easy pie crust for all your pot pie needs
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
-1/4 cup coconut oil, cut into pieces (i place both the coconut oil and butter in fridge so they harden)
-6-10 tbsp cold water (i get a glass of ice water when i start so that i will have icy cold water when i need it.)
Roll out to eleven inches and use according to recipe.
This is one of those comfort foods that instantly take me back to childhood, the steamy, savory pie coming out of the oven and the aroma filling our home. i LOVE this meal and it has become a family favorite with my husband and boys.

This is the altar i have prepared for Autumn. as the leaves fall i have collected colorful ones from around my property, there is are other elements that represent autumn to me, apples (we are surrounded by orchards), seeds from the wild plants and ones we have saved from the garden, poke-berries and milkweed fluff. this is a sacred space and the crystals hold my intentions for the altar. it is here that i meditate, journal, and plan.
do you have an altar or sacred space? what important things are there for you?
it’s my favorite time of year and to celebrate it i have written a Haiku.
