A Farewell Dinner

My daughter in laws grandma is leaving this week to go home.  She has been visiting since before the wedding.  I wanted to send her off with one last meal so I whipped up a bunch of stuff and sent it over to her.
I made a big batch of granola and made some french bread.                                                                                                          

 I baked a bunch of apple pies.  Some of the pies went to other friends.  Granny didn't eat 4 pies!


 I sent soup, mashed potatoes and gravy too.

 I made roasted carrots and refrigerator pickles.

 And some spinach au gratin.

 I packed it all up in gift baskets.

The main part of the meal were pasties.  These are excellent.  If you want to give them a try, you can find the recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2015/09/up-pasties.html
