Apple Pie Lie

So a while back…like a couple of months ago…maybe more…my husband decided that we should bake an apple pie and take it down to our neighbour that doesn’t have a lot of food or a family to cook for.

It was a great idea, However, that week we just didn’t seem to have enough time to make a pie and he really didn’t want us to forget about it. So he went to the grocery store and bought one…took it out of the box and delivered it to her. I didn’t go for some reason.

Fast forward to last night. We were having small group in our home and hubby sees her just arriving home from work and tells her to come up for some pizza. She was very grateful as it was late and she hadn’t had supper yet.

She came up and met me in the kitchen and said that she was sorry that she didn’t have time to come and thank me for the pie. At first I completely forgot what she was talking about but then quickly told her not to worry about it… But that I was glad that she enjoyed it.

She then proceeded to tell me that was the best apple pie she had ever eaten. She goes on and on about the pie as I’m smiling and nodding…and then she hits me with this statement: “that was better than any store made pie. You did a really good job making it”

Meanwhile I’m watching her tell me this but see my hubby in the background smiling at me. I can’t believe he told her that I made the pie!!!! She’s going on and on about how all her friends had a piece and they just thought it was the best pie ever….better than any pie you could get in the store. I nod my head and tell her that I’m glad she liked it. Too stunned to tell her I didn’t bake it.

Fast forward to when the meeting is over and she’s leaving. I ask her if she would like some apples to take home with her as we have a huge bag of them. She said she would and then asked me if those were baking apples.

I told her no that they were just for Big E because he likes apples. She then compliments me on the pie again…over and over and then…..

Asks me for the recipe.


Please know that up until now I didn’t lie. I never told her that I made the pie…but I never told her I didn’t either.

At this point I really didn’t know what to do. So I told her that I didn’t have it on hand that I would have to look for it for her. She told me that was fine just to give it to her whenever I found it.

She left and do you know what happened next? Yup…my hubby got a stern talking to for telling her that I made the pie. He said he repeatedly told her I didn’t make it….but I’m not sure if I believe him. He was getting quite the chuckle out of the whole situation.

What about you? Have you ever been in a situation like this before? What happened?
