We enjoyed our second and final day of Jimmy’s staycation! I’ll tell ya what, I think I like staycations just as much as “real” vacations where you travel somewhere.
Friday found us once again busy with a mixture of work and play. First up, we headed to Trax Farms to look at the pumpkins and pick up locally grown apples for pie. Jimmy and I also grabbed coffee because coffee is always a good idea 😉
The farm store had half peck-sized bags that you could fill with any variety of apple, so I filled one with a couple of each type of apple that is best for pies. I must have had six different kinds of apples in that bag and Jimmy was so pumped for me to make a pie.
His absolute favorite dessert is apple pie, so he was eager for me to get baking! I will have to share my recipe on here. Jimmy’s mom makes the best apple pie and she gave me her crust recipe years ago. I try to always use it when I bake pies because it’s so simple and tasty.
While I worked on some Etsy orders and the pie, Jimmy and Sadie went to the trampoline park. I figured I was better off staying at home and getting my baking work done because I don’t think jumping on a trampoline is advised at nine months pregnant 😜
I baked a batch of cherry almond granola and peanut butter granolafor the Etsy orders along with the pie. I had some pie filling left over, so I put a few slices of the filling in between biscuits for future breakfasts. The house smelled good by the time Jimmy and Sadie came back!
Jimmy’s sister watched Sadie in the evening(!), so we used our free time to go on a little date! I booked reservations for a local restaurant and we had such a nice time chatting uninterrupted and not doing dishes.
We enjoyed pretzel bites with honey mustard (my fave!), salmon, and wagyu steak. We went down a rabbit hole researching wagyu beef and it was interesting to learn about. After dinner, we headed home so Jimmy could work on baby’s nursery before Sadie got dropped off.
It was another great day with a mixture of productivity and family time!
