Aprons and stuff

I am a city girl (which is kinda laughable since I don’t live in like a HUGE city or anything) I like having a Target nearby, I like having a Trader Joe’s not too far, etc. Yet there are days I dream of being a farm housewife, wearing an apron and having a pie cool on a windowsill. Is this a Midwest thing, or is it the fact that despite my honest sense of independence and self reliance, in the end I think I would be very good domestically? Who knows….

But pie is like my favorite thing to make. I make crust with veg shortening, and I make it in the mixer, but it is by far some of the best pie crust I have ever made. Embrace your inner 50’s housewife if that is what you want, we all have dreams. I still need Target….ImageImage
