I began by preparing the pie because we over grew one of our zucchini’s. I would much rather pick them smaller because they are more tender that way but often the monster zucchini will grow overnight or so it seems. Aunt Judy has a solution for that, she calls it “zucchini cobler” I had written and asked for the recipe and she remembered and brought it to me on one of her visits down South. My favorite part, it’s in her handwriting. I did a modified version, I’m calling it “Summer Mock Apple Pie” I used Mrs. Osgarrds pie crust recipe because it’s so easy a kid can do it and it’s all in one bag. Below are pictures of the pie making from this hot summer afternoon, I know really? What was I thinking?
Now for that dinner.
Salad, HUGE thumbs up. Abbie specifically came to me and said it was really, really, really good, and we need to make it more often:) Dyaln hates tomatoes so not for him. And T if you are reading this, I know you hate cucumber so probably not for you either.
I thought it was good but over all we say..so/so cause the sole just had a weird texture. Overall, we just didn’t like the sole. We are bigger fans of Tilapia, so next time we are switching the fish out.
Half the photo’s were taken with my iphone, it just takes a descent quality picuture, if the lighting isn’t too low. My 20D took most the apple pie pictures but the problem I have with the 20D is, I have to crank it all the way to ISO 1600 and it always has a yellow glow and of course will be grainy. I have used friends camera’s and I can take the same photo on a much lower ISO and the light comes out just so much better and more natural. Still on my dream list. A newer version of my camera, a bigger veiw screen would be so nice. I shouldn’t be ungrateful though, but I do feel as though it limits what I can do. For now I use what I have used for so many years now. It frustrates me though. More often than not I don’t pick it up very much and that makes me sad.
