Today I’m Thankful For…

Processed with VSCOcam

Today I’m thankful for my school and for the amazing people who work and volunteer here to make it such a great place to work.

Every year our PTO and parents graciously bring in enough pies so every teacher can take one home for Thanksgiving. Yeah. Amazing.

This is the part that gets me even more. Our PTO President baked me a GLUTEN FREE PIE!!! She came up to me earlier this week and said, “We’re making you a special gluten free pie to take home.”  It’s an apple crumble and it looks and smells amazing.

For someone to go out of their way to do something so special makes me feel so blessed and thankful.

We’ll see if I can make it until Thanksgiving to dig in. 😉

What and who are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Don’t just keep it to yourself, go tell somebody!

Here’s the recipe for you:

Apple Pie Crumble

1 1/2 cups of GF oats
1/2 cup GF flour mix
1/3 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp. GF vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  In a separate bowl mix the vanilla and butter.  Add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Press firmly into the bottom and sides of a 9″ pie pan.  Reserve a handful for the topping.
3 medium size Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. all spice
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
1 1/2 Tbsp. corn starch
1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375.  Put first 7 ingredients in a bowl, mix well.  Gently add the sugar.  Put in the unbaked pie crust and sprinkle with topping.  Bake 50 minutes.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
