Jackie came over and we made pie! We ended up making two punkins and two apples. One is punkin/sweet potato and one it punkin/walnut. WAY too much fun-speaking of, Jackie looked in the oven, giggled, and said, "I think it's on fire." Sure enough, I had forgot to put the drip pan underneath the drippy apple pies and they had caught on fire. So the entire bottom of the oven was on fire and I was just thinking how I don't have a fire extinguisher. So I ran to the pantry and grabbed the baking soda. Jackie and I timed it so she threw open the oven and chucked baking soda on the flames. Pies were saved and now... I just have a messy oven. Cheers!

What's that on the bottom of the oven? Oh yea, baking soda to smother the flames.

Mmmmm, and that punkin one too.


  1. Those pies look good! Matt and I made our first pumpkin pie from scratch last night it's goooooood. And yeah, fruit pies tend to drip. We usually cook them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for easy clean up, but it may increase the baking time a bit. Not sure.
