this post, I used a box mix (Gluten free pantry) for my crust but you could use any pie crust for this. Whip up the pie filling just like you would for a double crust pie recipe, fill little mason jars nearly to the top, use a biscuit cutter for your crust and make sure to cut out a tiny air hole in the center. (I used a little star shape) Then lay the crust on the filling, brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. (I brush with milk for berry pies... I like both ways so do whatever floats your boat.) Bake in a 350 oven for about 30 minutes until your house smells good and the crust is golden.
I used little gingham oilcloth rounds to decorate the tops, some bakers twine and those obnoxious little wood spoons in ice cream cups from the grocery store. (For some reason, I had several still in their wrappers. Fortuitous.)
Salad: Fill a bowl with spinach and drizzle it with Trader Joes' Balsamic glaze. Set aside.
Shrimp: Toss 2 TBSP lime juice, 2 TBSP minced garlic, salt, pepper, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/8 cup chopped cilantro, and 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes. Toss shrimp to coat and then grill.
Topping: 1/2 cup papaya mango salsa from Trader Joes, handful of sliced cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, 1 avocado chopped, and 1/4 red onion finely chopped.
Names of God Christmas tree garlands.
I also forgot how cute they were. FYI I used two garlands on my tree. My tree was huge though. My man likes to bring home the Griswold family tree each year. Little full. Lotta sap.I *think* I will be making another batch in mid to late October... but I make no promises. The skin on my fingers feels like it's rubbed off with all that hand stamping! You can get yours in my shop.
an after school snack. Oh she's such a stinker. And she peed on my rug again last night! I mean she has her own jar of treats, a bell, and a huge yard full of corn. You think she'd be happy enough not to pee on my striped Ikea rug. Wouldn't you?
I guess I'm going to go decorate my front porch with corn stalks now. Yippee. (Thanks for the nudge Daisy. You stinker pup, you!)
