oh the weather outside is frightful. but the fire is so delightful!
apparently this storm that hit was supposed to be the biggest in years.
school was cancelled. work ended early. and stores closed.
so now here we are "snowed in" but nothing monumental occurred.
but i thought i'd share two delicious recipes, both of which we had for dinner.
sooo delicious and perfect for fall and wintertime weather.
green beans with cranberries and almonds:
this is an old time favorite that my mom always makes and is so easy.
fresh green beans
In a frying pan combine the ingredients over medium heat and cook until almonds are toasted and beans soft.
favorites apple pie
1 1/2 c. flour
8 T. butter, cold
1/4 tsp. salt
7 T. ice water
work flour, butter, and salt together with fingers until well blended. add water and work into dough.
gather into a ball, cover, and chill for at least 30 min.
5-8 peeled and sliced apples
1/4 c sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. lemon juice
3 T. butter cut in small pieces
combine ingredients in large bowl
Roll dough out on cookie sheet. Place dough in pie tin.
I doubled my dough recipe so I could create a top and used a leaf cookie cutter.
Optional to use one beaten egg yolk to glaze the top.
Cook at 400 degrees for 45-55 minutes and enjoy!
