Sunday Funday & An Easy Apple Pie!

Good morning, guys! after changing our weekend plans a thousand times, we wound up just staying home. Which was best because I was so sick yesterday and I’m glad we didn’t go anywhere! I was all in my baking feels so I picked up a couple things to make an apple pie!

I’m not a big fan of apple pie,  but was really craving it for some reason. I got 7 granny smith apples and probably only used 5? I had a lot of apple slices left that didn’t fit in the pre-made graham cracker crust I bought.

I love the crumble tops for apple pies, so that’s what I went with! It was a cup of flour, 1/2 C of sugar, 1/2 C of brown sugar, and 1/2 C butter. Then cinnamon & mix it all together! I doubled the recipe because I LOVE the crumble. It’s the best part of the pie, in my opinion. Also,  I subbed the sugar for Truvia. I would give you a conversion but… I just eyeballed this, honestly. 🙈 I’M NOT A BAKER OKAY?

The filling was apple slices, a few tablespoons of flour, 1/2 C Truvia, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/2  butter because we didn’t have any lemon… we definitely needed the lemon.

Then you just press the topping into the filling and pop it into the oven for 15 minutes at 450.  Then 45 minutes at 350!

Ice cream or whipped cream would’ve made this even better, but I didn’t want to run back to the store, so  I settled for a homemade latte and had myself a little dessert! It was so yummy & so friggin’ easy to make!

  • I didn’t have a head cold in this picture. It was a much happier time. 
Happy Sunday, friends. 🤧
  • Super stoked for the weather to not be garbage. 🌊
  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”
  • Been sleeping all day in anticipation for super bowl food
  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
