Our neighbors at the end of the block are in Greece and while away, they gave us permission to raid their apple tree. As we were walking up our block I told the girls to only get as much as they could carry. Whoa! These girls could carry a lot.
These apples are small but pack a delectable punch and they look beautiful arranged in a large bowl in the middle of the kitchen island. I used about half of what we picked to bake two apples pies, 1 for us and 1 for our neighbors.
The new word in our house is a la mode. Every time my girls ask for a snack they now say, "May we have it a la mode?" Tis true, everything is better with ice-cream, but nothing is yummier than a large scoop of ice-cream oozing over an even larger slice of apple pie.
