Apple Pie


Welcome to Day 1 of the A-Z Challenge! My theme is Meditations, Memories and Musings, mostly autobiographical, sometimes futuristic. Hope you enjoy your visit!


Sickness during the holidays sharply curtailed our celebrations and my son-in-law did not receive his one culinary request: apple pie. A few weeks into the new year they came over and I made an apple pie for him. I can’t eat apple pie, so it was purely a labor of love.

  1. Setting a beautiful table with the correct placement of things, napkins folded correctly, a small gift at each place. Taking the time to do it right, which I hope translates to loving and caring for guests at my table. I can’t have your apple pie (GF) but it IS a gift of love I appreciate.

  2. Looks like a fab pie. Food is such a wonderful way to say you care 🙂

  3. Food is definitely a huge labor of love. With a family, it’s an everyday act of love; holidays, we amp it up further. Love your photo and thought of the day. Looking forward to more as we move through the alphabet. As a slimmer, I can’t eat much apple pie either but it sure is fun to look at.

  4. Food can definitely be a love language. Daddy always said he married Mama for her homemade buttermilk biscuits. I cook certain things a certain way for the people I love. Take Spaghetti: Hubby wants separate whole meat balls, sauce on the side. Daughter wants meat-sauce. Son prefers all cooked together in one pot. So, I’d cook spaghetti a different way each time.

  5. Labor of love makes the offering, whether food or otherwise, that much sweeter!

    That pie looks beautiful! I’ve an avid baker but I’ve yet to tackle making a pie. It’s on my ‘to try’ list for this summer, once blueberries come into season at the U-Pick farms 🙂

  7. I definitely cook for those I love. I’ve always said that the most important ingredient in my cooking is love.

    I can’t help but be curious why you can’t eat Apple pie, sorry this is my first time to your blog so if you spoke of it before I didn’t see it.

    Happy A to Z’ing!

      At the time I was eliminating both gluten and sugar to see what my “issues” were. Although I now know I can have the gluten, I try to keep it to a minimum, but I have made an effort to do without “added sugar” (I eat fruit and use honey and stevia in small amounts) for almost two years now and feel a lot better. Thanks for stopping by! I’ll return the favor shortly.
