Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather
It is great to be back here with you this week. My sweet husband and I took some downtime last weekend and it was so nice, but I am always ready to get back home, I am a bit of a homebody.

We have some Apple Hand Pies for a special treat today and I sure hope that you will enjoy them. Now lets see what you have brought to share today and get it on the table so we can eat.

Apple Hand Pie

We just love an old fashioned Apple Hand Pie. I remember when my Grandmother made them she fried them and they were called fried pies. In an effort to have a healthier pie,(if there is such a thing) my Apple Hand Pie's are baked, but with the same flavor that my Grandmother's pie's had. I really like to make these pies and put them in the freezer in individual bags, then they make great grab 'n go pies. We take them in the picnic basket, and even have them at tea time, plus they make great gifts for a friend.

Rosemary Skillet Chops

If I told my son that we were having Rosemary Skillet Chops today he would come right over, this is one of his favorites. Actually these chops are very simple and very flavorful, so tender you can cut them with a fork. I was trying to remember the first time I ever had these chops, it was at my aunts house, many many long years ago. I watched her very carefully as she prepared the chops, then one day I made my own. The recipe has been refined through the years, but it is still one of our favorites.

Chicken and Chilies Bake

There is nothing that smells better than a Green Chili roasting on the fire. During the Chili harvest each year we always roast some Green Chili's and freeze or can them for the winter months. The Green Chilies that I am using in this recipe today were roasted and put in the freezer last summer during the harvest. When people ask me why are you doing all that canning and freezing in the spring and summer, I always say it is going to be so good when the snow is on the ground, and it is!
