Today our small group from church had a potluck picnic in the park. It was a lot of fun to see them all again as we had been on hiatus for the summer. Elizabeth, our leader's wife, was pregnant at the time due to have their third child and I was still recovering from having Josiah. It was funny though because I was the only one who brought a homemade item (2 apple pies) and we all joked around about it. I had forgotten (ONCE AGAIN) to peel the apples, so we had especially tart apple pie (much to David's liking). One of the couple's sons said to me "I am glad you forgot to peel them, it is better this way." That was sweet of him to say! I either do that or forget to "dot the butter" underneath the pie crust. I now have in big letters on my recipe "PEEL THE APPLES" and "DOT THE BUTTER." I hope now to not make those mistakes again!
