Finally getting some much needed Spring showers..the lilacs are starting to bloom and my little crabapple has load of buds,also started cleaning my much neglected flower beds, but now the bugs are out too..the rain is a good excuse to stay in and bake,read blogs and watch some movies with dinner tonight, as got 3 movies in the mail today from Netflix 'Fast Food Nation','Running with Scissors' and 'Saved'... no foreign films this week..

Theres' a slight chill so tonight, we will have some comfort food.. swiss steak with rich mushroom gravy,vadalia onions and green peppers, smashed potatoes with garlic, steamed fresh green beans.. and only had 3 big granny smith's... so a small rustic apple pie, as its only the 2 of us..

Played with the camera while the pie was in the oven..been so inspired by the blogs,to do more at the kitchen sink,depression green and glass critters with primulas,daffodils and sprigs of lilacs..had some leftover pie dough so will do up scrapcookies, a smear of butter,sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar,something my grandma use to with leftover dough and I just love the thin crisp texture..Grandma was frugal and creative too..
