Last nights supper consisted of what we call mountain food. Kraut and weiners, pinto beans, fried potatoes, and rolls. Now for those of you who know true mountain food, the rolls should not have been on the menu. The bread of choice of all mountain food is cornbread. I already had the rolls though and decided not to take the time to make cornbread. For dessert we had something new. New for us anyway. Pear Pie. It was very good. I got the recipe from a blogger friend of mine-Thanks Cheryl. I made it just like you would make an apple pie. I put a crumb topping on it and served it with whipped creme. It was very good.
Today will be busy as usual for us. We still have some pears to work up, then start on the apples. We need to pick tomatoes, green beans and blackberries. All that seems a little too ambitious but we’ll see. I think today will be very HOT. Temperature is already 70 and it is only 8:30.
Yes, we have more snow. It is snowing hard and we have gotten about 1 1/2″ already. All our shoveled out places are covered again. I think it is supposed to snow until about 8:00 tonight. I just pray it doesn’t snow too much. We plan on going to Jessica’s this weekend. The last picture shows how hard it is snowing, if you look really close, you can see the barn in the distance.
Changing the subject, here is a picture of a peach pie I made today. Instead of using a pie pan, I put it in one of my cast iron skillets. The peaches were home canned. I just thickened up the juice. The pie crust is really simple. 1/2 cup oil, 1/3 cup milk, 1/4 tsp. salt. Stir this together, then add 2 1/3 cup sifted all purpose flour. Mix together. This will make top and bottom crust. I used the entire dough for a bottom crust as this skillet is fairly large, then I put a crumb topping on the top. I think this need vanilla ice cream on the side. What do you all think? Well, enjoy your day and God bless.
