Too many pies?

Not likely!  But we did have a dilemma.  How to transport so many pies safely?  Sad but I couldn’t sleep.  So on thanksgiving morning I went to the power tools before we had to travel.

IT took about an hour but it sure was nice to transport three terrific pies safely.

The Pies:

Pecan, Apple and Carmel Apple.

I like pie.
