Frugal Friday Challenge

Today’s Frugal Friday Challenge is to stay home and have a family game night!  Pick out a board game, and afterwards make a dessert together.   We are planning a cherry-themed family fun night. We will play Hi-Ho-Cherry-O with Emily (4), and afterwards we will be making cherry mountain pies.

To make cherry mountain pies, you will need 1 can cherry pie filling, white bread, and a pie iron. Start a fire in the fireplace, and when the fire is good and hot, start loading up the pie iron. You basically make a cherry pie filling sandwich with the white bread, close up the pie iron, and stick the whole thing in the fire. Cook to desired doneness, and serve warm.


  1. Make sure to butter the bread to make it both tasty and easier to remove the pie after it is cooked.
