After our return home I went out with the missionaries briefly. Then I babysat grandkids for the rest of the afternoon while Linda delivered Nancy Sweet's suitcase to the airport. I took advantage of Linda's temporary absence to bake three pies, two cherry and one pumpkin. I used some of the pie cherries that Beth had given me on Monday. The rest of the pie cherries are in the dehydrator. I have to admit that the lower protein flour I've been using for biscuits also makes pretty good pie crust. The crust is much more tender than it was when I used all-purpose flour in my pie crusts.
It was obvious that I hadn't eaten dinner before my trip to the library. I came home with four cookbooks. One on pies, the chicken cookbook, a bread cookbook, and a book full of jam recipes.
|Somewhat out of focus, but still a pretty cherry pie|
|Luna endorsed the pumpkin pie as "very good"|
