Apple Pies and New Utensils

Last Friday, as part of our Cooking Class, K made her first ever homemade apple pie from scratch. Well, actually, she made 3 apple pies; One large one and two small ones!

This is the pies before they made it into the oven. Not bad for a beginner, huh?

Looks suspiciously like K is attempting to lick those fingers, doesn’t it?

I sure don’t remember MY first pie turning out so pretty!

Aren’t they cute? My husband was MORE than happy to help out when I told him we needed some tiny pie pans. How did he help, you ask? He bought a couple of those premade pies, ate the pies (what a sacrifice!), and cleaned the pans for us so that we could use them for this.

We didn’t get any pictures of the oh-so-awesome guacamole that we made that day, but it was a hit…well, with everyone who likes Mexican food in this house, lol. Kaylea experienced pitting and scooping avocados for the first time and got to use a garlic press for the first time. (And I must confess, that was a first for me, too. I’ve always done fresh garlic with the old knife-press method…this was much cooler!)

This week’s class focus was on utensils, and while in the kitchen she used, for the first time: An apple corer, a garlic press, a pastry cutter, a pastry blender, and several others. She was able to name 15 of the 17 utensils we used in the kitchen that day, so I must be doing something right!
