Which explains the pie. Frank was very helpful with the shlepping - and I promised to pay in the form of Apple-baked-goods. Turnovers and pie sounded good to me - even though I can't even eat them...
This was the first time I even latticed a pie and I think it came out fairly nicely. I got rave reviews too - so I'll have to keep this filling recipe somewhere safe. I'm pretty sure that I'll be making it again at some point.
This morning we wandered over to The FamBily House in time for lunch. We spent the whole day there enjoying the company and the atmosphere. It's quiet without Phil (she went back to school on Thursday), and will be quieter still this coming week since Frank will be heading out to school too. Timmy is also moving out - he's not going far, but with his work schedule I'm not sure how often we'll really be seeing him.
Last week was a hard one for a lot of family and friends.
I hope that this week brings comfort and healing.
I'm around if you need me.
