many moons ago my grandmother would occasionally serve the above mentioned menu for supper. nuthin else, just the pie(hot)and milk.
i had always thought this dish to be a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition until one day when i watching the 1934 production of the movie "Of Mice and Men". a scene in the movie has the "hired hands" sitting down to a meal of "hot apple pie and milk".
anyone know if this was a "depression" area meal?

Breakfast, lunch and supper. Try to sneak in a scoop of vanilla icecream now and then.

From my grandparents, I got the impression it was a special occasion meal during the depression.
It seems that if you could afford and spare the sugar to make the pie, you celebrated.
We had it often on sunday evenings, when we had a big dinner and something like this for supper.
