* get in the kitchen & make me some pie …

Posted on October 21st, 2009 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.


Moving along to apple idea #2 for the week.  I can’t really take credit for this one but I’m going to share it with y’all anyway.   I stole this idea from Cathy.  I really wish y’all could see her house.  She’s like some super freak cleanin’ woman.  It’s always spotless.  I think they really live in the garage and only go in the house when they have company coming over.  No normal people keep stuff that clean.  Not only is her house spotless, it always smells sooo good.  Unlike my other people’s houses.  One day I walk in Cat’s house and I immediately think … oh dear goodness, she does love me, she is baking me an apple pie!  I heard angels singing.  Much to my dismay, she was not baking me an apple pie.  She did offer me a little debbie tree cake, but no home made apple pie.  But her entire house smelled like fresh baked apple pie.  Being the nosey person that I am, I inquired about the soothing warm aroma that was now surrounding me (it was also making me plot a trip to mcdonalds to get an apple pie or 12).  She let me in on her secret … and I’ve been doing it ever since.  You take an apple or two, chop them up, peel, core, seeds and all.  Throw them in an old pot, add some cinnaman & a few drops of vanilla flavoring and fill the pot with water.  Put on your stove top burner and warm up to simmering.  Best air freshener you will ever use.  Not so good for encouraging dieting but your house will smell yummy and it’s way cheaper than candles.  Try it and let me know what you think!

    Who’s web page is this? The person seems a little familiar that I am reading about. Nope, can’t place her, but glad to know she has time to think of things to do with apples. I am certain if she had more time she would be checking on her decrepit friends. If she had any, which obviously she doesn’t, duh!!!! If she had any decrepit friends, which I have already said im sure she doesn’t, she would surely check on them every now and again. Thank goodness she doesn’t because i’m certain that she (the decrepit friend) misses her very much. I mean IF she had any i’m certain THEY would miss her very much.

    Heather, don’t feel bad, she does the same to family. Not sure I can remember the last time she visited. Guess it’s good to know where we fall in the whole scheme of things.

    Heather I have told her and told her to call and check on you and she just wont listen. We really miss you at work and hope you fill up to full days soon back with us. Hope you are feeling better and you are still in my prayers. Love you

    Thad, Melinda is probably afraid of coming to your house cause she will more than likely have Richard with her and he may never return to NC.

    Heather, I thought you looked just great at the last football game. Foot propped up, people waiting on you hand and foot, and you had a spectacular view of our fantastic cougar football players and cheerleaders. Yep, I do believe I saw you at a game. Wait……there are suppose to be people behind me but they don’t come. I think its a “Where’s Waldo” family. I know they are somewhere, just not the game. Maybe at the church house, or TN, or even at their home!! But their seats do come in handy when my kids come to watch. I love those people who are suppose to be behind me. Maybe I will ask Melinda if she knows who sits there!!!

    I love the smell of cinnamon and cloves simmering in a pot of water.
