Welcome Back……And its Fall

Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
William Cullen Bryant


I hate to start this post by saying WOW where has the time gone, but that is exactly how I feel...time has just been zooming by.  So much has been going on, but nothing really earth shattering.  Just everyday life.  But over the last several days/weeks I have been thinking alot about my blogs and thinking I need to get back into the groove.  Not sure why I always go through this about this time of year, but maybe it has something to do with the fact that this is my favorite time of the year and there is so much to do and things going on that I like to share about.  This is one of those areas where my appetite is bigger than what I can actually handle.  But I am once again going to try to get myself on some kind of a schedule. 

So I have making notes and jotting ideas down for my well as all my other ones.  They desperately need to be updated notes too.   Lately things have been changing around here, between work and family so think it is time to start changing things around here.

Today happens to be a great Fall day…the sun is shining so brightly outside and the temps are great.  I keep asking myself my am I sitting in the house doing this when I should be outside enjoying the last of our pretty days I am sure.   Will try to get outside for a little bit today though.

baked_apples Got up this morning and decided to put some apples in the Crockpot  to make some baked apples.  So easy and so yummy.   I used Stayman Winesap apples, they are my favorite.  Since I am only making a few I am using my small Crockpot.  

Baked Apples in the Crockpot

3-4 apples
1/2 cup of water
1T. cinnamon
2 T raisins (Ididn’t use these today)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 pad of butter on each apple baked_apples1

Optional…sprinkle with walnuts towards the end of cooking

Peel and core apples, and place in Crockpot with water.  Mix together remaining ingredients and fill the center of the apple, sprinkle with cinnamon and add butter. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.  About the last hour I Wadd nuts.  So easy and so tasty.

It’s time to get to work on my dinner plans now…

Have a blessed Day!

Those apples look yummy! Doug's not a raisin guy so guess he wouldn't enjoy them as much ;-)

Glad to see you blogging again. I've missed you!

Enjoy the nice weather while it's here. I think we're getting a cold front come through in the next day or so. :-(

Hugs xo
