Busy Monday

First we had to pre-cook the apples and let them cool. Then I made the pie dough and chilled it for an hour. I found this recipe in the October 2014 issue of Canadian House and Home ; I had to try it because it's for The Best-Ever Apple Pie. The pie crust is great but I should have cooked the apples longer as some were still crunchy.

Finally captured on film, the new visitor to our feeder.

Decided to try and make our own granola and came upon this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction. As it bakes it fills the house with the scent of almonds and vanilla. It's great tasting; can't wait to try it with milk or yoghurt.

It has been years since we made Chinese Chicken. The chicken is baked in a bath of honey, soy sauce, ketchup, and garlic. Always served with rice and a crisp green salad. Great stuff!

Everything looks scrumptious!!
When I make apple pie, the apples aren't crunchy, least I don't think so. Anyway it looks great, love the little hearts.
Chinese Chicken, boy, I could use that recipe.
Lovely little visitor there too!
