Rambling Monday ~ 24 October 2011

Wow…it’s been a week since I posted anything.

Friday night, while my husband had boxing on, I prepped a lot of hexies so I can start making flowers again.

Spent Saturday up in Virginia City and then at Bowers Mansion. It was supposed to be cooler up in VC…but they lied. We wandered over to our favorite park up there to play a game of cribbage and frisbee. OH! That reminds me…if’n you’re ever in the need of a GREAT frisbee that just ‘feels’ right? Look no further than Del Sol! Just love that frisbee!

Then over to Bowers Mansion for a couple of games of horseshoes and to walk around.

After getting back from our outing I started washing the box of Macintosh apples I got from Apple Hill so I could make applesauce.

I used a recipe I found online at Simple Bites…posted by Aimee on 29 Sept 2010. I liked the idea of leaving the skin on while cooking the apples!

CLASSIC APPLESAUCE RECIPE

I added two cinnamon sticks, two vanilla beans and two cups of apple cider with my apples.

Here is some of the finished pint jars of applesauce ~ it’s very tasty! Thanks, Aimee!
