Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I'm so excited for the cooler weather and slower days.
I have a tall stack of books to read and later collection of new teas.
Several balloons flew over before the Balloon Fest.
Not the prettiest apple pie I've ever made, but it was eaten so fast it didn't matter!
We went to pick apples here and had an excess of sweet, tasty apples that were begging to be cooked. I have tried a few recipes and most are full of unnecessary sugar. This simple recipe will make a delicious pie and doesn't require extra sugar or take all day to make.
I also bought a vegan pie crust and to make it even simpler. I used a large 10.5 deep dish pie plate, but you can adjust this simple recipe to fit your needs.
Simple Vegan Apple Pie
2 Prepared vegan pie crusts
2 pounds apples
2 cups natural vegan apple sauce (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350' (read the instructions on your pie crust)
Place one pie crust in the bottom of your pie pan.
Peel and cut your apples into thin slices.
Transfer apples into a medium bowl, sprinkle in spices and stir to coat.
Place coated apples in pie crust, add apple sauce till almost full and place the top pie crust over the apples.
Seal the edges, and cut small steam slices in top crust and gently brush with vegan butter.
Bake for for 50-60 minutes or until the apples are tender.
Allow to sit for 20+ minutes before cutting.
Roadtrips later in the year mean finding fun at home this summer.
July has been about fresh fruit, eating healthier, and catching up with old friends. (Okay, primarily online, but still.)
I tried blackberry smoothies, baked way too much and also did a bit of gardening. I'm still looking for a good summer read, as I power through my TBR pile of books and is it me, or is there NOTHING on TV right now??
It hasn't been a bad month, just rather uneventful.
Catch up with you soon~
I'm not sure how, but June is almost gone!
I hope you are enjoying your summer and finding time to explore your world. I have about 1,000 photos to sort, edit and hopefully post in July.
See you at the airport!
Now I have to read the book.....
Are you watching the series too?
Sakura is the national flower of Japan, the cherry blossom – translated into Sakura, represents a time of renewal and optimism. The proud pink blossoms mark the end of winter and signify the beginning of spring. Due to their quick blooming season, cherry blossoms also symbolize the transience of life, which is a major theme in Buddhism.
I believe mine are ornamental plum but they are still a very pretty way to welcome Spring!
We had snow last week and you can see the blooms are not as intense or colorful as normal, but still, nature finds a way.
Enjoy your weekend!
Okay, it might be wishful thinking as we had snow on the 16th, lol But the calendar says Spring is here and I'm going with it!
Hope you have an amazing Spring where ever you are in the world!
I will be back soon with more reviews and maybe some actual trip pictures!
