A Few Snowstorms Later
Dec 11, 2013
December gets really busy huh? I haven’t had a good chance to sit down and update until tonight. So basically there have been ice & snowstorms. I’ve also become a recluse since completing my Christmas shopping. I refuse to go to certain shopping center until after the New Year now!
Last Friday I saw Septime Webre’s The Nutcracker at Warner Theater. I bought tickets for early December because I wanted it to sorta launch that Christmas Cheer feeling for the season. It was excellent. There’s a colonial twist to the entire ballet and George Washington is The Nutcracker haha! I figured it would be the most DC THING I could ever see.
I also made these impromptu mini apple pies with leftovers. I felt bad throwing out an unused extra pie crust from Thanksgiving and had a single apple in the fruit bowl. I figured to hell with it and gave making mini pies a shot! They turned out GREAT! I am boasting because I suck at cooking. I can hardly follow recipes correctly so making something like this “on the fly” impresses me alright! :)
I ended up with enough dough and apple mix to make 4 of these things. There’s no recipe or anything to share. I just threw in spices and butter pretty much. I think I’m definitely going to be doing this again. It’s way easier than making a huge stupid pie.
