Make your house smell like pie.

Last night, after Paul & I got home from school (him school, me gym). I didn't have any plans for dinner (meaning nothing excited me on Pinterest) so Paul popped in a pizza, his go to dinner. Men. He somehow spotted my 10 pre-made pie crusts in the freezer that I bought out of hunger at Costco the week before. *Jusification* Holidays are coming and I thought I could make some pies for friends & family, Okay? I'm in the office & I hear, "Kelley, you should make some pie tonight." hint, hint. Minutes/debates later we had both decided on Pumpkin. We so festive.

This was my first time attempting pumpkin pie and let me tell you, it is no joke! Or as I companied out of frustration in the kitchen 2 hours later…"this 'ish is hard!" Pre-made pie crusts? You are not all you are made out to be. Pumpkin pie finally was ready 4 hours later, meaning it was midnight. Perfect timing. Honestly, it was just ok, the crust didn't do too well but this was just a side story to the real gem I made over-night. It's a Pinterest find and let me tell you, it's like heaven in yo mouth.

Cinnamon Apple Crock pot oatmeal - devine. 

Find the original recipe here. It's much more healthy than mine ;-) Here's what you do!

1 cup of steel cut oats
1 apple (peeled & cubbed)
2 tsp ground Cinnamon 
4 ounces of liquids (I did, 3 water & 1 2% milk)
Raisins to taste 

Basically just combine all that goodness into your crockpot, set it to low and wait 7 hours. We cooked it over night and our house smelled like Pie in the morning!! To give it some sweetness I sprinkled my bowl with brown sugar. All done!
