Home Made... Sort of a Pie!!

I love seasons! I think I miss Utah more than ever around this time of year... When everything is starting to turn to orange and red. Brings back memories!! I especially LOVE when the weather changes, and it starts getting cold!

But I am here in Sierra Vista, and I am starting to make my own memories here! The thought came to me that I came down for the first time a year ago, and met my soon to be in-laws, and that's a memory here!! I've also started to notice that the weather here is changing, and I'm started to get excited about winter.
This past weekend Mark needed to go to Roswell, NM to deliver a car. He had asked me if I wanted to go with him. Grandma Maroney was so sweet and watched Grant so that I could go with him. I have never been to New Mexico, and to be honest, it wasn't that great. Out of the 14 hour drive, only 2 hours was worth looking at. It was there that Mark and I stopped at a road side fruit stand. I love these kind of places!! We bought a box full of apples, squash, peppers, and home cherry cider (who would have thought there was such a thing =D).
After we got home, I decided I wanted to try to bake a fresh apple pie... Mind you, I have never ventured in that area!! I had to call my mom to find out what "cutting" meant. With my mother-in-laws award winning recipe, I made my first attempt at an apple pie!
Doesn't look like much. Note to self, more pie crust next time!!
The "finished" product. It doesn't look very appetizing... But it actually tasted pretty good. I can't complain, because it was after all my 1st time, and I had NO one there to direct me. Maybe I'll attempt another one some day!!

I have to say, first off your pie looks scrumptious!! Second of all, it was FREEZING this morning when I got in my car to go to school Fall is here whether we want it or not.

I understand why you would miss the trees changing to orange and red because it is beautiful, but I have not been a fan of the temperature change, it is only September and should not be 45 degrees outside when I leave for class in the morning!

I love apple pie, and road side stands.
