Menu Monday and a Recipe

 Menu Monday feat. Apple Pie   by Author Carole Brown


Welcome I am super excited you are here today. 

 I have a special feature an   Apple Pie recipe graciously provided by author Carole Brown from her book 

Toni DeLuca’s Yummy Apple Pie


2 cups all purpose flour

½ cup Crisco

6-7 tbsp of water

Cut shortening into flour until it resembles corn meal. Add water, one tbsp at a time. Add more if needed, but be careful not to over soak it. Divide into half, then roll each half into an even circle and place in pie plate.


Apples (I like to heap my filling, but use however many that suits your taste). Peel and slice into first pie crust liner. 

Sugar to taste

Slabs (tsps) of butter (I use about 4-6) placed over the apples

Cinnamon to taste

Sprinkle (LIGHTLY) a touch of vanilla over the filling

Place the second half of the pie crust on top of the filling. Pinch the sides together in whatever simple or elaborate decoration you want. Add top decoration with carved letter, added crust pieces, etc. I usually keep mine simple. Add a sprinkle of sugar on top of crust if desired. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, then turn down oven to 350 degrees and bake until apple pieces are done. Normally about 30 - 40 minutes, and crust is golden brown. 

I’m an adjuster when it comes to cooking. Once I’ve learned how a new recipe goes, I will adjust to suit my (or family’s) taste. I might substitute ingredients or change them according to our likes and dislikes.

And here are my menu plans . . . 

Monday Tuna Casserole (we put Peas in ours), Salad, Dinner Muffins

Tuesday Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans

Wednesday L/O Chicken Parmesan, Salad, Garlic Bread 

Thursday Tuna Steak, Pasta Salad, Fried Mushrooms 

Friday Chicken Tenders, Corn, Fried Okra 

I am looking forward to the meals planned this week.  

And that Pie!   
Wanna see how that Pie turns out?

But don't just come by Friday I have posts planned every day.

Enjoy your week!
