a new england apple pie day

This chalkboard is in my kitchen and it was FREE! (I love that word)
Today,  I decided to bake an olde fashioned New England apple pie.  I went to the Brookfield Orchards the other day and bought a bag of super tart apples.  *Sour Face*  So, I started Fall early.
Fresh, cut apples awaiting the spices
Ooey, gooey yumminess!

Lemon zest, butter, and now it just needs a blanket of pastry

Ready for the oven

It's ready! Can you smell it?  If only I had smellivision!

My son captured my first bite of apple pie for Fall 2010
