Laundry on the Line and Homemade Pie Crust

My daughter is living with us temporarily until her apartment is ready for occupancy. Today is the first day in a week that we didn’t do something related to the move. It felt good to catch up with my own laundry (hanging out is fabulous) and I did some grocery shopping. My own stuff. Her three children are here so I had a number of hands helping me to throw a pie together for a pot-luck tomorrow. Rhubarb junk pie, my own invention. A normal rhubarb pie and I throw in any other fruit in hand. Today we added a few rasberries, blueberries, strawberries and a sliced peach. Once I added canned pineapple and people loved the surpise when they bit into it.

I showed Ana how to make a pie crust:

1. take the crusts out of the box
2. slide one crust out of the wax paper tube, unroll it and put it in the pie tin
3. after putting the filling in that crust, do the same with the other wrapped crust
lay it on top of the pie and tuck the edges under the bottom crust.

People love my homemade crust.

  1. Do you have any favorite recipes that were Aunt Frannie’s? Or was she ‘known’ for making anything special? Eileen and I have mom’s cookbook and she was known for her homemade bread.
    I hope you have happy memories of special gatherings.

    1. Ooh, I didn’t know that about Aunt Betty. My mom’s specialties were German potatoe salad and German or Sweet and Sour green bean casserole. I think they were pretty much the same except one had potatoes and the other beans. I will share the recipe…maybe tomorrow’s blog.
