a 1943 bi-plane ride


(One more Ohio post... and it's a special one!)

Jeremy was surprised with a 20 minute ride in a 1943 bi-plane (restored) for his birthday while we were in Ohio. So cool!

The pilot (and owner) runs an aircraft refurbishing business and they sell or give those planes to mission organizations or other non-profits that need airplane access. (For example ... Mission Aviation Fellowship in Haiti got a plane from them to fly in the mail - among other things like people and cargo - from Florida every week! Ring a bell, Kosters?) Talk about re-using - they essentially take wrecked planes and rebuild them, giving planes that wouldn't have had a chance except for parts another life!

Jeremy getting in!

Ready to go!

Coming in for a landing (on the grass).

A happy birthday boy. (Thanks again Shunks!)

George rode after Jeremy ...

And guess who else got a surprise ride?! Super fun.

(Dad, you would've LOVED it.)

a birthday pie - and a recipe!


A certain hubby of mine had a birthday last week. He turned the exciting 3-2 and we went to Ohio to celebrate. That's pretty much his gift, but I wanted to surprise him with an apple pie.

And, boy, it was YUMMY served warm a la mode!

Here's my scrumptious flaky apple pie recipe:

Crust: Martha Stewart's Pate Brisee 

Filling: 6 large granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
a few tsp of cinnamon (or to taste)
a few Tblsp white sugar (depending on how sweet you like your pie)
a splash of lemon juice (or juice of one medium lemon)

Mix together, spoon into bottom pie crust. Slice several pieces of butter on top, close with second pie crust. Brush crust lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle a little white sugar on top to make it pretty.

Bake at 375*F for 1 hour until bubbly and brown.

Cool for awhile and then enjoy!!


Happy Birthday Love!
