At first I was exciting about the theme but couldn't think about what to make. So I sent out a small survey to some family/friends. I found out that when asked what you think about when someone says pie, most people think of apple pie (only one person said that pie reminds her of math). Another question was what time of day do you like to eat pie? Most everyone's answer was after a meal. My mom was the only that said any time of the day!! I'm so my mother's child, cause that would have been my answer as well. So at this point I was still thinking about what to make. I figured I would think about if for a day or so and then decide.
A few days later I still was thinking about it and Mike asked if we had anything planned for the weekend of the 18th, I said no. He said that he wanted to go upstate to buy the quad he saw July 4th weekend. After debating back and forth we decided now was the time to buy it. You must be wondering how this plans into this months theme. Well, when we go upstate we stay at our friend's house and everyone brings something for a meal. Mike and I brought breakfast stuff and dessert. I was going to make a pie, but then I decided I wanted to do something different. The usual dessert for upstate are s'mores by the fire. So I went with the camping theme and started to look for campfire desserts. I found something that seem easy enough to do with limited access to equipment. Apple Pie on a stick!
Apple Pie on a Stick
Red or Green apple
I had only brought 3 apples with me and it turned out we were 9 people. I didn't think everyone would want one, but felt bad that I didn't bring enough. So after the apples were finished roasting we peeled off the skin and then cut them up before rolling them in the cinnamon sugar. This way everyone could get a taste. Wouldn't you know it did taste like apple pie filling. I would try this again.
