2008 Story Set
I was - in pain - my heels (from all the store walking and treadmill hopping and I hit Walmart AND Long's at lunch while on a hunt for a rolling pin (all mine in --- San Diego))
real pain - I am not supposed to go barefoot - or not much - and I am to wear cushioning on my heels or the orthodics.
So I was down feet up and the apple pie in the oven. 400 degrees. Derated for the glass pan. NEW glass pan.
I had baked the leftover stuffing (1 cup) for 1 hour and had it and a piece of pumpkin pie (the scrap pie - the leftover filling and crust.) for dinner
the apple bakes at a high temp
derated 25 degrees for glass pan
I stepped into the kitchen to check the pie - oblivious to time
yep - pie - thick and juicy and heaped with apples - had "gone over" and the bottom (on a foil oven liner) was smoking nicely
Where was the smoke detector?????
I raced for window and fan and vents and of course oven off and the foil liner tossed into the backyard - once pie out of oven (lovely brown crust - PERFECT)
NO FLAMES ---- would have been in another minute!!!!! (I keep extra salt in the kitchen when baking.)
I stuck the bread in (also high temp cooking) once the oven was settled and had a new liner
It was done in 15 minutes - bread buttered and oven off and letting it brown a little on the bottom
I ate an end ---- very nice.
I will ice the bread in the morning when cool.
Smoke gone - will run candles tomorrow.
it is 11 PM and my eyes rattle and my heels still hurt
Now the oven is off - I may try another glass of wine-----
Summer has stopped hiding .
