Well, this has been quite the couple of days! We've had stranded travelers, emergency hotel reservations, driving on snowy, icy roads, a homecoming and a birthday dinner (dessert yet to come). Wes and Sam pulled in about 3:00 this afternoon. They left Seattle at 9:30 this morning. Seattle is about 150 miles away, which is about a 3-hour drive in good weather and light traffic. Wes said the roads were snow-packed for much of the drive, but not as treacherous as yesterday.
So here are my 3 chickies, safe and sound . . .
Here are the pies we're having when Sam and Andrew get home from Christmas shopping (yes, already!). These are the birthday sweets for Sam. He wanted ice cream, but since his favorite is vanilla I decided to make apple pie to go with it. See the little ones on the right? Those are little single-serving ones for me; one for today and one for tomorrow. I made them with Splenda with just a top crust, and I have no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream to go on top. Probably still too much carb at one time, but much easier on the glucose load than regular pie. They're in little ramekins that hold about 1/2 cup. Just right!
