I have two pies in the oven right now. It felt like everything went according to plan this time. Crusts didn't give me trouble. Got up at 7:30 a.m., threw dishes in the dishwasher so I had clear counters, and headed off to the Denny's Whole Foods to pick up ingredients. I like the layout of that store. The one on Roosevelt (or thereabouts) is much more crammed in. Got my stuff and was back by 8:45 a.m. Made my crust dough, threw them in the fridge to chill for a bit, and started preparing the apples and pears. Got all that done, and rolled out the crusts, filled the pies, and popped them in the oven at 10:30 a.m. Which is about when I knew I had to have them in if I was going to leave here at noon to pick up Melana and Felicia. One hour forty five minutes for two pies including prep work. Now I shower and look pretty while the pies are baking.
Have fun at Losers' Lunch folks! I'll be back next week.
