I still get my hair cut by Deborah at Salon Excellence in Waltham, been going there almost ten years, she's so great! It's me and a bunch of little old ladies getting their curlers set. I love it. Anyway, it's not far from where my folks live so I went to see them today and have some lunch. After lunch, mom baked pies for Christmas.
Here are three videos I made, turn the volume up, press the "play" arrow and join us in the pie making experience!
She makes her crusts from scratch:
I cut up all the Granny Smith apples, mom's mom was my Granny Smith, and my MIL is also a Granny Smith! (But my husband and I are only related by our marriage, we checked ;)
Wheat sheaf, the Farr family pie crest:
That pie is for the grandkids (all in their twenties now!) Mom and I don't eat sugar or wheat so she also makes these lovely open face pies on nut crusts, like big tarts, blueberry and apple, mmmm. We can have as much whipped cream as we like, we just have to whip it. Whip it real good. We used to do it with the manual beater and lots of elbow grease, but I'm bringing the electric mixer tomorrow, I'm not foolin' around.
We are just glad to be able to spend time together for whatever reason. Grateful is what we are.
Peace to you all!
