Anticipating Fall

I'm still here. No need to send in the authorities or anything--I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'm just a lazy blogger. But you guys already knew that. :-)

The other day I got my latest Southern Living subscription in the mail. The main headline? Welcome to Fall. Since fall doesn't come easily to Southeast Texas, I'm gonna have to force it. I might get a few mums, make some apple cider, and of course, buy a pumpkin pie spice candle. I love fall!

I love that leaf picture. Makes me think of fall!

I've been anticipating fall some, too, recently. Paul and I have been trying to decide what to do for thankssgiving (stay here or go to Houston), and thinking about that makes me hungry for fall! And then of course the conversation naturally leads to what are we going to do for Christmas.

I am looking forward to it being cool enough that we can sit outside on the porch!

Um, I was kinda winging it when I made it in Michigan, so I'll try my best to remember it!

Here goes:

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

-Prepared refrigerator crust for 2-crust pie (I used Pillsbury)
-4 cups strawberries
-4 cups rhubarb
-1/2-3/4 cups sugar (I can't remember!)

Grease pie pan. Place first crust into the pie pan.

Mix together strawberrries, rhubarb and sugar, until juices form. Pour into pie crust. Dot with butter. (I forgot this last time, but it might be good to try.) Top with second crust. Cover edges of pie with foil to prevent burning. Bake using the directions it says on the side of the pie crust box, for a prepared fruit pie.

Oh! One correction to the pie recipe--Add 4 tablespoons flour or 2 tablespoons cornstarch to the fruit and sugar mixture. It'll thicken up the syrup as the pie bakes. I forgot to do this in MI as well!
