O the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve,
Just to watch the happy life of my green things growing.

not only hot, but the air was filled with humidity
super hair frizz weather
so what did I do?
I baked pies
Yup, that’s right
I cranked up the air conditioning and spent the afternoon in the kitchen
two pies, a peach and an apple
my oldest son, Eric is making his way east tomorrow on a business trip
and will be spending a week or so here at home
and since we missed celebrating his birthday with him this month
I thought I should make him something special for dessert
he’s not a birthday cake lover
his favorite has always been apple pie
So happy 25th birthday Eric!
happy 100th birthday Julia Child!
(even though apple pie is obviously not french)
