The Bag Lady is still busy with summer's bounty! She went to town on the weekend to a "pie-making" party. Friends of hers have a single apple tree in their backyard. It produced 4 bags of apples. Two of those bags made 48 (yes, forty eight!) pies! The Bag Lady brought the remaining two bags of apples home and is in the process of making even more jelly and applesauce (Applesauce Cake... yum!)
Nothing from these apples is going to waste. The Bag Lady gave the peels and cores to a few visitors who were camping out in their trailer in her yard....
The visitors only stopped overnight on their way to (*cough* the abattoir *cough*) their final destination.
That's a phenomenal number of pies. It sounds like a lot of work, but I know how much you'll appreciate it in the dead of winter.
How very gracious of you to give the guests a tasty last supper.
They had more apple peel (and potato peelings, too!) for breakfast before they left!
You remind me that the apples in my refrigerator are still waiting for me to find the sugar so I can cook them in the pot I havefound.

Oh, i can only imagine how good your kitchen smells right now!
Wow, 48 pies :) Delish!!!!!!!!!!! Do you have a favourite apple recipe?
Mary Anne - find that sugar!
Messymimi - oh, yes, it smells fabulous (I always add a cinnamon stick when I'm cooking apples!)
Dana - Applesauce Cake. Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies.... yum! (Thanks for taking the time to visit)
Loved finding you via my post/october unprocessed ;) The pigs are so darn cute!
Thanks for stopping by, Janelle!
I had to leave your ice cream post in a hurry - I could feel my waistline expanding!
Last meals are a kindness.
Apple pies.. Yum!
Does a final meal of apples make the apple-smoked bacon extra tasty? ;)
I can't even imagine 48 pies all at once. I've done up to 5 in a day, but that is my limit. (And no matter how many I make, they disappear rapidly.)
Oops, meant applewood smoked bacon!
This little piggy goes to market...
(sorry, can't help myself tonight!)
Hilary - I hope the pies will be yummy!
Karen - you made me laugh. Several times. Thanks!
Hmm, been a long time and my French is rusty. As I recall, "abattoir" means Happy Loving Pig Retirement Home, and please don't disabuse me of that notion!
Crabby - actually it's French for "Sty in the Sky", but it's interchangeable with your definition.
