Happy Belated Pi Day!

I finally made a pie for Pi Day (3/14….)! My boyfriend has been asking me since we’ve started dating to bake him an apple pie and I finally came through for him. I’m so proud of myself.

Excuse the horrid cell phone pictures. When the pie came out of the oven, all we wanted to do was eat it while it was still hot, so I snapped a quick photo.


It tastes a lot better than it looks, I promise. Want to give it a go?

Robb’s “About Time” Apple Pie


  • 1 c. light sour cream
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used real vanilla extract)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 c. apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 9″ deep dish pie shell

Topping (this makes a lot of topping. Cut down on the sugar in this pie by using only half the topping):

  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. margarine (which equals one stick usually)
  • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts

– For the filling: Mix together the sour cream, dry ingredients, vanilla extract, and egg. Fold in the apples and pour in to the pie shell.

– For the topping: Mix together the topping ingredients with your fingers and add to the top of the pie.

– Bake at 325*F for 1 hour.

On Sunday, my boyfriend started building the chicken coop we’ve been discussing for a few weeks. We’re using mostly reclaimed wood from a nearby farm. We are only wanting 3 or so chickens, anymore would be way too many for us to keep up with.


My boyfriend sent me this photo yesterday of the progress he made after he got home from work. Not only did he work on the chicken coop but he got his garden turned up so he can start planting soon. There aren’t enough hours on these gorgeous evenings. I spent yesterday repotting more tomatoes and helping mom put up more gourds for the Purple Martins to hopefully nest in.
