"Her children rise up and call her blessed..." Proverbs 31:28
I really hadn't planned to write about my mother today...but somehow I haven't been able to get away from the memories...so I may as well put it into writing...
It all started when my husband suggested that I make some homemade applesauce today, and he proceeded to peel and cut up the apples. Since he was doing the hardest part...I suggested that perhaps I should just make an apple pie instead of applesauce. We then took a vote of all the family members present...two of our adult sons and us...and as you can imagine, everyone voted for pie! Therefore I proceeded to take stock of my ingredients to make sure I had everything I needed...and of course I just happened to have everything...so there was no getting out of it today!
|My Mom---Always enthusiastically baking|
pies for every holiday...even the 4th of July!
This weekend (in 2012 when this was written) happens to be the 6th anniversary (now, in 2017, it has been 11 years) of my mother's passing on to glory...and as I stood at my kitchen counter rolling out the pie dough I couldn't help but think about the fact that I was, in my own way, carrying on her legacy. Not that my pies will ever be as spectacular as hers...but they will be a way that I can honor her memory and continue the tradition of making something extra special for my family to enjoy.
|This Coconut Cream Pie, baked from my mother's recipe, was an afterthought today, when I |
realized I had made too much pie crust for one pie! It was a
delightful afterthought, I might say!
|My husband definitely gave the Coconut Cream Pie a Thumbs Up!|
|Mmmm...Apple pie---fresh out of the oven...almost as|
good as Mama's!
|Anybody want some pie? Y'all come!|
