Sunday's Apple Pie
I don't know what went wrong tonight, but it took 2 hours to bake this pie. I've always had great success with apple pies, but this is the first time I've ever tried this particular recipe. I used a mix of baking apples fresh from a local orchard, which I do every fall. But the apples were so dry looking after 45 minutes in the oven. There was absolutely no moisture for well over an hour and then it took another hour to get enough juice to bubble. I eventually covered the crust with aluminum foil to try to prevent it from getting much darker. We'll have to see tomorrow how it tastes. I realized later that this recipe never called for setting the apple mixture aside for a few minutes. Maybe that's what I should have done. I do say, though, the house smells phenomenal! Wish me luck tomorrow when I take it to my gathering for dessert. I won't have to worry about a soggy crust, anyway.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
Fabulous and easy! Fairly spicy, so if you like less heat, you could tune back the cayenne. But I liked it just the way it is. I made it without the shrimp and didn't miss it at all.

Quinoa and Black Beans
I made this last night and it was fabulous. Plus, it fits so well into my busy schedule. Took about 10 minutes to prep. That means a lot, since my rule is, it can't take any longer to make than it takes to eat -- at least on weeknights. :>) This had a ton of flavor, spicy but not too spicy. It could be a side dish or a main dish. And quite frankly, for fiber and protein, I think I got my daily recommended amount just out of this one dish. I only used one can of beans, since so many reviewers recommended that. I could have used a few more, but not an entire can, so it wasn't worth opening another one. I brought it to work today for lunch, since so many people said it tasted good cold. If it does, this is definitely a dish I will do over and over.
