Back from vacation

I just returned from a week at Myrtle Beach, S.C. As always, the weather was perfect - no rain. Every year at this time, my daughter, grandchildren and I take off for a week at the beach.

This is a time we take full advantage of &vacation;" no cooking and cleaning - just relaxing, shopping and eating out.

Apple crumble pie

Here's another recipe that I have come across that I am sure all of you would enjoy! It's simple to put together:


5 cups cubed peeled tart apples;

1/2 cup sugar;

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour;

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon;

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg.

1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches.)


1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cold butter or margarine.

In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients; spoon into pie shell. For topping, combine sugar and flour; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over pie. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 375; bake for 40-45 minutes or until the topping is browned and apples are tender. Cover crust edges with foil during the last 15 minutes if needed. Cool completely before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Bible school

St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Funkstown started its Gospel Express Vacation Bible School on June 25. Bible school will run from June 25 to June 29, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
