’s safe to say that we did 50% of the work.
The apple pie was delicious, as always. Final count: 22 (which interestingly enough was the same count from 2014).
